I'm studying Korean language by a book about korean radio news.

I ran into this sentence:

공영개발방식으로 짓게 신도시의

...of the new city **is a promising ** being built followed by public development policy ...

According to my electric dictionary,



Both of them mean 'there is a promising ...'.

The word of '될' is not in the indexes.

Something is omitted in this sentence?

  • 되다 (which primarily means "to become," but with -게, it can mean "to reach a certain situation or state") + -ㄹ (which ends an adnominal phrase/clause and refers to a plan in your example) = 될.

It’s “되” + “ㄹ”. In any verb that uses together with “을/ㄹ” is actually showing “plan”, “arrangement”, or “future tense”.

  • 개발될 신도시 = city that is going develop
  • 성공될 사람 = will become a successful person

Based on these two examples, it means that it’s a plan or future tense.

  • 2
    Hmm, 개발될 is fine but I don't think anyone says 성공될 - people will say 성공할.
