About the letter (G/k) ㄱ

Things are alittle bit complicated here ><" please help .
the letter ㄱ G/K , how can i know when should i pronounce it G or K ? And does matter if i said kwangjang instead of gwangjang ?
In the word 가세요 "go" , why do they pronounce the letter G (ㄱ) like a "k" while there is another K letter in hangul (ㅋ) ??

    actually ㄱ sounds a little different from the both g or k. easily u can think of ㄱ as the middle of the g and k. but it sounds closer to k when it comes to the begining of the word like 광장.
