So, would "only two won" be translated as something like "이 원만?"

Only two won would be written as '이 원만'

The translation when hovering over 원 says "circle"

Think of it as "coin" - a circle.

Dollar is one of the only currency i know of that puts the currency name before the number. I don't remember for pounds but i know for sure euros is written after (0€) and yen and won yuan as well (0¥) and my keyboard does not have the other simbols lol

Pounds goes before too - £20

Where did the twenty come from when there is only the mention of the number two

이만 means 2 * 10000 = 20000

Thousand consists of 3 zeros unless it ten thousand
