V-(으)면서 grammar = 'while'/ 'and…too' ~ two actions occurs simultaneously

L1G20 V-()면서 grammar = 'while'/ 'and…too' ~ two actions occurs simultaneously

- The grammar indicates that two actions occur simultaneously = ‘while/and...too’ in English

The subjects of both clauses must be the same. If the subjects are different, V- 동안 grammar is used. (See example 6)

- Verb preceding -()면서 is always in present tense. This rule is also applied for the V-아/어서 grammar

- V-()면서 is different from V-(으)ㄴ 채로 grammar = "during V ...", which indicates an action occurring while maintaining the state of a situation.
