Only / -만

In this lesson, let us learn how to say “only” in Korean. The word to remember is -만 [-man] but the usage changes depending on whether you are saying “only” about a noun or a verb. Listen in to find out how to use -만 in a sentence and also practice making your own sentences in Korean!

In this lesson, we are going to learn how to say "only" in Korean. There are a few different ways to say "only" in Korean, but the most basic way of saying it is adding - 만 [-man] after a noun, a pronoun or the noun form (-기) of a verb.


1. Adding -만 after nouns and pronouns


이것 + 만 = 이것만 [i-geot-man] = only this

ex) 이것만 살 거예요. [i-geot-man sal geo-ye-yo] = I will only buy this.


저 + 만 = 저만 [jeo-man] = me only, I only

ex) 저만 들었어요. [jeo-man deu-reo-sseo-yo] = Only I heard.


커피 + 만 = 커피만 [keo-pi-man] = only coffee

ex) 아침에는 커피만 마셔요. [a-chi-me-neun keo-pi-man ma-syeo-yo] = I only drink coffee in the morning.


2. Adding -만 after noun forms of verbs

** In order to add -만 after a verb, you need to change the verb into the noun form using -기, and add -만 하다. You literally say "I only do + ~ing."

듣다 [deut-da] = to hear, to listen

듣 + 기 = 듣기 [deut-gi] = listening (noun form)

듣 + -기 + -만 하다 = 듣기만 하다 [deut-gi-man ha-da] = to only listen

Ex) 듣기만 했어요. [deut-gi-man hae-sseo-yo] = I only listened (and didn't talk).


보다 [bo-da] = to see, to look

보 + 기 = 보기 [bo-gi] = seeing, looking

보 + -기 + -만 하다 = 보기만 하다 [bo-ga-man ha-da] = to only see, to just look

Ex) 보기만 할 거예요. [bo-gi-man hal geo-ye-yo] = I will only look (and not touch it).


More sample sentences

1. 오늘만 일찍 왔어요. [oneul-man il-jjik wa-sseo-yo] = I got here early only today.

2. 맥주만 주문했어요. [maek-ju-man ju-mun-hae-sseo-yo] = I only ordered beer.

3. 왜 이것만 샀어요? [wae i-geot-man sa-sseo-yo?] = Why did you only buy this?

4. 어제 놀기만 했어요. [eo-je nol-gi-man hae-sseo-yo] = I did nothing but played.

5. 영화는 집에서만 봐요. [yeong-hwa-neun ji-be-seo-man bwa-yo.] = I watch movies only at home.
