Too, Also / -도 / (part 2)

This is part 2 of our lesson on how to say “also” or “too” in Korean. In this lesson, we are introducing how to use -도 with verbs. In order to add -도 verbs, you need to change the verb into the noun form, -기, so listen in to find out both how to change a verb into the noun form and also how to use -도 with verbs after that.

Using -도 with verbs


Using -도 with nouns and pronouns is relatively simple since you just have to add -도 after a noun or a pronoun, as explained in the previous lesson.


내일 [nae-il] = Tomorrow

내일도 [nae-il-do] = Tomorrow, too.


우유 [u-yu] = Milk

우유도 [u-yu-do] = Milk, as well.


나 [na] = Me

나도 [na-do] = Me, too.


Let us review.


물 주세요. [mul ju-se-yo.] = Give me water, please.

물도 주세요. [mul-do ju-se-yo.] = Give me water, too, please.


내일 갈 거예요. [nae-il gal geo-ye-yo.] = I will go tomorrow.

내일도 갈 거예요. [nae-il-do gal geo-ye-yo.] = I will go (again) tomorrow, too.


Now, in order to use -도 with verbs, we need to learn how to change a verb into a noun.


Using - 도 with verbs

= Noun form of the verb + -도 하다


You can’t just use -도 with the verb itself, but you can make just a small adjustment by changing the verb into the noun form. By doing this, and adding the verb 하다, you are literally saying “to do + the verb in the noun form + also”. It may sound complicated, but this is no different from any other verb conjugation. Just remember -도 하다 as a set.


How do you change a verb into a noun?

There are a few different ways to change a verb into a noun. This is similar to using verbs in the “to do” and “doing” format and also using the nouns for the verbs (i.e. act and action, sing and song, etc.), but today we are looking at just one of those ways.


Adding -기 [-gi] to the verb stem to change a verb into a noun


보다 [bo-da] = to see

Noun form: 보 + -기 = 보기 [bo-gi]

보다 --> 보기도 하다 [bo-gi-do ha-da] = to also see, to even see

먹다 [meok-da] = to eat

Noun form: 먹 + -기 = 먹기 [meok-gi]

먹기 --> 먹기도 하다 [meok-gi-do ha-da] = to also eat, to even eat


More examples

잡다 [ jap-da] = to catch

--> 잡기도 하다 [ jap-gi-do ha-da] = to also catch; to even catch

팔다 [pal-da] = to sell

--> 팔기도 하다 [pal-gi-do ha-da] = to also sell; to even sell

사다 [sa-da] = to buy

--> 사기도 하다 [sa-gi-do ha-da] = to also buy; to even buy


** Note: Verbs that are in the form of “Noun + 하다” already (i.e. 공부하다, 청소하다, 노래하다, 준비하다, 요리하다, etc) don’t have to be changed in this manner. You can just separate the noun part from 하다 and add -도 after the noun part. (i.e. 공부도 하다, 청소도 하다, 노래도 하다, 준비도 하다, 요리도 하다, etc)
