The sell-off continues in South Korea's stock market.
On Friday, the benchmark KOSPI fell by 1.one-seven percent to close at a little above 23-oh-5.
It actually fell below 23-hundred around mid-day for the first time in 20 months.

Foreign investors continue to be heavy sellers of the local market despite the relatively low valuations of local stocks, moving their capital to other assets as the dollar gains strength.
