Quoted from It depends on the counting noun. Generally, if the counting noun is Sino-Korean, the numbers read as Sino-Korean. if the counting noun is Native-Korean, the numbers read as native-Korean. There are some exceptions. 건, 개, 명, 시간, 근, 시 are used with native-Korean number 살 is native, 54(살) read as native. 세 is Sino-Korean, 54(세) reads as Sino-Korean. When reading as Native number, the number which is above 100 read as Sino and the number which is below 100 read as native. 6번 => 육번(for number), 여섯번(for times) 6분 => 육분(for minutes), 여섯분(for people) 6개 => 여섯개 6 points => 육점 or 여섯점 600 points => 육백점 6 people => 여섯명 600 people => 육백명 6x => 여섯배 3 languages => 언어 세개, 세개의 언어
