Online Shopping in Korea Keeps Surging


Government data showed last week that online shopping in South Korea reached a fresh record high in December on the back of a steady upbeat trend of buying goods through computers and mobile phones.

According to the data compiled by Statistics Korea, total online transactions reached a record 6.2 trillion won (US$5.4 billion) in December, up 15.4 percent from a year earlier.

It marked the highest monthly amount of online purchases, breaking the earlier record of 6.1 trillion won set in the previous month.
