Meeting in Korean

If someone asked you in Korean about your plans for the weekend, would you understand? What’s the Korean expression for “later on” or the word for “now”? If you want to organise a meeting in Korean with family, friends or colleagues, these are useful things to know.

The Rocket Korean team has created this free audio lesson so you know the questions to ask, and some different ways to reply. That way you can be sure everyone will arrive on the same day at the same time!

You’ll learn lots of useful Korean vocabulary that you can use in all kinds of Korean conversations. Take your time, listen carefully to the Korean pronunciation, and practice saying the words and phrases aloud. Let’s go!

How to pronounce phrases for meeting in Korean

Before we jump into scheduling some social gatherings in Korean, here are a few tips… Although younger Koreans are very westernized, remember to use correct formal expressions when talking to older Korean people. Also, Koreans can be quite sensitive to appearance. Appropriate dress is very important.

In Korea, going out often means hanging out at various types of bang (lit: room) - businesses that offer inexpensive entertainment options. Here are some of them:

A very popular venue for business and personal meetings where non-alcoholic beverages are served.

A business divided into small rooms (usually for groups of up to 12 people) with karaoke machines, where people get together and sing along to their choice of songs.

Special facilities in a public bath for people to read and relax – most open 24 hours.

The Korean equivalent of an internet cafe – a big room, dark, and crowded – attracting computer game players.


Now, let’s have a look at some phrases that are useful to know when inviting someone out…

Here are some more time-related words and phrases for you…

Suppose your friend is free tonight. You might like to ask if he/she wants to join you for a coffee, cupee, or a meal, bab. Here are some phrases you could use…

Arranging to meet

You’ll find that Koreans don’t tend to meet at each other’s home before they go out. The most common place to meet is near a subway station, in front of a department store, or the café or bang (room) they plan to go.
