만 is ten thousand so 백만 is 100 x 10,000 = 1,000,000.
Yes, indeed. Koreans count in units of 10 000. So, the next step would be 10 000 * 10 000 = 100 000 000 (일억).
Useful if you ever find yourself looking to buy a house in Korea ;)
This is using math that has always confused me. Too mnay zeros
"백만 워ㅓㅓㅓㅓ언" I always remember this from the 3racha song
How to pronounce this 백만 correctly?
Is it 뱅만 ?
I don't understand why it is pronounced behngman NOT beckman
It is korean ! Not any other things. We don't need to know why are things that way. We are only supposed to learn.
