ABSTRACT
The Korean consumer credit sector is in trouble, especially the credit-card sector, with commercial banks and card companies reporting substantial charge-offs. The combination of these charge-offs and a surge in restructuring activities has resulted in a liquidity crunch for the sector. These credit concerns, coupled with the Korean geopolitical instability and the unearthing of accounting problems at one of the largest Korean companies, SK Global Co., are leading to greater investor concern, and buy-siders consequently have begun pulling out of the Korean bond market.
