주말 – weekend, the end of a week

~에 – particle meaning during, on, at, in etc.

봐 – verb meaning to see or to meet (e.g. to meet a person for a purpose)   

Casual – 주말에 봐.

Semi-polite – 주말에 봐요. 

Polite – 주말에 뵙겠습니다. 

>>”봐” is a casual form of the verb “보다” which means to meet or see. The polite form of using the verb and telling someone that you will meet them later is “뵙겠습니다.”

>>Another way to tell someone that you’ll see them this weekend is by using the verb “만나” which also means to meet. Even for this verb, you would use the same polite form “뵙겠습니다.”

e.g. 주말에 만나 (casual), 주말에 만나요 (semi-polite), 주말에 (만나) 뵙겠습니다 (polite)
