How is (을)게요 being used here?
So I was watching an interview and the man doing the interview was asking a korean woman about Korean and how hard the language is. He then said to her “한국어를 배우고 있는 사람들에게 응원의 말 부탁드릴게요.” Which translated to “Any words of encouragement to people who are learning Korean?”
I thought that -(을)게요 is only used when your tell someone that you will do something. However, here, he is asking her to do something for him and for the people watching the video. Therefore, why would (을)게요 be used here if he’s asking her to do something?
