SEOUL, March 25 (Reuters) - South Korean shares ended lower on Tuesday, after disappointing manufacturing surveys from the United States added to growing fears about global economic growth prospects and reduced appetite for riskier assets.

The Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) closed down 0.2 percent at 1,941.25 points.
