This paper aims to discuss how Korean pedagogical grammar should be written in terms of organisation and description of content. The arguments in this paper will be presented in practical and empirical manners rather than theoretical ones. The problematic questions and empirical issues presented arose while the author was writing a pedagogical grammar book entitled ‘Korean: A Comprehensive Grammar’, published by Routledge in early 2011. The point about pedagogical grammar is that it is not the same as linguistic grammar because they have different functions and uses. Pedagogical grammar typically requires rules that are definite, coherent, consistent,non-technical,cumulative and heuristic. Actual problems and topics at issue are discussed in the paper and the book’s table of contents is presented at the end of the paper.
