When you want to say something like, “it depends on the situation”, “it depends on the person”, or “it depends on how soon you finish this”, you need to use the structure -에 따라 다르다 [-e tta-ra da-reu-da] or -마다 다르다 [-ma-da da-reu-da]. This is quite different than the verb for “to depend”, which is literally translated to 의지하다 [ui-ji-ha-da] or 의존하다 [ui-jon-ha-da] and is only when you are talking about actually being “dependent” on someone about a certain matter.
