What do 질 and 불 mean as affixes?
Hi, currently learning nouns and I have an exercise in this workbook that makes me identify the prefix / suffix and the meaning. I don't have any answer key for it and I am not sure. 감사합니다!

질 is native Korean suffix. It means "the repeated act of something"
부채(fan) + 질(the repeated act of ...) => 부채질 (fanning)
가위질, 걸레질, 망치질
불 is Sino Korean prefix. it means "not"
불(not) + 공평(fairness) => 불공평(unfairness)
