South Korea's consumer sentiment has improved in June compared to the month before due to continued government-led policies aimed at containing the spread of COVID-19.
The Bank of Korea's composite consumer sentiment index rose to 81.8, an on-month increase of 4.2 points on improved economic and households' financial conditions.
However, a reading below one hundred means pessimists outnumber optimists.
Expectations for future housing prices were up 16 points, the steepest rise in 21 months.
Inflation expectations for the next year remained unchanged.
