    Ok, I found that :
    On the page, there's this sentence : "이제 우리 서로 반말을 쓰죠."
    ("We will use 'banmal' from now, ok?")

    In general someone will ask you to use their first name, or you can say "Do you mind if I call you xxxx".

    Again, not 100% sure (since I'm not a native)

    반말해도 돼요? Can I/we use "banmal"?

    반말해도 될까요? It would be ok to use "banmal"?

    반말로 할까요? Should we talk in "banmal"? You don't want talk in "banmal"?

    반말로 하는 게 어덜까요? What about talking in "banmal"?
