Out of its funk


Korean shares hit a high for the year on Wednesday, breaking the 2,000 mark for the first time in 2016 thanks to recent announcements by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen that hinted a gradual approach to raising U.S. interest rates. Korean shares closed at 2,002.14, up 7.23 points, or 0.36 percent, from the previous trading day. [NEWSIS]
