[SEOUL] South Korean shares and the won currency ended higher on Tuesday as investors drew relief from Monday's US stock market rally, which eased their fears of fallout on the global economy from the Paris attacks.

The Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) closed up 1.1 per cent at 1,963.58 points.

The won closed onshore trade at 1,170.4 per dollar, up 0.3 per cent from Monday's close of 1,174.1.
