Korea's benchmark KOSPI shed 2.47 percent extending losses for the sixth consecutive day. The tech-heavy KOSDAQ also finished more than 2 percent lower. The downward streak comes amid economic uncertainties fueled by a market rout in China and rising tensions between the two Koreas. Analysts expect it will be hard for the Korean market to find momentum for the time being.
