Is -겠 more commonly used here? So I saw a sentence which was “가겠다는 약속을 하고 말았어요.” and was translated to “I ended up promising to go.” Is it more natural to use 겠 when using 다는 to describe a noun? Could you say “갈 거라는 약속” instead? What would be the difference? So in the end what would be the difference between “하겠다고...” and “할 거라고”

가겠다는 약속 is the promise based on the speaker's own volition 갈 거라는 약속 is the promise based on the speaker's experience. For 겠다 and -을 것이다, refer to https://www.italki.com/question/437227
