안녕하세요~ Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you want to tell someone “hey, that’s not true” or “no, that’s not what I’m saying”? Have you ever needed to know how to say these things in Korean? Well, have no fear! TTMIK is here to the rescue! In this lesson, we are introducing 12 magnificent Korean phrases that will help you defend, deny, or negate!
In this lesson, we are taking a look at how to use the sentence ending “-(으)ㄹ 따름이다”. This is used to express the meaning of “only” as in “we can only …” or “what I did is just …”. This is a somewhat formal ending and can be found in many official (usually apologetic) statements as well as contexts where the speaker is expressing hope or regret, such as “I only did what he told me, but …” or “we can only wait for the result now”.
Welcome to another lesson in the Advanced Situation Expressions series. Throughout this series, we will take a look at common situations and some of the advanced expressions you can use in each of them. In this lesson, we will introduce various expressions you can use when you want to make suggestions and proposals.
