Questionable written pronunciation of Korean numbers found in textbook

If you’ve ever gone through Korean lessons, you might have come across some odd and questionable written pronunciation, and you’re not the only one who’s thought this as well.

In a recently published post on online community board Instiz on September 21st, a netizen posted a thread with the title “Korean numbers that shock foreigners.”

The original poster uploads a set of photos that illustrate the written pronunciation given to foreigners for Korean numbers (quantity), which is very questionable in this particular textbook.
