Today let's talk about the difference between 금방 and 방금. Personally, I think these two words are pretty cool, looking closely you will notice that the syllables are simply flipped around. Interesting right?
방금 means 'just' or a 'moment ago' and is used to describe an action or event that occured in the nearby past.
방금 일어났어요 I just woke up.
방금 작업을 완료했습니다. I just completed the work.
On the other hand, 금방 is often translated as 'soon' or 'shortly' and hence is used to describe a event or an action that is predicted to happen or is going to happen in the near future.
숙제 금방 할게. I'll do my homework soon.
금방갈 거야. I'll be there soon.
I hope you are now able to distinguish between 금방 and 방금. I will see you in the next lesson. Till then visit the website to learn more.
