몇번 : what number / which number
Previously, ''몇' (myod) was translate as 'how many', however if '몇' is used with '번' (bon) [number], the meaning of '몇' is changed to 'what' or 'which'. For instance, '몇번' is used to ask a numerical question (e.g a telephone number or a bus number).
A : 몇번버스예요? (Myod-bon bo-se ye-yo?)
What is the bus number?
B : 701번. (Chil-beg-i bon)
It's number 701
When you give a telephone number in Korean, say '에' (e) for the dash.
몇월며칠 : what date / which date
The interrogative '몇' (myod) can also be be used with month '월' (wol) or day '일' (il) to ask about the date. Note that '며칠' (myo-chil), not '몇 일' (myod-il) is used to ask the date. The two are indistinguishable in pronounciation, but '며 칠' (myo-chil) must be used in writing.
|월 (wol) : month|
|요일(yoil) : days|
