Learn Korean Ep. 100: ~하고 있다 vs. ~해 있다 (Verb States)
I can't believe there have been 100 "Learn Korean" episodes! It's time to celebrate! Let's make a cake or something. This is a really big event, and I should celebrate it together with Keykat.
This week's lesson will contrast the two forms ~하고 있다 and ~해 있다. We've previously learned about the ~하고 있다 form (also called the Progressive Tense), but it looks a bit similar to the ~해 있다 form. When is one used and when is the other used? What are their differences? We'll talk about all of this and more in this episode.
Remember that there are free extended PDFs available for every "Learn Korean" episode (at the bottom of this post), and each contains additional information or examples not covered in the video. You can move through them at your own pace, print them out and use them as a free workbook, or skim them for a quick review before or after watching a lesson.
