미안합니다 VS 실례합니다
[[sandy0811]] 5
Hope someone could help me.

What is the difference between 실례합니다 and 미안합니다 ?
Both mean "sorry"...isn't it?

Thx

    @sandy0811 - 실례합니다 is more like "Excuse me", where as 미안합니다 means "I'm sorry".

    If I want to squeeze between two people on the bus, I would say "실례합니다". 미안합니다 and 죄송합니다 have similar meanings, with 죄송합니다 being more formal and polite.
