    You need to go to "Answers" section if you have any questions. Just so you know. :)

     

    If 하지 말라고 is used in its own, it means "I said 'Don't do it'." You can also use the phrase when somebody really irritates you. It's a colloquial expression.

    i.e. 아참, 하지 말라고! Darn it, I told you not to do it! or Darn it, don't do it!

     

    You can also use it within a sentence, ~하지 말라고 (하다). That means, "Tell (someone) not to do ~."

    i.e. 친구에게 공부하지 말라고 했다. I told my friend not to study.

    Here it is!

    main verb

    to not do something

     Indirect speech for imperatives

     (to tell somebody not to do..)

    하다(to do)

    Verb stem + 지 말다

     Verb stem + (으)라고 + (하다/말하다)

     하(verb stem) + 지 말다

     = 하지 말다 = to not do something

     

    하지 말(verb stem) + 라고 (말하다/하다)

    = 하지 말라고 ((말)했잖아)

    = I told you not to do it

     그걸 먹지 말라고 (했잖아) = I told you not to eat it.

     가지 말라고 (했잖아) = I told you not to go.
