Korean Won

Why does the Korean won come in thousands, and much higher numbers? I’m coming from U.S background, where we start from 1’s, then 5’s, etc. Can someone explain it, or point me to a link that does?

Probably because KRW has relatively low value compared to USD. But I’m no economist, so I don’t know exactly, but I guess maybe inflation has something to do about it.
