Irregular Korean Verbs


안녕하세요 여러분! I'm Koreanstudyjunkie. Today, I have a Masterlist of all the Irregular Korean verbs you could ever need to know.



WHAT ARE IRREGULAR VERBS?


Irregular Korean Verbs are verbs that don't fit into the rules we know and love.


When conjugating Irregulars usually you want to remove that letter and perhaps add a new element to the word.


Usually irregular verbs are only irregular in certain circumstances. For example, when they are followed by a vowel they are conjugated irregularly.


Whereas if they are followed by a vowel, usually they will remain regular. That being said, today I'll be just giving you a compilation of as many of the irregular verbs that I can find.


No rules, just the words here. You can read about the different rules in another lesson.
