Korean

Pronoun

당신 (dangsin, hanja 當身, McCune-Reischauer tangshin)

  1. second person singular plain (non-polite) pronoun; you

Usage notes

The second person singular pronouns are rarely used in Korean. Using 당신 (dangsin) is usually considered insulting. 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?” (literally, “Teacher, are (you) at peace?”)

For friends, it is more common to use the person's name.
