~(으)ㄹ까 하다

I'm thinking about...


Do you have an idea that is still taking shape in your mind? This is a good way to express such ideas without completely committing to them. “I’m thinking about…”

Detailed Explanation

  • Indicates a vague intention or rough plan that can yet be changed.
  • Equivalent to "I'm thinking about..." or "I had been thinking about..."
  • Cannot be used in the future tense.


  • ONLY: use with declarative sentences
  • NO: interrogative, propositional, imperative sentences
