When you’re reading documents or stories, you might have noticed 하여 being used and wonder, hold on…. what’s this, I’ve never learned this before? [That was me]

Actually 하여 is super easy - it’s actually the shortened version of 하여서…. which is the formal, written version of 해서. This is used when connecting two clauses or verbs together (where the first verb is a 하다 verb). When the verb is not a 하다 verb it follows the regular Verb + -아/어/여서 rule (I promise this isn’t confusing - read on)

Verb + -// rule revision

There are a number of uses for this but here are the main ones:

  • Connecting two clauses or verbs that occur in a particular time order or sequence - one after the other (e.g. Event 1 happens AND THEN Event 2 happens. Event 2 cannot happen without Event 1 having taken place). The two clauses or verbs must be related to each other. Loosely translated to ‘and’ or 'and then’ e.g. 고기를 사서 요리했어요 - I bought meat and then cooked it
  • Used to provide a reason for something (e.g. Clause 1 is the reason for Clause 2). Loosely translated to 'because of’ or 'so that’ and is similar to -기 때문에 e.g. 사진을 많이 봐서 어떤 앨범 버전을 살지 정했어요 - I’ve decided which album to buy because I looked at a lot of pictures

When looking at 하다 verbs, people often drop the -서 and it means the same thing…. so often so 해서 ends up being left as 해, which when written = 하여

Sample sentences

  • 샤워하여 전화를 안 받았어요 - I didn’t answer your phone call because I was having a shower - (This is the same as 샤워해서 전화를 안 받았어요)
  • 일하여 Epik High 콘서트를 볼 수 없었어요 - I couldn’t go to the Epik High concert because I was working - (This is the same as 일해서 Epik High 콘서트를 볼 수 없었어요)

People don’t actually use 하여 or 하여서 in speaking but you will still see it written in literary text like novels and poems and also in official documentation. So don’t worry about it too much

TL;DR - here’s a summary:

하여 = 하여서 = 해(서)
