Etymology[edit]

From the Sino-Korean reading of date June 25, 1950, the day marking the start of the Korean War. The full date is read in Korean as 1950년 25월 (6일 천구백오십년 유월 이십오일). The alternative pronunciation of 6 (육) as 유 isn't maintained once 년 and 월 are dropped because it occurs only when the number 6 appears in the name of a month.

Proper noun[edit]

육이오 (Yugio) (hanja 六二五)

  1. The Korean War.
