how can we separate between group 1 verbs and group 2 verbs .
うつる and ぶむふ
Love that video.
Tip number one: don’t call them group 1 and group 2.
Call them ichidan and godan, or る-verbs and う-verbs, or anything where the name itself helps you with how you can distinguish them.
That article should help. Generally, if a verb ends an いる or える sound (meaning consonant pairs with い and え sounds such as きる or ける also work) it is a る/ichidan verb. Otherwise it is an う/godan verb. There are a few exceptions such as 入る, 帰る, 切る but those are pretty rare. The Tae Kim page has a list at the bottom.
