안녕하세요! After listening to this lesson, you will be able to say “something”, “someday”, “someone” and “somewhere” in Korean. In Korean, to say these words, you add -ㄴ가 at the end of the interrogative words for “what”, “when”, “who” and “where” in Korean. Listen in to find out how to do this and also listen to some sample expressions using these words! And as always if you have any questions, please feel free to ask us in the comment!

    저만 집에 있었어요. 비가 오고 있었어요. 그런데 누곤가 왔어요. 문에 “knock knock” 있었어요. 뭔가 이상했어요. 심야12시 있었어요. 어딘가 속삭이는 것은 보냈어요…
    I was at home lonely. It was raining outside. Suddenly someone arrived. “knock knock” at the door. Something was strange because it was 12pm at that moment. The wishper from somewhere raised around me….

  • Chess8Ko

    Someone, someday will see me
    누군가 언젠가 전는 봘거예요

    • ryebun17

      I think it is ‘누군가 언젠가 저는 볼거예요. (i’m not shure about the rest of the sentence.) 🙂

    • Bradley Dixon

      this is really late but it would be 저를 볼 거예요~ not 저는 봘거예요

  • ryebun17

    1.어제는 쇼핑몰에서 뭔가 샀어요.

    2. Right now I’m cooking something for my mom.
    3. Someday I will marry someone.

    마자요?:) (pls. Correct me if I’m wrong)

    • Damnusername


  • 조슈아

    1. 어젠가 서울에 갈 거예요.
    I’m going to Seoul someday.

    2. 누군가랑 노래하고 싶어요.
    I want to sing with someone.

    3. 어딘가 집을 찾을 거예요. 그런데 여기 집아니에요. 죄송합니다, 그렇지만 가야 돼요.
    I will find home somewhere. But here is not home. I’m sorry, but I have to go.

    4. 여러분은 뭔가를 무서워요.
    Everyone is afraid of something.

    Corrections are welcome. I did notice that they never included 어떻게 as a possibility for this form. I don’t know if it is applicable for 어떻게 to become 어떻겐가 meaning ‘somehow’. I am not sure if it works like that. Or perhaps one should just use 어떻게 and based off of their intonations one can determine the meaning. If anyone could let me know, that’d be much appreciated.

  • Misaki Yoshikawa

    Great topic. I could really understand some lyrics in the new BTS song – Singularity with the help of grammar you introduced.
    For example, for this lesson there was a line:
    결국 엔언젠기봄이와. Finally someday the spring will come.
    I guess it is informal style.
    But I did’t understand 엔 particle well. So, there is 결국 and there is 엔 from 에. But why it’s in this form?

    Btw, there is some error with level 2 podcasts in the podcast app on iphone. And it gives the error for lessons 25-30, so they can’t be played. I don’t know, can it be fixed? It’s so convenient to listen to you on my way to work and back!

    Thanks a lot for you lessons! I really like listening to your voices and of course the material itself.

  • 카린

    Is it 무언가 or 뭔가?

  • TzoBngtn

    If i say: 어딘가 먹다 가고 싶어요?= do you want to go somewhere to eat? Is it correct?

    • Kenneth

      I do not think you can take the infinitive (dictionary) form of the verb 먹다 and place it in the middle of a sentence without first nominalizing the verb (changing it to a noun; see Level 2, lesson 14). I may be wrong, someone please correct us, but I think a more accurate transcription would be:

      어딘가 먹기 갈고싶어요?

    • TzoBngtn

      Thank you so much, if someone knows more about this please comment☺️

    • Kenneth

      가고 싶어요, sorry
