SEOUL, June 19 (Reuters) - South Korea's top financial market regulator said on Thursday he would review the current mortgage lending regulations in response to signs of a halting economic recovery, suggesting lending restrictions could be eased.

"(I) will look into it to find out if there are ways to support the real economic activity without hurting the financial stability," Shin Je-yoon, chairman of the Financial Services Commission, told lawmakers when asked if his agency was willing to loosen some of the lending restrictions.
