The Korea Composite Stock Price Index has risen by the second highest margin among the G20 countries' bourses since the March crash.
The KOSPI has soared 64.4 percent, closing at 2,396.69 points on Sept. 11 up from 1,439.43 on March 19.
The figure puts it second only to Argentina, whose benchmark index rose over 100 percent.
By comparison, the U.S.' Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 48.8 percent.
Behind the rise of the KOSPI has been an influx of money from individual investors, many of them new to the stock market, who are using trading apps on their smartphones.
