Korean Grammar: I thought so

동사/형용사 + 을 줄 몰랐다/알랐다 = I didn't know that would happen / I thought that would happen

Important Breakdown

동사/형용사 + = future tense
= a fact (marker has been dropped)
모르다/알다 + 었다 = something you didn't know/knew in the past

An awkward, but more direct translation that helps in some cases:
  • 난 너가 갈 줄 몰랐어요.        You were going is a fact I didn't know.
  • 난 너가 갈 줄 알았어요.        You were going is a fact I knew.
