Abstract: In this paper I will show some evidence for the existence of attributive adjectives. In section 1, I will give a short overview of the properties of Korean adjectives which led some linguists to the idea that Korean adjectives in general are reduced relative clauses. In section 2, I will show some purely attributive adjectives in Korean. In section 3. I will present Cinque‟s proposal for the two origins of adjectives in the extended nominal projection. Following this, I will give evidence that Korean adjectives can also have non-intersective meanings, thus qualifying as purely attributive. The final section will also show some adjectives that cannot be analyzed as reduced relative clauses but seem to be purely attributive adjectives.
