Today we'll be looking at the usage of "ㄹ/을 수록" Korean grammar pattern with some example sentences.
A connective ending used to imply that as the extent of the preceding statement becomes larger, that of the following statement also changes accordingly.
This grammar pattern can be used to express "The more you do (something) the more (something) happens.
Conjugation rule :
The verb stem ending with vowel is followed by ~ㄹ 수록.
The verb stem ending with the consonant is followed by ~을 수록.
