need examples of WHAT is

In Korean, to say "there are" and "there is", you use the verb iss-eo-yo (있어요)

The stem of this verb is made of iss-, eo and the polite particle -yo, thus forming the ending -eoyo.

The oppposite of iss- is ops-, which literally means "there isn't" or "there aren't".

Chogi isseoyo means "it exists over there", "it's over there".
Isseoyo on its own can mean "I have", "he has".
Opseoyo means "I don't have", "I haven't got".
