These Korean grammar points are focused on plans and intentions

1)~(으)ㄹ 까 하다: (Uncertain plan) This grammar point shows that the speaker is still wondering if you will do the action or not. So the decision has not been made yet. Note: ~(으)ㄹ까 모르다 and ~(으)ㄹ까 만까하다 ate the same grammar point and mean the same thing.

2) ~(으)려던 참이다: (You were about to do something) showing that something moved you away from previous action. This grammar point usual comes with “마침” “안 그래도”. “마침” “안 그래도” place emphasis or coincidence on the fact that you moved to do something else. It can be positive and negative.

안 그래도 병원에서 검사를 받아보려던 참이었어요.
3) ~(으)려다가: (Intended to do). This grammar point shows that you planned to do something but some thing happened so you were unable to do it.

4) ~(으)ㄹ 뻔하다: (Nearly happened/Nearly finished it). Something seemed to happen but in the end it didn’t happen. Or maybe you nearly finished something but in the end something prevented you from finishing it.
