    I have a question about 하다 verbs. In the first example (전화 다 했어요), 다 separated the verb and basically came between the noun and 하다 but in the last one (더 공부하고 싶으면), 더 was before the whole verb 공부하다. So what’s the rule?

      I have the same question if someone knows please answer us

  • Lucy

    So can you actually put 다/다 before the noun ever, or does it just not make sense in grammar? Or does it just change the meaning of the sentence slightly?

      thank you! 🙂

  • Jose Raphael Delos Santos

    안녕하세요!

    I was kind of confused with the last sentence, “더 공부하고 싶으면, TTMIK에 오세요”, 더 was placed before the verb 공부하다. However, in the sentence, “전화 다 했어요”, 다 was placed between 전화 and 하다. 도와주세요.

    감사합니다!

    • Jixanh

      I think it’s because we’re talking about “phone calls”, as a noun in 전화 다 했어요 and not “calling” as a verb and in 더 공부하고 싶으면 we’re talking about “studying” and not “doing the studying”.

  • morgyy-morgg

    • Catsy

      You must use I or GA with JOHAYO.
      빅뱅은 방탄소년단보다 좋아해요
      I think this sentence is more correct as #2.

    • Catsy

      You must use I or GA with JOHAYO.
      빅뱅을 방탄소년단보다 좋아해요
      or 빅뱅이 방탄소년단보다 좋아요
      I think this sentence is more correct as #2.

    • 샨텔

      I’ve asked a Korean friend about this and has confirmed my example sentence is correct.
      저는, 너는 must be added, because the listener won’t know who you are talking about and because I am using “보다” particle at the end of 빅뱅 then I don’t need to put “이” or “을” ^^
      But both “좋아요” and “좋아해요” are correct.

      Your correction sentence is also saying Big Bang is better than BTS hahaha ^^

    • Catsy

      I have spoken with Korean people too. Your sample sentence is just using names in place of A and B, these could be anything. I am aware of what my sentence says–they are only examples. It says “i like x more than y”, you can omit 더.

      좋아요 means ‘to be good’ or ‘to like’ and in this example it can mean ‘better’. This is typically used with 이/가. 좋아해요 is an action of liking something, which is why you use 을/를.

      You do not have to use 저는, 너는. Context is implied. There are so many sentences where you can just drop 저/너/나 whatever.

      There are places where you can drop markers, but as a beginner it’s better to use them.

    • 샨텔

      I don’t know what the point of your comment is tbh, my sample sentence is correct.
      You are trying to correct my sample sentence, so of course I am going to point out that you have switched them around lmao (learn to take a joke)
      I know you can drop 저/너/나 and I agree as a beginner it is better to use them hence why I said it should be added.

    • Catsy

      My point was telling you that you weren’t right, why make this an argument?

    • 샨텔

      Dude you are the one making this into an argument. You commented ‘thinking’ you know better and I tell you that my sentence was correct BUT you can also use “좋아해요”.

      Not to mention you have to edit your comments and the 2nd example sentence is similar to what I wrote “빅뱅보다 방탄소년단이 좋아요” the only thing that is different is you put “이” instead of “을” and removed “저는”

      And you’re trying to tell me that my sentence is wrong?!

    • 샨텔

      There is no point 2 mid-level beginners arguing over object and subject particles.

    • Catsy

      Why discount someone who is also learning the language when you would’ve run across the same problems as each other? The issue with learning from Korean friends is that they would’ve spoken this language and not learnt how to teach it. Editing my comments to fix the order is something I was at least transparent with and not jumping down your throat about it.

    • 샨텔

      Dude, why are you still trying to turn this into an argument?
      In my previous comment, I meant that in a respectful way as Korean Grammar is not native to us, so why should we argue over what is correct or not? It is like the blind leading the blind. Do you understand?

      Yes, I agree with the issue of learning from Korean friends. It is the same as us English speakers trying to teach someone English. I only ask my Korean friends about example sentences I have made.

    • Catsy

      It’s not an argument to me. It’s not blind leading the blind when someone who has learnt a certain part of the language has already reached that point. For instance, say someone has learnt a language for 1 year and someone else has learnt it for 6 months. Obviously they are not going to be at the same point. What if someone has gone to university to learn a language and another is not but learning free online. What I’m saying is: you can’t just go to one person and say that it’s right because one person says it is.

      Your comments were definitely not respectful and you are still telling me I’m arguing with you. I’m just talking to you. If you read the other comments, you can see that non-native people here are correcting each other, and none of them are getting angry and upset about it. Moving the particles around still doesn’t make me any less informed than you and you really shouldn’t assume I am uninformed about some parts of Korean.

      You also have typos in your first sentence and used A instead of EO.

    • Catsy

      I’m not arguing with you, you just think you’re being personally attacked. I’ve asked people about how to make it into a sentence and the way you made it isn’t how it’s made with natives.

      The change from 좋아해요 and 을 is important, there’s a lesson on the difference. You can be incorrect even with minor mistakes like that. You’re going to make lots of mistakes learning another language, why make a big deal being called out on the internet as incorrect.

      저는 방탄소년단보다 빅뱅을 더 좋아해요.
      or
      저는 방탄소년단보다 빅뱅이 더 좋아요.
      is the correct way to write it.
