Don’t do it. / -지 마세요

안녕하세요. Welcome to the last lesson in Level 2!!! You’re amazing for having made it so far and keeping up with us! Hope you will continue enjoying learning with us in the future! In this lesson, we are introducing how to tell someone to stop doing something or not to do something.

Through some of our previous lessons, we learned how to tell or ask someone to do something. In this lesson, we will look at how to tell someone not to do something or to stop doing something.

Since you already know how to use -(으)세요 to tell someone to do something, you just have to know one more verb here:


말다 [mal-da] = to quit doing, to not do, to stop doing


When you use the -(으)세요 ending for this word, it becomes 마세요 [ma-se-yo] but, when you want to combine 마세요 with other verbs and say “don’t do” something, you need to add the suffix -지 [-ji] after the verb stem.


Verb stem + -지 마세요 [-ji ma-se-yo]


Examples:

가지 마세요. [ga-ji ma-se-yo.]

= Don’t go.


아직 가지 마세요. [a-jik ga-ji ma-se-yo.]

= Don’t go yet.


하지 마세요. [ha-ji ma-se-yo.]

= Don’t do it.

= Drop it.

= Stop it.

= Forget about it.


사지 마세요. [sa-ji ma-se-yo.]

= Don’t buy it.


Sample sentences.

1. 만지지 마세요. [man-ji-ji ma-se-yo.]

= Don’t touch it.


2. 웃지 마세요. [ut-ji ma-se-yo.]

= Don’t laugh.


3. 걱정하지 마세요. [geok-jeong-ha-ji ma-se-yo.]

= Don’t worry.


4. 경은 씨한테 말하지 마세요. [gyeong-eun ssi-han-te ma-ra-ji ma-se-yo.]

= Please don’t tell 경은 (about it).


5. 아직 보내지 마세요. 아직 다 안 썼어요. [a-jik bo-nae-ji ma-se-yo. a-jik da an sseo-sseo-yo.]

= Don’t send it yet. I haven’t finished writing it.
