We use this grammatical structure (ㄹ/을래) to convey one's desired intention for the future. It does not express one's actual intention, but one's desired intention. We often translate it as “want to (verb).” We use this construction with action verbs.
This grammatical construction is in the intimate politeness level. The standard politeness level adds the politeness particle -요 (ㄹ/을래요). We use this structure in colloquial situations. There is no formal politeness conjugation.
