Korean culture & Tip

The first thing most Koreans say when answering the phone is Yeoboseyo which is the way one would greet the other person on the phone. Yeoboseyo has the same meaning as “Hello” in English, Hola in Spanish, Mosi mosi in Japanese, and Wei in Chinese, etc. When you are talking to someone older than you on the phone, it is considered good manners to wait until the other person has hung up first.
