    Sorry- I didn't see the title. It's hard to explain it simply because it has more than one use- perfect forms, passives and adjectives. I have no knowledge of Korean, so I don't know what their problems might be. Does Korean have tenses?

    You can probably explain it by what it does. It is a verb form that is used:

    1. to form the passive voice (with to be)
    2. to form perfect tenses (with have/has/had)
    3. as an adjective

    :wink:
