SEOUL, May 19 (Reuters) - Round-up of South Korean financial markets:

** South Korean shares fell over 1% on Thursday, tracking the overnight plunge in Wall Street, as investors fretted over global economic slowdown and inflationary pressures. The Korean won weakened, while the benchmark bond yield fell.

** The benchmark KOSPI closed down 33.64 points, or 1.28%, at 2,592.34, after two sessions of gains.

** Concerns about weaker corporate earnings and economic recession due to inflation shocks re-emerged after U.S. retail companies' earnings results, said Daishin Securities' analyst Lee Kyoung-min.

** In the United States, Target Corp's quarterly profit halved and it warned on Wednesday of a bigger margin hit this year due to rising fuel and freight costs.

** China's COVID-hit financial hub will start to allow more businesses in zero-COVID areas to resume normal operations, alleviating some concerns over supply chain disruptions.

** Among the heavyweights, technology giant Samsung Electronics fell 0.88% and peer SK Hynix dropped 2.20%, while battery maker LG Energy Solution rose 1.34%.

** Foreigners were net sellers of 96.9 billion won ($75.82 million) worth of shares on the main board.

** Of the total traded issues of 927, 123 shares rose.

** The won was last quoted at 1,277.7 per dollar on the onshore settlement platform, 0.87% lower than its previous close at 1,266.6, snapping a four-day gaining streak.

** In offshore trading, the won was quoted at 1,277.5 per dollar, down 0.2% from the previous day, while in non-deliverable forward trading its one-month contract was quoted at 1,277.4.

** In money and debt markets, June futures on three-year treasury bonds rose 0.04 points to 105.31 in late afternoon trade.

** The most liquid 3-year Korean treasury bond yield fell 2.6 basis points to 3.046%, while the benchmark 10-year yield dipped 0.9 basis point to 3.311%.
