Korean Grammar = Hard!!

Descriptive verbs can be made in noun modifiers and describe the nouns directly. The verb acts as an adjective to modify a noun that must follow immediately.

The translation for descriptive verbs typically start with "to be..." This construction would remove that from the literal translation.
작다 (jakda) - to be small
작은 (jakeun) - [a] small [noun]

Descriptive Verb Stem + -(은)ㄴ [noun]

-은 (-eun) is attached to descriptive verb stems that end in consonants.
좋다 (johta) - to be good
좋 (joh) - verb stem
좋 + 은 = 좋은 (joheun)
좋은 [명사] - (a) good [noun]
좋은 사람 (joheun saram) - a good person

-ㄴ (-n) is attached to descriptive verb stems that end in vowels.
나쁘다 (nappeuda) - to be bad
나쁘 (nappeu) - verb stem
나쁘 + ㄴ = 나쁜 (nappeun)
나쁜 [명사] - (a) bad [noun]
나쁜 사람 (nappeun saram) - a bad person

Example Sentences
1.큰 사과 주세요. (keun sahwa juseyo)
Please give me a big apple.

2.이 사람이 바쁜 사람이에요. (i saram-i bappeun saram-ieyo.)
This person is a busy person.

3.이상한 질문이 있는데요. (isanghan jilmun-i itneundeyo.)
I have a strange question.

This noun modifier can be used with all politeness levels because another verb must follow, and that verb indicates the politeness level.
