  • my examples:

    1.제가 오늘은 아침밥을 안 먹은 채로 학교에 갔어요.
    2. 옆집 사람이 바지와 셔츠를 안 입은 채로 운동을 해요. (ㅋㅋㅋ)
    3. 책을 읽은 채로 잠들었어요.
    4.음악을 듣는 채로 공부해요.
    5.재현 씨는 전화 한 채로 티켓을 사러 갔어요.

  • The ~은/ㄴ ending is past tense when used with action verbs, or present tense when used with descriptive verbs.

    isn't 앉은, and 막은, present tense?
