네 vs 내 pronunciation

Do people pronounce "네" and "내" differently? Or are they always just inferred by context?
Thanks!

The distinction between /e/ and /ɛ/ is another decreasing element in the speech of some younger speakers, mostly in the area of Seoul, whereas in other dialectal areas the two vowels can be distinctly heard. For those speakers who do not make the difference, [e̞] seems to be the dominant form.

Just for reference, /e/ is the vowel in "네" and /ɛ/ is the vowel in "내". They sound roughly like English play and bet.

Especially among younger speakers, "니" often substitutes for "네" in order to prevent confusion. In informal contexts, you'll even see it written this way.

Since the difference is becoming increasing blurry with the younger generations, 네 is often pronounced as 니.

So... 네가 그린 기린 그림 (The giraffe drawing that you've drawn) will be pronounced as 니가 그린 기린 그림.

As a native speaker, of Seoulite dialect, I don't make the distinction.

I live in Seoul, in my twenties and everyone my age pronounces 네 as 니.

I have asked Korean friends my age about the difference between the sound of ㅔ and ㅐ in general and they told me to them there is no difference, so I don't sweat it.
I welcome corrections in any language, even English (if you find any mistakes).
