하지마 usage If someone was doing something that you don't like or that you want them to stop, could you just simply say '하지마'? or are there better phrases for this? Is 하지마 only mean to be attached to verbs and such?

하지 마 / 그러지 마 / 그만해 => Stop it. 하지 마 can mean what you said by itself when the unwanted action is obvious. 하다 often stands in for more specific actions, so one doesn't always need to specify the action. You can also say 그러지 마 (= 그렇게 하지 마 = Don't act/behave like that), or 그만해 (그만하다 = stop doing something). All three are commonly used, especially by kids and youngsters or between close friends.
