Usage notes[edit]

  • The second person singular pronouns are rarely used in public Korean. Using 당신 (dangsin) to a stranger is usually considered impolite; it is more commonly used between mature married couples. Instead, the person's title is often used, or 선생 (seonsaengnim, “(respectable) teacher”) if the person's title is unknown, for strangers or superiors:
선생님, 안녕하세요?
Seonsaengnim, annyeonghaseyo?
How are you, sir?/Hello, sir.
