Can't it be global bank? idk

"World Bank" is basically a set phrase for this type of bank (admittedly in this context the aim is to learn Korean so it might not matter if the English isn't formally accurate though)

Like the Japanese word sekai (world) it says sekye Noice, there are so many Japanese words that are similar to Korean words

I think because korean and japanese people used to talk in chinese before the languages were invented

What you're saying is same as English people used to talk in Latin before their language is invented.
