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:

    I have a question… When you say goodbye to someone by text which one would you use?

    • Tạ Thu

      I think it depents on who say goodbye first. If you say first, you use “안녕히계세요”. If you say goodbye after the other, you use “안녕히가세요”

    • Kody Pailin

      For me, it was easy to get used to experimenting with the keyboard functions! You’ll definitely get the hang of it soon!

      If u are on a touchscreen, you can have as many languages as u want from the keyboard settings. If ur on a laptop, i recommend u buying ‘korean keyboard stickers’ that would be tiny korean letter stickers u can paste on your keyboard buttons alongside english letters, then u can change your keyboard language from the settings and bam! u have a korean keyboard!

    Hahaha you guys are so nice explaining these. I always rather say “mkase” than “terima kasih” in Indonesian. Because everyone would be so surprised if you say “terima kasih” clearly.
