How about "Ms. Garam, who is over there?"

I think that should be correct as well.

Wouldn't that be 저기?

Yeah i answer that

This was also my answer, and it is technically more correct given the addition of 씨 in the Korean sentence. Both should be acceptable, but it's odd that the technically more correct one is unacceptable.

Or maybe "...who is in there?"

Oh no! It's Ms. Garam again! (안돼! 가람씨 다시에요!)

"Ms. Garam, who is there?" Does not work.

What's the difference between 님 and 씨?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ginryuu

님 is much more formal, and is more commonly used with titles rather than names. 선생님 (teacher), 회장님 (chairman), 하나님 (God). It can be used with names, but usually after someone's full name and is extremely praising. On the internet, kids will address people with 님 just by itself if they wanna be formal but that individual is anonymous or whatever.

You'll mostly see 씨 at the end of names. It's formal, not super formal but not casual. It's how you'd address someone you're not close to, but who's on the same 'level' as you or below, socially.

Societal norms are changing super quickly in Korea and a lot of lines are being blurred, but this is a general consensus I'd say.

거기에

I guess it's like (at) there.

Garam, who is (at) there? .......... Maybe Mr. Garam is in another room, and I heard some noise.

Garam, quién está allá?

Garam, who is there?
