It can be difficult for foreigners learning Korean to make sense of the Korean numbers. But once you understand the Korean number system, Korean numbers actually become quite easy. Korean has tow sets of numbers: Sino-Korean numbers and Native-Korean Numbers. Sino-Korean is used for any numbers greater than 100. Counting units of time, other than hours, is done using Sino-Korean numbers. Sino-Korean is also employed for math computations, money/currency, phone numbers and measurements (kilometers, liters, grams, etc.) Native-Korean includes numbers up to 99 and are used for counting physical objects, hours, years of age, as well as counting months and counting in general.
