Making a question in Korean language. Can’t be easier than anything. By the way, I have only one question for ya. ARE YOU REEEEEEEAAAADY 😎😎😎🙌🙌🙌 Drop the question mark.
Making Questions in Korean language
That’s it. That’s everything you need to know for making a question with 해요 speech style. Make a sentence and add a question mark at the end. Now, go make every sentence into questions to bother Koreans.
Yes, It really is done. One single question mark is all you need. So, say yaaaaay and wait for me to say ‘yeah no’. There are things you have to know more about.
More Natural in Korean Language
Korean interrogative sentences often drop a subject in a sentence. It has simple rules. It drops a subject especially when the subject is 2nd person. So, when the subject is ‘you’, you can just drop it.
The dropped sentence component can be 3rd pronouns such as ‘he’, ‘she’, ‘it’ or ‘they’. In this case, it happens while you are talking about them already. Let’s check the example.
A: 차차씨는 어디있어요? Where is Chacha?
B: 아직 집에 안왔어요 She didn’t come home yet
A: 언제 와요? When will she?
B: 잘 모르겠어요 I don’t know
In this sentence, 차차 is already mentioned, so the answer skipped the pronoun. Simple right?
You Should Remember This
Formal honorific Korean speech style 합니다 use other conjugations for making questions. But, you don’t have many chances to hear it or speak it in a daily life because 해요 style is already respectful but also friendly.
Are you busy?
= sounds a bit cold. 합니다 style is too formal and cold often.
TV 보고 있습니까?
Are you watching TV?
= sounds like your boss has a talk with you. like ‘you’re watching fucking TV in an office?’
I’m talking about this because so many students learn 입니까? / 합니까 questions first. But I really don’t recommend you to learn it at first because it has a whole different nuance than the question you want to make (if it’s not super formal). Native Koreans don’t often use 합니다 style in casual conversation.
Order & Question
Ordering and questioning are really similar in Korean language. If you learn them together, it would be much easier to remember. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s jump into the next tutorial and see how similar they are. And if you liked this tutorial, join us in Patreon! We are waiting for you!

$15, maybe it’s nothing that you can earn after a couple of hours of labor. Or, maybe you have to work for full days to earn it only because of where you were born. And $15, It’s the average price of Korean textbooks. Life is unfair. But that’s why we can help each other, we are helping each other.
