How To Say I Miss You in Korean


I miss you


The basic form of I miss you in Korean is 보고싶다. Actually, What 보고 싶다 really means is ‘I want to see you’.  ‘miss someone or something’ is 그립다 in Korean. However, native Koreans prefer to say ‘보고싶다’ which means ‘I want/wish to see you’. 그립다 sounds very poetic… veeeeeeerrrry poetic. I don’t even remember the last time when I actually heard it in person.

You Should Know This

You must use the subject makers ‘이/가’ with 보고싶다 especially when you say you miss someone. When you say it to a person who you are talking to at the moment, dropping a subject and on object sounds much more nature.

Another Use of 보고싶다

I just taught you that 보고싶다 literally means ‘I want to see’ or ‘I wish to see’. You can use it for other things too like I want to watch a movie, I want to see Han river. In this case, object markers are much suitable!

I Miss (Moment) in Korean

However, you have to use ‘그리워요’. The basic form of 그리워요 is 그립다. when you want to say you miss some moment in your life. Of course, it would be a bit weird if you say ‘I want to see that moment’. It still sounds a bit poetic.
