- Speculation North Korea Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un has been taken out continues to rise as it's now been more than a month since the tyrant was seen in public. The latest public event missed was today's visit to a family mausoleum, an annual event Kim has attended without fail since he took power.
- He was last seen at a concert on September 3, and previous to that had apparently been walking with a limp, suggesting maybe he's been sidelined with gout or some other disease/injury.
- His father, Kim Jong Il, disappeared for more than two months in 2008 after suffering what Western intelligence believed to be a stroke. In the year following, North Korea fired a long-range rocket, exited international disarmament talks, and conducted another underground nuclear test.
- Last night, North Korea fired a number of machine gun rounds across the border into South Korea, prompting the South to respond with its own fire.

- Hardest hit of late among regional currencies by the tumble in China's yuan is South Korea's won, reflecting the growing trade between the two countries. Correlations between the yuan and won have grown increasingly tighter over the past year, says Credit Agricole global currency chief Mitul Kotecha, and other Asian currencies have even become negatively correlated with the Chinese unit.
- Morgan Stanley data shows export exposure to China accounts for 13% of South Korean GDP - high, but not as much as Singapore (20%) and Taiwan (17%).

- The Korean won's strong performance over the last six months is leading a growing number of analysts to worry Samsung's (SSNLF, SSNGY) Q4 results will miss estimates.
- The company's chip business is especially vulnerable to forex swings, since it relies on dollars for order settlement. BNP Paribas estimates every 1% change in the won/dollar exchange rate hurts the op. profit of Samsung's chip division by 4%.
- Citing exchange rates and (to a lesser extent) margin pressure for Samsung's OLED display business, IBK Investment is now expecting the electronics/display/chip giant to post a Q4 op. profit of KWT9.5T ($9.04B), below a KWT10.3T Thomson Reuters consensus.
- Korean automakers Hyundai (HYMLF -5.1%) and Kia (KIMTF -6.1%) also fell hard in Seoul overnight. South Korea's benchmark KOSPI index fell 2.2%.
