Must to Express Truth

Post by Jason M. Ham »

Must can also be used to say we think something is true.
That guy is eating kimchi, wearing a Park Chan Ho jersey, and he looks Asian. He must be Korean.
I am pretty certain that he is Korean. :)

We can use Must instead of Have to sometimes.
When you go to Jamsil next week, you really must(have to) visit Lotte world.
But we use Must to talk about the present or future but not the past.
I had to get up early yesterday.(not I must)
