      The strengthening won has cast a shadow over exports this month. The won strengthened to over 1,020 range against the dollar to a six-year high.

      Shin Seung-kwan at the Korea International Trade Association said exporters consider their break-even point an exchange rate of around W1,045.

      If the won holds steady at around W1,024 range, 76.5 percent of Korean exporters will have to suffer losses, KITA claimed.
