[SEOUL] South Korean shares fell on Monday as they went ex-dividend, underperforming most of their regional peers.

The Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) ended down 1 per cent at 1,927.86 points.

The won closed nearly unchanged after being locked in a tight range all session, with trading thinned out as investors squared out their positions ahead of the year-end.

The currency was quoted at 1,097.8 to the dollar at the conclusion of onshore trade, compared to 1,098.7 at Friday's close.
