Hello in other Situations in Korea

Recently I've been learning about several other methods for greeting in Korea. Often times people will say "did you eat" after a meal but it isn't actually a question, similar to "how's it going". They really just meet to say hi. But usually the response is that you did eat.

To say this in Korean it's pronouced "Bab mugeo seo" or "bap meuku seo" its a bit difficult to write but the korean spelling is 밥먹었어.

This actually means did you eat rice?
