Verb + (으)ㄹ게요 : This pattern is used for the future tense. Even by native Korean speakers, the 게요 is often mispelled as 께요. This pattern has several restrictions, see the notes below.
- This pattern is restricted to first person usage.
- To make this the low form (반말) simply drop the 요 ending.
- This pattern can only be used as a statement and cannot be used as a question.
- This pattern must be used in a way to where the other person you are speaking to is somewhat related to the situation you are describing with the verb. "I" must be the subject of the action (though it is also acceptable for suggestions where it can also be "we"). See below:
- This pattern should be used when the action relates to the listener(s) directly or if it's for the listener(s)' sake.
- Due to reinforcement, the ㄱ in 게 is pronounced as '께.' See page ' ㄹ grammar + ㄱ, ㄷ, ㅂ, ㅅ, ㅈ' for an explanation on the rule.
