"Don't be sad."

Translation:슬퍼하지 마십시오.

October 8, 2017



Why not 슬퍼하지 마세요?


Both work. 마십시오 is formal and 마세요 is polite.


슬퍼하지마 No No No ~


혼자가 아냐 노노노 ~


언제나나나 내게~ 항상 빛이 되준 그대~~


SNSD! Mmm I forgot the song title


It's Apink, and the song's name is NoNoNo ^^


"슬퍼하지 마세요"는 맞습니까?


Does this have a connotation of "Don't act sad?"


Good question. I will try to discover and reply back here.


슬퍼하지마세요 should be a valid answer


Can someone break this down for me? I dont understand it


What's the difference between 슬퍼하지 마십시오 and 슬퍼하지 마세요? Is the difference similar to 슬퍼합니다 vs 슬퍼해요?


Yes, you are exactly right. The <sub>읍시오/</sub>ㅂ니다 ending is the most formal speech pattern commonly in use. It is more commonly used by men, as that is the standard in the military, and they are all required to serve. There are actually 7 different speech levels, but conversation is usually in one of three:

해요체--the style of choice in most normal, everyday situations where politeness is expected. Common Korean phrases like “안녕하세요?” (how are you?) and “고마워요” (thank you) belong in this category. Regardless of the relative rank (higher, lower, or the same level) of the addressee, 해요체 can be used when speaking respectfully or politely

합쇼체--very respectful, polite form of formal speech used to speak to strangers or to elders. It’s used in the service industry to speak to customers, and in business settings for presentations, or to speak to people like the CEO of a company or president of a nation. It’s also used by anchormen during a newscast.

해체 is informal, casual speech with no added degree of respect or politeness-- “반말” (low form) and what Korean people use when they speak casually to each other. It’s used between close friends and family, by adults to speak to children or minors, between children, and also by adults to speak to old friends.

아무말도 하지 않는거야 나에게 말을 해줘~ 너에게 무슨일이 생긴건지 속시원히 말을 해줘 이세상 모두가 변한다고 해도 나는 너를 사랑해 너에게 나를 준 걸 후회는 안해 이대로 함께 있을께

사랑할 수 있을때 사랑해야 해 서로 후회하지 않도록 너의 곁에는 내가 있잖아 너를 지킬테니까 용서할 수 있을때 용서해야 해 가슴이 아프지 않도록 차라리 그것이 속편한거야 이젠 슬퍼하지마

(다시 한 번)

이세상에 여자는 너 하나뿐인데 슬퍼하면 나는 어떡해 네가 힘이들면 내게로 와 내가 널 책임지겠어
