There are two systems for counting in Korean. Pure Korean and Sino Korean. Pure Korean numerals are used for- hours, counting objects, years and some other things. Sino Korean is used to count- minutes, dates, months, write addresses, phone nos., money, floors, years (years are counted in both systems. 어섯 is the Pure Korean numeral and 육 is the Sino Korean numeral. For counting animals/people/ objects, we use Pure Korean numerals. So yeah.
