Thing I don't get about Indonesian is the have perlu and memperlukan meaning the same thing but keep memperlukan.

I guess memerlukan sounds more formal.

As its primary definition in KBBI is an adverb instead, perhaps perlu is not a verb originally but gradually becomes one through informal usage.
