How to use adjectives in Korean?

I often get confused by Korean adjectives. How do you use them? Do you just put them in front of the word like in English?

    Yes. When it comes to modifying use, we must put Adjectives in front of the Noun.

    예쁜 아기/귀여운 친구/잘생긴 남자/아픈 사람/슬픈 일/

    예쁘게 크는 아기/귀엽게 생긴 친구/잘생겨 보이는 남자/아픈 것 같은 사람/슬프게 느껴지는 일

    예쁘고 귀엽고 깜짝하고 사랑스럽고 안아주고 싶은 아기.

    But we have another usage of adjectives according to the predicative use.

    그 여자가 참 예쁘다.
    그 남자가 참 잘 생겼다.
    그녀의 얼굴은 참으로 아름다웠다.
