SEOUL, April 9 (Yonhap) -- The South Korean currency on Wednesday rose to its highest against the U.S. dollar since the 2008 global financial crisis amid the dollar's weakness and foreigners' stock buying, dealers said.
The local currency ended at 1,041.40 won per the greenback, up 10.80 won from the previous session.
It marked the highest closing since Aug. 14, 2008 when the won hit 1,039.80 per the dollar. The won touched an intra-day high of 1,040.10 versus the dollar at one point.
