Native (numbers) vs Sino (counting)
There are two sets of numbers in Korean: the native Korean system and the Sino-Korean system. The native numbers are used for numbers of items (1-99) and age, while the Sino-Korean system is based on Chinese numbers and are used for dates, money, addresses, phone numbers, and numbers above 100. But if you use the Native Korean for almost every use, people will still understand fine.
