Viewing the local antiquities

There are seven levels of formality in Korean 

though I didn't know that when I asked Kay "How do I say 'thank you'?"

"Kamsa hamnida"—which, I now understand, is conjugated with the sixth honorific, used commonly between strangers and to customers.

And there you have it.

How much distance to cover, to tutoyer a Korean whore.
