Korean Verb List

Before we look at this list of Korean verbs, it is important to note that some of these are technically adjectives. In Korean, the base form of adjectives are written, just like verbs, in the infinitive form with the ending 다. For example, 사다 is the adjective ‘cheap’ in the infinitive form (to be cheap). Some Korean textbooks refer to adjectives in the base form as ‘descriptive verbs’.

While you are learning Korean verbs it is important to remember which ones are adjectives because adjectives and verbs use different particles and some Korean verb conjugations are not possible with these ‘descriptive verbs’. You can’t, for example, use the imperative form ~으세요 with these descriptive verbs or conjugate them with ~고 싶어요 (want).

In the list of Korean verbs below the descriptive verbs have been marked with (adj).
