Bank of Korea (BOK) Governor Lee Ju-yeol and six other policy board members decided to leave the benchmark 7-day repurchase rate unchanged at 1.25 percent.

The central bankers slashed the target rate by 25 basis points to the current record-low level in October, just three months after lowering it from 1.75 percent and 1.50 percent in July.
