Level 1 Lesson 3 / Good-bye, See you / 안녕히 가세요, 안녕히 계세요, 안녕

After listening to this lesson, you can say “Good-bye” or “See you” in Korean. In polite/formal Korean, there are two basic ways to say Good-bye.

One is when you are the one who is leaving. And the other is when you are the one who is staying.

If you are leaving, and the other person is (or the other people are) staying, you can say:
안녕히 계세요. [an-nyeong-hi gye-se-yo]

If you are staying, an the other person is (or the other people are) leaving, you can say:
안녕히 가세요. [an-nyeong-hi ga-se-yo]

    So when both of you are leaving and you’re going to say goodbye, is it 안녕히 계세요. [an-nyeong-hi gye-se-yo] or 안녕히 가세요. [an-nyeong-hi ga-se-yo]?

    • Arissa Cotton

      You say 안녕히 가세요 because no one is staying

    • Kenny Lau

      I don’t know if this would make it easier to understand.

      안녕히 계세요 literally means “please stay peacefully”.
      안녕히 가세요 literally means “please go peacefully”.

      So, in this situation you would say 안녕히 가세요 because you wish the other to go peacefully.

    It’s annyeonghi gyeseyo if both are leaving because nobody is staying, i was confused at first but I listened to it again and it clicked to me and I was like “AHH. I see now” so that might help you.

    안녱히 게세요 when I’m leaving and someone is staying
