This is the first post using my phone. Lol, I’m testing this app that ive downloaded. I don’t think I can post those posts that contains lots of pics, so I will be using it to post short updates or random things.
Well, let’s start with this thing that has been bugging me – the difference btw these two korean expressions: 처음뵙겠습니다 and 만나서반갑습니다.
When I checked google translate, it gave me the meaning as “nice to meet you” for both expressions. I checked another book and it says that 처음뵙겠습니다 means “nice to meet you for the first time” while 만나서반갑습니다 is just “nice to meet you”.
So does that mean that if I meet someone for the first time I use 처음뵙겠습니다, and then for all subsequent meetings I can use 만나서반갑습니다 or the shorter form 반갑습니다 ?
Hmm…what I don’t understand is do I still need to say “nice to meet you” during the second, third, etc meeting? So when do I use both expressions then?
I’m really confused (-_-)
