Did you know Korean has a bunch of ways to say goodbye?

These are the formal ways to say goodbye and what makes them different:

안녕히가세요

(an-nyeong-hi-KA-se-yo)
>>>>> This literally means: Please GO well :) <<<<<
가다 means "to go" (가자, 가지마, etc)
so 가세요 means "please go"

Say it when: You stay, they GO.

안녕히계세요

(an-nyeong-hi-KYE-se-yo)
>>>>> This literally means: Please STAY well :) <<<<<
계세요 is the polite way to stay "to be"
so this means "please remain/stay well"

Say it when: You go, they STAY.

Informal ways:

바이바이 (ba-i-ba-i) Bye-Bye!

잘가! (jal-ga) Go well :D

내일봐! (nae-il bwa) See you tomorrow!

@LisaMarissa reminded me of this phrase: 또 봐! - See you again!
