Leading chemical firm LG Chem added 0.7 percent to 290,500 won, but the nation\'s No.1 carmaker Hyundai Motor declined 3.1 percent to 219,500 won. Kia Motors tumbled 4 percent to 59,800 won, and the country\'s largest auto parts maker Hyundai Mobis slid 2.9 percent to 269,000 won. The local currency finished at 1,095.8 won against the greenback, up 1.2 won from Friday\'s close. Bond prices ended lower.
