Can anyone give me a comprehensive list of Korean (Hangul) Pronouns?  When I say comprehensive I mean comprehensive. I want I, We, You, You plural, Us, Them, He, She, It.  I want Polite, Casual, and Formal, forms of each; and poetic form if there exist any.  I also need Topic form (with un or nun), Subject form (ee/ga), Object form, and Passive form.  Anyone?

Korean Hangul Pronouns are as follows:

I (me) =  (jeo)  [formal/polite form, also called "humble"]

I (me) =  (na)   [informal]

You =   (neo)

My =   (je)  [formal]

My =   (nae) [informal]

Your =   (ne)  [informal]

I = 제가  [formal I & subject marker]

I = 내가  [I & subject marker]

You = 네가 [informal & subject marker]

He/Him =    (geu)

We/Us = 우리  (uri) [formal]

You (plural) = 너희  (neohui) 

Korean pronouns are complicated. Remember that the formal (humble) pronouns are used for those who are older than you or those with a higher social status. When in doubt, it is always best to use the formal pronoun to avoid accidentally insulting someone.
