I'm no expert on Korean (maybe somebody reading is!) but it appears that
the currency symbol for the South Korean Won changed from a W with a
single line through it (FFE6 at [1]), to a W with a double line through
it (20A9 at [2]).

I agree it is likely updated CLDR data, which has got that as the symbol
(line 273 at [3]).

Which is a long way of saying, "I agree" :-)
