Shouldn't the 번역 be "PLEASE don't be sad."?

You are right. "Please" should be part of the answer. Duolingo needs to fix this. At least add "please" as an alternative answer. ~ 마십시오 is honorific, thus POLITE.

Duolingo, please accept an answer with "please". "Please" is built into this honorific imperative. I cannot imagine saying ~ 마십시오 to my school principal without being VERY POLITE and deferential.

this should be sorted... saying please isn't wrong, it's being respectful and is a part of this answer!

All these comments, but Duolingo still (6/5/2018) has not fixed its mistake in rejecting the translation "please."

Isn't 십시오 old Korean? It's used in historical dramas and I doubt people still use it. Shouldn't it be like 슬퍼하지 마세요 or smth?

십시오 is polite+formal, same speech level as ㅂ니다 / 습니다

세요 is polite+informal

And also,

Old Korean ≠ Korean used in historical dramas

Historical dramas uses Modern Korean but uses obsolete forms of speech levels. If Korean historical drama used Old Korean, then a modern Korean speaker wouldn't even understand a thing, just like how a modern English speaker wouldn't understand Old English.

'Sip si yo' is both used to represent pleading and also an imperative, that is a command. (Pardon the konglish. My korean keyboard just went missing)
