South Korea saw a drop in both export and import prices in June.
According to preliminary data from the Bank of Korea on Friday, the export price index stood at 100-point-95 last month, down two-point-one percent from a month earlier. It marks the first on-month drop in five months.
The decline was largely attributed to a point-six percent on-month drop in the won-dollar exchange rate. It fell to one-thousand-175-point-62 won on average in June.
The import price index came to 109-point-58, falling three-and-a-half percent from May, also marking the first on-month decline in five months.
