In Korean, in order to say something like “if I have to eat cold french fries, I’d rather not eat” or “if I am buying a suit, I might as well buy a matching tie”, using the structure -(으)ㄹ 바에 is the easiest way to make your point clear. -(으)ㄹ 바에 is used to indicate that a second option is much better than the first (not eating is better than eating cold french fries), but it can also mean “as long as you are doing + V”. Listen to this lesson and read the PDF to find out more about how to use -(으)ㄹ 바에.
