SEOUL, June 17 (Reuters) - Round-up of South Korean financial markets:

** South Korean shares fell on Friday to post their worst week in nearly five months, as a flurry of interest rate hikes across the globe this week raised fears of a recession. The Korean won weakened, while the benchmark bond yield rose.

** The benchmark KOSPI slipped 10.48 points, or 0.43%, to 2,440.93, marking its lowest close since Nov. 6, 2020. The index fell 2.24% in early trade.

** For the week, the KOSPI fell 5.97% - its sharpest weekly drop since late January.

** Faster tightening by central banks fanned recession worries, said Daishin Securities' analyst Lee Kyoung-min, adding that the local stock market recovered some losses in afternoon trade after a rebound in U.S. stock futures.

** Following the Fed's 75-basis-point rate hike, the Bank of England raised interest rates by 25 basis points on Thursday.

** Among heavyweights, technology giant Samsung Electronics dropped 1.81% and peer SK Hynix fell 1.03%, while battery maker LG Energy Solution lost 0.35%.

** Foreigners were net sellers of 687.1 billion won ($533.02 million) worth of shares on the main board.

** The won was last quoted at 1,287.3 per dollar on the onshore settlement platform, 0.13% lower than its previous close. The currency weakened 1.43% for the week.

** In offshore trading, the won was quoted flat at 1,288.5 per dollar, while in non-deliverable forward trading its one-month contract was quoted at 1,288.7.

** In money and debt markets, June futures on three-year treasury bonds fell 0.03 point to 103.57 in late afternoon trade.

** The most liquid 3-year Korean treasury bond yield rose by 1.1 basis points to 3.741%, while the benchmark 10-year yield rose by 3.0 basis points to 3.790%. ($1 = 1,289.0800 won) (Reporting by Jihoon Lee)
