    Can anyone tell me how to say "nice to meet you"? I'd like to know both how to write it in Korean letters and a transcription.

    Many thanks in advance!
    Best regards,

    For a long time, I've known 만나서 반갑습니다 (or just 반갑습니다 for short), but I've known it to be formal.

    What about for a very casual situation when meeting someone younger than you?

    Thank you!

    Informal, and to someone who is younger than you. : 만나서 반가워.
    But I've never said like 만나서 반가워 when I met someone for the first time, even though they looked obviously younger than I.
    I recommend "만나서 반갑습니다." :)

    When I meet with someone who is much younger than me(i.e. a little kid), 만나서 반가워 can be used to express a sense of closeness.
