South Korean shares

Most South Korean shares and the won showed subdued movement early on Friday, but Samsung group shares fell, some sharply, after Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said it was difficult to adopt a holding company structure at this time.

Samsung Electronics dropped over one per cent, while Samsung C&T Corp and Samsung SDS Co Ltd both plummeted by more than 8 per cent.
