SEOUL May 10 South Korean shares fell on Friday
as investors dumped exporters including Hyundai Motor
after the Japanese yen weakened further, deepening
concerns about South Korean firms' competitiveness.
Samsung Electronics, the biggest share on the
main KOSPI and the world's No.1 memory chip maker, fell 2.6
percent. Hyundai Motor, the second-biggest share on the main
board, declined 2.3 percent.
The Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) ended
down 1.75 percent to 1,944.75 points, giving up all of its
previous session's gains made on South Korean central bank's
rate cut decision.
