The purpose of this study is to compare the use of Korean honorifics between Korean students and Chinese students in Korea in order to find out why there are similarities and differences.To do this, a survey was conducted with questions about the terms of address, the greeting expression, and the honorific system of hearer. Social variables were limited to [intimacy], [senior], and [age]. As a result, Korean students were found to be affected by the variables in the order of intimacy, senior, and age. This answer had some similarities and differences with the answer of the Chinese students in Korea. While the cause of similarities could be found in the Korean linguistic culture, the differences were affected by the Chinese linguistic culture. Moreover, unlike the use of the same honorifics between the students of same nationality, the results of the survey have shown that two groups of students all used the ‘haeyo’ form more than the ‘hae’ form. This can be interpreted that the Korean linguistic culture to respect one another has affected the result in a linguistic culture perspective, while in the strategic perspective it may be the influence of face work technique.
