@tatsuca thank you. so it actually means going instead of go and be there though it has that nuance? i had the same problem with 来てる last time thinking it meant coming. but i was told it actually means come and be here rather than coming so i thought this applies to 行ってる too.
@changkh Yes.彼は来る is He comes. He will come and 彼は来ている。is like (He has come here) and he is here But this could, sometimes, mean He is on his way coming here. 彼は行く。He will go. and 彼は行っている。is he's left here and be there. But it could also mean "He is on his way" in some context.
@tatsuca yes, i know there are these two interpretations, coming/going and come/go and be here/there. but i was told if i want to say coming/going, it is better to use 向かってる to avoid confusion as 来てる・行ってる normally implies come/go and be here/there. is that correct?
