The benchmark Korea Composite Stock Price Index fell 6.15 points, or 0.3 percent, to close at 2,402.58. The Kospi opened higher, tracking gains on Wall Street, boosted by Federal Reserve officials' dovish comments on rates.
Trading volume was moderate at 410.31 million shares worth 9.3 trillion won ($6.9 billion), with losers outpacing gainers 626 to 259.
Overnight, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.6 percent to 33,604.65, and the tech-heavy NASDAQ Composite gained 0.4 percent to 13,484.24.
Market watchers have expected another rate hike this year due to higher-than-expected US employment data in September, but the US central bank said the odds for further tightening have dropped dramatically amid the Israel-Palestine conflict.
