-스럽다

 

I lookㄷㅇ up the ending -스럽다 attached to nouns and it means "is like, gives the impression of, seems", but I don't really get it.

What is the different between:

비밀히
비밀스럽게

조심히
조심스럽게


감사합니다!

    스럽다 can be added to nouns to make that a noun an adjective. You can also add ~게 to the ~스럽 to make 스럽게 which turns the adjective into an adverb.
    That's all that I know about -스럽다, but don't understand different between: 비밀히 - 비밀스럽게; 조심히 - 조심스럽게...
