    She loves him but he doesn't (love her).

    source : Grammar Zone workbook p21,2

    Translate the Korean.
    그녀는 그를 사랑하지만 그는 그녀를 사랑하지 않는다.
    => She loves him but he doesn't (love her).

    The latter part of the Korean means he doesn't love her.
    So if you omit (love her ) it would mean "he doesn't love himself " . Right?

    Re: She loves him but he doesn't (love her).

    Similar expressions.
    A: Nice to meet you.
    B : You, too
    : Koreans make a mistake of saying "me, too" in this case. I think this might be related to self-centered way of expression in English.
    You, too = It's nice (for me = already implied) to meet you, while Korean language is related to the other party-centered expression.
    Me, too = Yes, what you said is right, I(me) agree with your expression(Nice to meet you), I only repeat what you said.


    A : I love you => How do you say to this? I love you, too?

    Re: She loves him but he doesn't (love her).

    A: I love you.
    B: I love you too.

    That's how you should respond (if you mean it).
