호칭 • 이름 부르기

Question today comes from Mark in Canada:
I heard Koreans do not call older people by their names. Then how do you address each other? How about in professional relationship such as colleagues or your clients?

We are having a Valentine-themed Workshop and "Ask a Korean" meetup today. In observance of this workshop, I thought you may be interested in one of many aspects of Korean dating culture: Sogaeting (소개팅).

Question today comes from Cris who asked about "소개팅."
I have the understanding that 소개팅 means something like introducing something in the form of "matchmaking". I heard my korean cousin saying it in a joking manner, but i wasn't sure what it meant.
