Bank of Korea keeps benchmark rate at 0.5% amid pandemic uncertainty Updated: 2021-01-15 16:16:35 KST

South Korea's central bank decided on Friday to keep its benchmark interest rate at an all-time low of zero.five percent.
The decision comes as the BOK focuses on what some say is an overheated stock market rally and a boom in household debt.
The governor of the central bank said he's concerned about individual investors taking on unbearable risk.
Other major central banks are holding steady as well, the U.S. Federal Reserve having signaled that it'll keep rates near zero at least until 2023.
