SEOUL, May 15 (Reuters) - South Korean shares edged up on Monday along with other Asian markets, despite worries of disruption from the “Wannacry” ransomeware cyberattack and a missile test by North Korea over the weekend.
The Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) closed up 0.2 percent at 2,290.65 points, staying close to a record high of 2,296.37 reached on May 11.
Foreign investors were net sellers, offloading 95.9 billion won ($85.42 million) worth of KOSPI shares.
The South Korean won gained 0.34 percent, shrugging off Sunday’s test-launch of a ballistic missile by North Korea.
The won was quoted at 1,123.6 to the dollar at the conclusion of onshore trade, up compared to Friday’s close of 1,127.4.
