Want to sound more fluent in Korean? The trick is, if you know how to address people properly, your Korean will sound not only much more fluent but also more polite as well than just calling or addressing people by their names.

In this episode of Ask Hyojin, Hyunwoo and Hyojin explain how to address people in Korean.

Since there are many different ways to address people depending on the age difference between you and them, their gender, and/or how close you two are, we separated this video into two parts. In the first part, we are going to explain how to address your friends or someone you know in Korean. In the second part of the video, we will be introducing some terms that you can use to address strangers.

When people say something unnaturally in Korea, often times, that's because people try to translate what they would say in their languages directly to Korean.

For the same reason when many people translate, for example, "This place is busy," or "This restaurant is busy." from English to Korean, it results in a very unnatural Korean sentence. "

In this video, Kyung-hwa and Hyojin tell you how NOT to say "This place is busy!" in Korean and, of course, explain how to say it properly as well.

In this video series "How NOT To Say...," we tell you how to say the expressions or phrases you have learned, in the more natural way.
