How to Say "Excuse Me" in Korean!
I'm always confused by how to say excuse me in Korean. I first learned to say "silehamnida," which is described in the first video on this post. But people look at me a little funny sometimes - and some of my friends told me that this is pretty polite and that there are more common ways to say this in everyday settings. So, I'm so happy that I found another video explaining two different scenarios in which you might say "excuse me" - both of which I've used A LOT. Asking people to move aside (crowded buses and subways!) - "chamsimanyo" - and getting a waiter's attention - "chogiyo". You have to watch this video. This guy Justin is HILARIOUS. He even cracks himself up, and the video person. I can't wait to see some of his other videos! The contrast between these two videos is pretty significant (that's an understatement!), but they are both useful. Enjoy!!

So here if you are walking through a crowd of people and you bump into someone it is ok to say excuse me. so if the same thing happens there would you apologize or say excuse me?
@nenegrint14 Actually my Korean friends pointed that most times people don't say anything, because people bump into each other a lot haha. But in some cases I have heard both excuse me or I'm sorry - apologies mostly if it was harder or something like that
