    hajima (하지마 ) literally means don't do it.

    hada ( 하 다 ) : to do

    When you plus -jima ( -지마 )it gives you negative statement.

    * KoreaN saY tHis to aSk a PeRsoN to stop doing something *.

    At Tae Kwon Do we say "Goman" to tell the kids to stop, for example when we have them split up into groups the Master will say "Goman!" and all the kids know that it is time to stop what they are doing. I'm not sure if it's the polite way to ask, but it's more polite than saying hajima, which is usually used when you are telling someone to stop doing something because you are annoyed by it, for example you could say "hajima" when someone keeps poking you or calling you a name you don't like and sometimes parents say "hajima" to kids when they are arguing/hitting/fighting to get them to stop!

    Only girl's use it, it's a term for an older boy (but not older by too much) because if a guy is older by you heaps you'd call them "ahjusshi" instead which means uncle~ In bf/gf relationship, girlfriend usually calls the bf "oppa"~ Oh and there is no feminine equivalent because females use it.. it'd be so wrong if a guy called an older guy "oppa" xD lols~~~ But there is a male equivalent -> Hyung Sunbae-nim can be used by both I'm pretty sure. It's basically the same as the Japanese Senpai~ Female equivalents - Oppa, Unni (term for older girl) Male Equivalent - Hyung, Noona (term for older girl) There's also Ahjumma (which means aunty) and Ahjusshi (uncle) which is used by both genders~ (Appa and Umma is dad and mom i thiiink. xD)

    In Korean, hajima means "stop, i don't like it" sort of thing.

    If someone is going to fight you, you might say "hajima!" to attempt to dissuade them.

    If someone goes to put something in the wrong place, you could say "hajima" as in to say "stop, that's not right"

    That's what it means. It means like "stop that!"

    Source(s): Learn Korean. Hajima was actually my very first word i learnt! (apart from the word seaweed)!

    Oppa is what females call males older than them. It means older brother, so it should be a male who is older than you but not someone like around you dad's age or way older than you. Noona is what males use to call older females; it means older sister. You probably shouldn't call someone oppa or noona like the first time you meet them. It's good to get a little acquainted first. When you call someone oppa or noona you just say "oppa" or "noona" when you're talking to them or you can put their name infront of it like "Kibum Oppa" or "Eunhye Noona". <-- You wanna do that if your talking to someone about them, because if you don't they obviously wouldn't know who you're talking about. :) Unni (older sister)- what females call older femals Hyung (older brother)- what males call older males *you don't have to be literally brother/sister or related
