안녕하세요! In this lesson, we are looking at how to tell someone to do something in Korean. There are many different ways to say this in Korean, but for now, we are looking at the most commonly used structure, -(으)세요. And the usage that we are introducing in this lesson is not the only usage for the verb ending -(으)세요, but for now, it is good to just remember -(으)세요 for its usage for making imperative sentences in polite Korean.
