When talking about things you like to do, it's worth bearing in mind that you don't do everything you like to do all the time - you do these things 'sometimes'.
Today we look at how to say 'sometimes I do this, sometimes I do that' in Korean.
When using the word 'sometimes' to illustrate the frequency of an action, normally 가끔 or 가끔씩 will suffice but when you want to say 'sometimes'/'other times' (particularly in comparison) then you should use the expression 어떨때.
어떨 때 means 'when what state will happen' so when more naturally translated it means 'in what kind of situation' or just 'when'.
어떨 때 영화 보고 싶어요?
=When do you feel like watching a movie?
Adding -는 can produce more of a comparison.
어떨 때는 혼자 있는 것이 좋은데, 어떨 때는 싫어요.
=Sometimes, I like being alone, but other times, I don’t like it.
어떨 때는 운동하는 게 재미있는데, 어떨 때는 운동하고 싶지 않을 때도 있어요.
=Sometimes, working out is fun, but other times, there are also times when I don’t feel like doing exercise.
