제 vs 전

Oggiedoggy

From Lesson 1.1 제 이름은 태우입니다. 전 부산에 삽니다. 수정씨는요? What is the difference?

Oggiedoggy

I found out already. 제 by itself is more like 'my' and goes with 제가 for I ---- both being polite 전 is 저 는 contracted together.

안녕하세요 Oggiedoggy 맞아요 :) That's right, 전 is a contraction of 저는, much like I am = I'm. I hope you're enjoying Korean! - Sujung
