Pronouns and related references can be confusing. But forming verbs in Korean has been for me the most difficult part of learning. Just discovered this website. And it's super useful:

Enter the infinitive, and it renders every conjugation. Still have to memorize the rules and understand the tense meanings, but going through many examples helps that process.

It's weakness is that it simply drops the ending and changes it. It does not know the verbs. For example, if you put in 하하하하하하다, it will say that the yo form is 하하하하하하해요.

It'd be more useful if it had a dictionary with it so you knew if the verb you put in was really a verb and not some made up bs.

That said, it was useful when I was taking classes.

It does a great job of correctly conjugating the irregular verbs.

Apparently on Dec. 4, 2009 I found the only bug ever up that point in time: the verb 굽다 is both regular and irregular

굽다 to roast is irregular (구운)
굽다 to bend is not irregular. (굽은)

Dan (the developer of dongsa.net) fixed this so that now it tells you.

His tool is amazing.
