From my own experience towards a Martial art's master from Busan. I was told to use 당신 towards people with more status. In Seoul some people don't care, but In Busan.. well, the master was confused, and said "no no no no" he grabbed my shirt with his punch and rised his right arm like he was about to punch me in the face. And said "Dangshin!!" So I understood it's not a way to approach someone ^^U

Foreigner. I've never heard a Korean say 당신 before. They either say 너 (informal) or say their name, even they're right in front of them. If you're talking to 서빈, you can say 서빈 씨 안 먹었죠. = You didn't eat, right?

If you want something for yelling out to someone, you would say 저기요!

In Korean dramas (mainly "Beautiful Mind"), I saw it being used during formal talks (two doctors talking to each other) and in discussions... But I assume I only noticed it being used in this specific show.

When addressing strangers 당신 is considered very rude, so you should avoid using it unless you're trying to pick up a fight.

It's really rude. It's considered too direct to say "당신" and you generally say the person's name instead.

So saying 당신 is rude? If you want to say a person's name, what should you add at the end? I haven't understood that yet (is it 씨?) sorry if my question isn't very clear I don't know how to explain it

씨 is something like Ms. Mr. Mrs.
