Long explanation:

'도 [do]' is a particle used in Korean to express the idea of 'too' or 'also' in a sentence. When attached after a noun, it means that the action applies to that noun as well. It can be used in both positive and negative statements, and can also be used to provide emphasis, often translated as 'even' in English. In other words, 너도 means 'you too', 나도 means 'I also', and 저도 means 'I too'.
