Michael S. Kaplan had a blog post about this in 2005:

In Japanese 円 is generally used for yen, in Korean 원 is generally used
for won, but both the yen sign and won sign are also used.
Some somewhat-Unicode Japanese or Korean fonts have Yen sign or Won
sign respectively instead of backslash in part due to what Kaplan
Obviously things get messy when copying the backslash character from a
Japanese font to a Korean font if that character has a different
currency glyph in both fonts.
