    안녕하세요. 저는 홍콩인 이에요. 우리 선생님, 선현우 씨랑 최경은 씨, 제가 질물 있어요.

    언제부터 교육 시작해요?

    (알고 싶어요.)

    그리고 정말 감사합니다!

  • Shisubae

    I’m gonna try with this one ^^ Hope I haven’t done to many mistakes TT^TT

    오늘은 저 진짜 피곤해요, 그런데 잘 거예요 ^^ 아침부터 지금까지 한국어 공부했어요! [Today I’m really tired, therefore I’ll go to sleep. I studied korean from this morning until now]

    • Kenny Lau

      그런데 means “but”. 그러니까 is the word you are looking for.


    Am I the only one who sung JYP’s ‘Who’s your mama?’ when seeing the second sample sentence xD
    “머리부터 발끝까지”

    • Seokjin Jin

      JYP fans! Put your hands up! 🙂

    • EXOL-ARMY 꿈

    What is the difference between 서울까지 가요 and 서울에 가요 ?


    • Seokjin Jin

      If 까지 is used, the sentence has a nuance that the person is go to somewhere form somethere.

      However, 서울에 가요 just means the speaker goes to Seoul.

  • Michelle Lei

    It’s 오늘 not 오글
    부터 not 보터 🙂

  • Primrose Eden

    I’ve heard the sentence “멀리부터 발끝까지” once before in a 방탄소년단 song. Is there a reason why they used 끝 with 까지? I know 끝 means end but can 끝 be used with 까지 like this in other sentences as well?

  • Lee Alex

    어떻게 여기까지 왔지 ? How did you get here ?
    is this correct ?

  • olivia grummish

    i always remember 부터 is for time because of gfriend’s song, me gustas tu lolol

  • TJB

    선생님과 저녁 오후 7시부터 9시까지 드시고 싶어요. (I want to have dinner with you from 7 to 9 pm)
    어디에서 왔었어요? 어디까지 가요? (From where did you come? Where are you going?)
    서울에서 런던까지 여행해요. (I’m traveling from Seoul to London)

  • Cindy Jiang

    From Seoul to Busan
    = 서울에서 부산까지
    = 서울부터 부산까지
    Don’t you just use 에서 here since it’s locations?

    • Miyeon Yang

      In this case, it is interchangeable.

  • Ismoil

    How can I make the negation of 부타 에서 and 까지
