Hi A Lim,
Thanks for posting--you're doing a good job regarding the usage of goodbyes and the informal/polite forms! Keep up the good work, and please let us know if you have any inquiries!
Hi Dot Himes,
Thanks for posting, we're happy to hear that you enjoyed the vocabulary list.
As for (문장), it does mean 'sentence'. I think it was a typo that may need to be fixed. We'll get back to you on this, sorry for the confusion!
Thanks for posting. 잘 가요 is a informal formal way to say 'goodbye', it literally means 'go well, or go somewhere safely', so you can use this, no problem. If you are addressing someone your senior/higher position, you would say:
안녕히 가세요 (please leave safely--used when the other party is leaving)
안녕히 계세요 (please be safe--used when you are the one that is leaving)
Hope this was of help!
Hi KBT, Lucy,
Thanks for posting. Lucy provided a great explanation--또(again) 봐요(see you/meet you), so yes, it has similar meaning to 'au revoir'.
Thanks for posting. All the phrases listed above are ways to say goodbye. If you want to simply say goodbye,
Would be the most simplest. This is an informal phrase however. If you want to make it formal, use:
안녕히 가세요 (if you are the one who is sending someone off)
안녕히 계세요 (if you are the one that is leaving)
Leave a comment...what is 문장
I use "잘 가요" and, when being more informal, "안녕". Although not on the list, I also use "안녕히 가/계세요" if I'm being formal and staying/leaving respectively (I do hope that usage is correct).
Thank you for posting these! I think I've heard all of them at one time or another on K dramas. Interesting to hear them pronounced by both male and female voices.
Had to look up "Munjang" (does it mean "sentence" in this circumstance?) since it is written in parentheses after several expressions.
