Korea logged a current account surplus for the 28th straight month in June.
The Bank of Korea says the total came to slightly over 7.9-billion U.S. dollars last month.
That pushed the current account balance for the first half of the year to an all-time high of 39.2-billion dollars, a 25 percent increase year-on-year.
The nation's current account balance has been in the black since March 2012, that's the second longest stretch since Korea posted a surplus for 38 consecutive months in the late 1980s.
Exports of display panels and semiconductors both rose more than 10 percent in June from a year earlier.
