I searched “Korean grammar” on Quora and found this page (What is the best textbook for Korean grammar?). Go read it.
From the page, I found these links:
외국인을 위한 한국어 문법1
외국인을 위한 한국어 문법2
which are the online version of probably the most complete and comprehensive Korean grammar books for foreigners out there, but they are completely in Korean *cringe. Actually, I find the online version very hard to read. If I want to use the books I probably will buy them in hard copy.
Gasp. Too expensive. I don’t think I will buy them.
Actually I don’t think I can make good use of them, because, I already own a copy of “외국어로서의 한국어 문법 사전” (Rp 389,880 on Yes24Indonesia) which is also written entirely in Korean and even after 2 years of learning Korean on my own, I can only read each sentence very slowly and I always doubt whether I understand it correctly. So understanding the grammar explanation in Korean is hard (for me), memorizing it is even harder. But it wasn’t a complete waste of money, because I read the book for its sample sentences. So I read the grammar explanation somewhere else, in a language I can understand better (Japanese) and then I find for more of the usage in the book.
If I’ll ever spend money on another grammar dictionary, I think I’ll get the Japanese translation of “외국인을 위한 한국어 문법 2” for ￥ 6,510 on Amazon Japan (the Japanese title is 標準韓国語文法辞典). But it’s also very expensive so… maybe later. Or maybe I don’t need it. I don’t know. 생각해 볼게요. (=I’ll think about it.) ###
