Cultural Insight

Just remember that native Koreans use pure Korean numbers from 1-99, after 100, they use Sino Korean numbers.

Hi lindsy,


Thanks for your question. In Korea, 만=10,000, instead of being read as ten thousand.

So 30,000=3만


And 19,000 is 10,000(만) plus 9,000(구천) so it would be 만구천원.

30,420=삼만사백이십.


Please let us know if you have any other questions.


Best,

안녕하세요!

질문 있어요:)

만 means 10,000..does a number placed before 만 mean _thousand?

For example, would 3만 mean 30,000?

And if I wanted to say 19,000, would it be 만 십구천?

삼만 사백이십= 30,420?


고마워요!
