South Korea had a current account surplus of $2.68 billion in December, the Bank of Korea said on Wednesday - following the $0.22 billion shortfall in November.

The goods account saw a $0.48 billion deficit, down from the $4.43 billion surplus a year earlier.

The services account deficit increased to $1.39 billion, from $0.76 billion in December the year prior, owing to a decrease in the transport account surplus.
