Key Quotes

“We consider our 0.5% full-year inflation forecast subject to upside risk (year-todate 0.6%, BOK 0.9%, Bloomberg consensus 0.8%). Supply factors contributed via the food and transport components.”

“The seasonal clawback of the Chusok-related bounce in the household furnishings component was the largest in three years, which we consider evidence of muted inflation expectations.”

“Core inflation was unchanged in September at August’s 2.1%.
