이렇게/저렇게/그렇게 This/that/so + adverb/adjective
August 25, 2009 by tailieutienghan
이렇게/저렇게/그렇게 (ireoke/jeoreoke/geureoke) originally means “like this/like that/like it.” However, when we use it before other adverbs or adjectives, it emphasizes the words. Instead of “like this/like that/like it,” it's translated as “this + adverb/adjective,” as in the example 이렇게 많이 (ireoke mani) which means “this many” or “this much.”
