Verb + 오래 됐다
You can use this pattern to express that you haven’t done something for a long time. In English, we say something like it’s been ages since I last did something. You can also use intensifiers like 굉장히, 정말, 참, etc. Since we are talking about an action in the past, we attach –ㄴ or –은 to the verbs stem and add 지. Take note of the space between them.
