(Korean name: 사이 )

While often used with words of time, this character itself usually means the space between two things. Similar to “中”,“間” also acts as a grammatical principle in Korean sentences as well. It is used to indicate that one does something “amongst” (between) things/people. For example:

교師는 수업재료를 學生들 間에 나누었다 = The teacher distributed the class materials amongst the students
