뭐 : what

‘뭐’ means ‘what’ in English.

 

1) We can attach ‘예요’ after ‘뭐’ if we are asking for a specific thing.

Ex) 이게 예요? (What is this?)

{이 means ‘This’; 게 means ‘thing’}

{We attach ‘예요’ and not ‘이에요’ because ‘뭐’ ends with a vowel}

{뭐 => ㅁ + 우 + 어; 어 is a vowel}

 

2) We can also attach ‘뭐’ after a verb.

Ex) 오늘 해요? (What are you doing today?)

{오늘 means ‘Today’; 해요 means ‘do’}

I have been learning Korean language for more than 8 years in either Singapore or Korea. Writing this blog helps me to refresh my knowledge. I am still revising Korean language every now and then but not actively. This blog consisted of the gist of the several Korean textbooks that I am using and you may find some examples "de-ja-vu".
