1. What is a Conjunction?

Sentence Patterns

According to the Oxford Dictionary, the definition of a conjunction is a word that’s used to connect phrases, clauses, and sentences. Conjunctions in Korean work similarly to how they work in any other language, and learning Korean conjunctions and how to use each one properly will certainly boost your confidence in speaking, writing, and reading.

There are many Korean conjunctions, and if you struggle to understand all of the different Korean conjunctions, you’re not alone. Many Korean learners—even native speakers—struggle to use Korean conjunctions appropriately. In our Korean conjunctions list and guide, we’re going to focus on fundamental connecting words in Korean so as not to overwhelm you.

By the end of this article, you should have a better idea about the basic Korean conjunction rules, and an expanded vocabulary of Korean language conjunctions!

2. Conjunctions to Correlate Similar Thoughts

Improve Listening

1- 그리고 (geurigo) – “and”

  • 그리고 (geurigo) is used to link two different words or phrases together.
  • Apply this conjunction when you want to correlate two words.


스테이크 그리고 레드와인 주세요.
Seuteikeu geurigo redeuwain juseyo.
“I would like a steak and a glass of red wine, please.”

난 한국 가면 떡볶이, 순대 그리고 김밥 먹을꺼야.
Nan hanguk gamyeon tteokbokki, sundae geurigo gimbap meogeulkkeoya.
“I’m going to eat tteokbokki, sundae, and gimbap when I go to Korea.”

2- ~랑 (~rang) – “and”

  • ~랑 (~rang) means the same thing as 그리고 (geurigo).
  • The difference is that this conjunction is attached after a noun stem, is strictly colloquial, and isn’t used in official documents.
    • 김치
      gimchirang bap
      “Kimchi and rice”
    • 김밥 순대
      gimbabirang Sundae
      “Kimbap and Sundae”
  • Since ~랑 (~rang) has the same value as geurigo, they can replace each other without generating any changes in the meaning.


스테이크 레드와인 주세요.
Seuteikeurang redeuwain juseyo.
“I would like a steak and a glass of red wine, please.”

난 한국 가면 떡볶이, 순대랑 김밥 먹을꺼야.
Nan hanguk gamyeon tteokbokkirang, sundaerang gimbap meogeulkkeoya.
“I’m going to eat tteokbokki, sundae, and gimbap when I go to Korea.”

3- ~고 (go) – “and”

  • ~ (go) means the same thing as rang and geurigo.
  • This conjunction is always attached after a verb stem and usually means “I will do this AND THEN I will do this.”
  • A synonym of ~ 고 (go) is 그리고 나서 (geurigo naseo) which means “then.”


내일 아침에 요가하* 저녁에는 복싱할거야.
Naeil achime yogahago jeonyeogeneun boksinghalgeoya.
“I am going to do yoga in the morning and boxing in the evening tomorrow.”

*하다 (hada) meaning “to do” and 고 (go) meaning “and,” become 하고 (hago), meaning “After I do…”

내일은 밥먹 바로 집으로 갈거야.
Naeireun bammeokgo baro jibeuro galgeoya.
“I am going to eat and (then) go home.”

* 먹다 (meokda) meaning “to eat” and 고 (go) meaning “and” become 먹고 (meokgo), meaning “After I eat.”

4- ~와/과 (~wa/gwa)

  • ~ (~wa) is usually attached to noun stems.
  • ~ (~gwa) is usually attached to verb stems and after nouns that end with consonants.


나는 친구가 될 수 없어.
Neowa naneun chinguga doel su eopseo.
“You and I can’t be friends.”

3. Conjunctions to Express Condition

1- 만약 (manyak) – “if”

  • To talk about hypothetical situations, we often use 만약 (manyak), with the direct translation being “if” in English.
  • Note that 만약에 (manyage) is more commonly used in spoken language (conversation).

Manyak(e) biga ondamyeon nan geunyang jibe isseullae.
“If it rains, I’m just going to stay at home.”

만약에 네가 시험에 불합격한다면 어떻게할거야?
Manyage nega siheome bulhapgyeokandamyeon eotteokehalgeoya?
“If you fail the exam, what are you going to do?”

2- 한다면 (handamyeon) – “if”

  • Although 만약 (manyak) and 한다면 (handamyeon) have the same meaning in English, these two conjunctions are used in different situations.
  • To differentiate these two conjunctions:
    • 만약 (manyak) focuses on hypothetical situations.
    • 한다면 (handamyeon) focuses more on actions.

Geu hoesaga manghandamyeon wolgeubeul batji mothalgeoya.

1- 그래서 (geuraeseo) – “so,” “therefore”

Eoje mani apasseoyo. geuraeseo hakgyoe mot gasseoyo.
“I was really sick yesterday. Therefore I could not go to school.”

  • This conjunction means the same thing as 그러므로 (geureomeuro) and 그렇기 때문에 (~gi ttaemune).
