I have learned 2 ways to express future and learned another way. This one is called immediate future, performed by attaching -(으)ㄹ 께요 (eu/lkkeyo) to plain base of a processive verbs only (one that can take direct objects). The verb ending ㄹ께요 (lkkeyo) is added to vowel ending verb while for consonant ending verb 을께요 (eulkeyo) is added:
- 쓸께요 (Sseulkkeyo) – will write
- 할께요 (halkkeyo) – will do
- 읽을께요 (ilkeulkkeyo) – will read
- 앉을께요 (anjeulkkeyo) – will sit
Immediate future when used is always on a first person basis , the speaker is doing the action. Below are some examples of its use:
- 에레베이터 앞에서 기다리고 있을께요 (Elevetor apeso kidarigo isseulkkeyo) I will be waiting for you in fron tof the elevator.
- 내일 갈께요 (Naeil kalkkeyo) I will go tomorrow.
Statements in this style gives assurance or certainty that the action will be performed. Using this style normally denotes a promise-like future that is within the control of the speaker.
