I’m Sorry For in Korean
Warm Up Your Brain
You’ve learned there are 2 ways to say I’m sorry in Korean. Maybe you’ve heard it before from songs or TV shows. Write them on your mind and say it in 5 seconds! 5… 4… 1… lol
How To Say I’m Sorry To / For in Korean
I’m sorry to / I’m sorry for
Basic form : -서 미안하다
반말(informal non-honorific) form : -서 미안해 / 미안
Negative form with 해요 speech style : -서 안미안해요
To mention of a reason why you are sorry, you must use -서 conjugation. 서 conjugation describes a reason as ‘reason-서 result’. 니까 conjugation also describes a reason just like -서 conjugation. But you should never use 니까 for a reason why you are sorry.
미안해요 only means sorry to apologize. It really doesn’t mean ‘you feel bad about something’ in Korean.
Be Sorry To vs Be Sorry For
Korean language has only ‘서 미안해요’. However, -서 conjugation can be replaced to others based on tenses or moods, conditions. But mostly -서 미안해요 is most common and sounds always nice.

This Course Was $15
$15, maybe it’s nothing that you can earn after a couple of hours of labor. Or, maybe you have to work for full days to earn it only because of where you were born. And $15, It’s the average price of Korean textbooks. Life is unfair. But that’s why we can help each other, we are helping each other.
