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 and 쉬다, by adding appropriate Korean Informal Polite Sentence Endings and Korean Past Tense it will become 만났어요, 샀어요 and 쉬었어요 which are commonly used in everyday life (view Korean Sentence Ending Form).
