  •  Express sequential events that the 2nd event occurs after the completion of the 1st one. = and then, after V-ing
  •  In some cases, -나서 can be omitted without changing the meaning. The inclusion of -나서 simply clarifies the 1st event has completed. (e.g. 일하고 나서 쉬세요 = 일하고 쉬세요 = Please take a rest after finishing work)
  • If the subject of the motion and state verbs such as (가다, 오다, 올라가다, 내려가다, 일어나다, 앉다, 눕다 = to lie down, 만나다) are the same in the both clauses, -/어서 is used in placed of - and - 나서. (E.g #5, 6)
