Among, Between / 사이에, 사이에서, 중에, 중에서

In this lesson, we look at how to say “among” or “between” in Korean. These words can be translated into many expressions in Korean, so be sure to listen carefully and practice by making sample sentences of your own in the comments!

In this lesson, let us look at how to say “among” or “between” in Korean by using 중에서, 사이에서, or 사이에. 


Expression #1 - 중에서

중 can be written using a Chinese character (中) and it basically means “center” or “middle.” 에서 is a way to mark a location. So 중에서 literally means “in the middle.”


Other words that have the letter “중 (中)” are:

중학교 = 중 (middle) + 학교 (school) = middle school

중식 = 중 (middle) + 식 (eat) = formal name for “lunch”

회의중 = 회의 (meeting, conference) + 중 (middle) = meeting in process

공사중 = 공사 (construction) + 중 (middle) = under construction


중에서 means “among” or “between” but it can only be used when you are listing a few options to choose from. You can NOT say 중에서 to describe a location and say something like “the house is located between the bank and the park.” In that case, you need to use a different expression (which will be introduced later in this lesson).


Expression #1 - 중에서 (you can drop the word 서 from 중에서 to make it shorter)

When you are choosing from a few options, you put 중에서 at the end of “A and B”.


Ex)

Between A and B 

= A하고 B 중에서 


Between this book and that book 

= 이 책하고 저 책 중에서 


Among these three things 

= 이 세 개 중에서 

 

Among ten people

= 열 명 중에서


Sample sentences

1. Please choose among these.

= 이 중에서 고르세요.


2. Please take one of these three. 

= 이 세 개 중에서 하나 가져가세요.


Expression #2 - 사이에서

When you are saying “among” in the sense of “popular among friends” or “famous among teenagers,” you use the expression “사이에서.” 사이 can refer to a relationship or the theoretical space between certain objects or people.


Ex)

Among friends

= 친구들 사이에서


Among his/her family members

= 가족들 사이에서


Sample sentences

1. He is popular among friends. 

= 친구들 사이에서 인기가 많아요.


2. This singer is popular among Koreans. 

= 이 가수는 한국인들 사이에서 인기가 많아요. 


3. Seokjin is popular among our listeners.

= 석진 씨는 청취자들 사이에서 인기가 많아요.


Expression #3 - 사이에

When you are referring to the actual physical space between two objects or two people, you can say “사이에.”


Sample sentences

1. I am between the bank and the park. 

= 은행하고 공원 사이에 있어요. 


2. The pharmacy is between the school and the police station. 

= 약국은 학교하고 경찰서 사이에 있어요. 


Q: What’s the difference between 에 and 에서? 

A: 에 is for status or location, and 에서 is for action.
