SEOUL, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Round-up of South Korean financial markets:

** South Korean shares ended nearly 1% higher on Tuesday, as upbeat earnings from chipmaker SK Hynix and trade data offset investor concerns over slower-than-expected quarterly economic growth. The won and the benchmark bond yield strengthened.

** The benchmark KOSPI closed up 28.54 points, or 0.94%, at 3,049.08.

** Among the heavyweights, chip giants Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix rose 1.28% and 2%, respectively, while battery maker LG Chem and platform company Naver added 1.10% and 2.48%, respectively.

** SK Hynix, the world's second-biggest memory chipmaker, forecast on Tuesday steady growth in demand for memory chips as it posted its highest quarterly operating profit since 2018 on the back of rising prices.

** Hyundai Motor gained 1.18%, tracking a 12.66% surge in Tesla shares overnight, even as its third-quarter profit missed analysts' estimates on chip shortage.

** The country's trade volume reached $1 trillion for the year on Tuesday and is set for a record in 2021, the country's customs agency said, lifting risk appetite further.

** Investors appeared to show scant response to a central bank data that cited the economy grew slower than expected in the third quarter, as subdued private consumption and weak construction and facility investment offset robust exports.

** Foreigners were net buyers of 106.1 billion won ($90.13 million) worth of shares on the main board.

** The won ended at 1,167.6 per dollar on the onshore settlement platform, 0.07% higher than its previous close.

** In offshore trading, the won was quoted at 1,166.6 per dollar, up 0.1% from the previous day, while in non-deliverable forward trading its one-month contract was quoted at 1,167.1.

** In money and debt markets, December futures on three-year treasury bonds rose 0.05 points to 108.47.

** The most liquid 3-year Korean treasury bond yield rose by 0.8 basis points to 1.927%, while the benchmark 10-year yield rose by 1.9 basis points to 2.445%.
