    Hey guys!
    I wonder about the expression 좋아하는 척하다. Seems like -는 is modifying the verb 척하다. But I thought that 는 modified nouns and not verbs. Have been trying to find an answer to this but has not found anything yet.

      는 usually modifies nouns but i think attaching it to a verb turns it into a noun. It would be like taking “to dance” and turning it into “dancing.” Hope that helps!
