Description: This study identifies the various levels of formality in the Korean, Spanish, and English language in order to develop a contrastive analysis of these formality features in each of the three languages based on regular symmetrical and asymmetrical oral discourse employed by native Korean speakers from different social status, and age range of a popular Korean TV series. This cross-linguistic analysis was carried out through a product-oriented research, comparing and contrasting these languages in terms of formality and seeking possible ways to render all the levels of formality and honorifics found in the Korean language. This project is aimed at illustrating the losses that emerge in the translation process, which are caused by the sociocultural and linguistic differences inherent in each language with a view to proposing strategies that can be taken into consideration at the moment of translating Korean levels of formality into English and Spanish.
