    Using honorifics is they’re style, it’s normal lol

    Mostly all of them talk with honorifics even if you’re younger, and a foreigner. And I mention being a foreigner cuz some others can be the opposite, if you’re the same age, they can talk to you in banmal cuz they think you’re “western style” therefore it’s ok not to be that formal lol

    Just tell him something like “If that’s ok with you, we can talk in banmal” or “since we’re the same age, can we use banmal?” (make sure you’re actually the same age lol).
