I looked all over for this phrase here and I didn’t see it anywhere. Maybe I have it written within another post or something but I really thought it was here.
- 말해 줘 (malhae jwo) | tell me
So let’s break this down a bit.
말해 (malhae) comes from the verb 말하다 meaning “to talk” or “to tell” or “to say”
줘 (jwo) comes from the verb 주다 means “to give”
So when we say “말해” on it’s own like the phrase above, it’s understood to mean “tell me” however, when you add 줘 on the end of this phrase, it goes from being a command to asking the person. It’s like saying “please tell me.”
Okay, I’m having a bit of déjà vu here but if I do end up finding that post on here I will link it to this post!
