Korea's foreign exchange reserves rose to a fresh high last month, mainly due to a weaker dollar, the Bank of Korea said on Friday.
The reserves stood at over US$405 billion in January, an increase of almost $2 billion from the month before rising for three straight months.
The central bank attributed the trend to a depreciation of the greenback.
As of the end of December, Korea had the eighth-biggest foreign exchange reserves in the world, with China topping the list.
