Korean Conjunction – 서 is used when a subject performs two actions one after the other. It signifies that the second action occurs in connection with the first, but follows after it in time sequence. For Korean Verbs – 만나다, 사다, 샤워하다 and 자다, by adding appropriate Korean Informal Polite Sentence Endings and Korean Past Tense it will become 만났어요, 샀어요,  샤워했어요 and 잤어요 which are commonly used in everyday life (view Korean Sentence Ending Form).
