Usage Notes[edit]

  • It is quite easy to confuse 가져오다 with 가져가다, because both of them can be translated as “bring”. However, the key difference between them is that they indicate the point of reference of the acting agent of the sentence to the speaker. In other words, the difference is whether the acting agent is “going to” or “coming to” the speaker.[1]
