Today we'll be looking at the usage of " N (이)네요, A/V 네요 " Korean grammar point with some example sentences

Usage :

This grammar pattern is used to indicate that the speaker is impressed or rather surprised by a fact he/she learned through direct experience. For example, if you want to say, "Wow, it's already summer", then you can say, "벌써 여름이네요". It can be used to indicate your emotional reaction to what you have just realized.

Also sometimes it is used when agreeing with something said by someone else.

For example-

A: 오늘 날씨가 춥지요?  (Isn’t it cold today? )

B: 네, 정말 춥네요. (Yes, it really is cold)

Conjugation rule :

After removing 다 from the base form of the verb and the stem of the adjective, just add 네요 after it. for nouns, add 네요 at the end when the noun ends with a vowel, add 이네요 at the end when the noun ends with a consonant.


Noun ends with consonant +이네요.

Noun ends with vowel +네요.

Let's see some examples to understand the grammar pattern:-

  • That flower arrangement is beautiful.
    저 꽃꽂이 예쁘네요.
