...견인해 갈 거예요.


There was a video on TTMIK talking about the word 견인 and they had this sentence:

보험 회사에 전화하면 견인해 갈 거예요. (the context of "car" was established previously)

I'm just interested in the last part: 견인해 갈 거예요

That's a compound verb meaning "will tow (away)", right? I know there are other examples of using 가다 and 오다 to mean "away" and "to".

Could it be something like : 우리 집에 견인해 올 거예요 meaning "will tow TO my house"?

And of course, the simple version is: 견인할 거예요 meaning "will tow".

    In Korean, a compound verb is formed by another action verb like '가다', '오다', like these, "들어가다, 들어오다, 내려가다, 내려오다, 올라가다, 올라오다."

    This form of verb is very similar to the phrasal verb(verb + adverb or preposition) or, a main verb + participle of another verb.

    to do something In a certain way or method.
    어떤 방식이나 방법으로 무엇을 하다.

    견인하다, 견인하여 오다, 견인해 오다. 견인하여 가다. 견인해 가다.
    데리다, 데리어 오다, 데려 오다, 데리어 가다, 데려 가다.

    In addition, Sometimes, according to the context, when the act or action of the two verbs have sequentially happened. you can use it with connection endings like '-고' or '-며'. Its meaning is a bit different from the compound verbs, though.
