South Korea's economy grows 0.4%
South Korea's economy grew 0.4% in the second quarter of the year, from the previous three months.
That's a slower pace compared to a near 1% expansion in the first quarter.
South Korea's central bank recently trimmed its growth forecast for the year to 3% from 3.5%.
There are fears the economy will continue to slow, as it relies on exports for almost half of its total output.
Hank Morris from Triple A Partners told the BBC's Asia Business Report that South Korea's problems came from both domestic demand and overseas customers.
