South Korea's economy grew 0.6 percent in April-June over the previous quarter, the central bank estimated on Thursday, the slowest in more than a year due to sluggish consumption while falling slightly below market expectations.
The data follows 0.9 percent growth for the first quarter on a sequential basis and marks the weakest since a 0.6 percent gain in the first quarter of 2013. The median forecast from a Reuters survey of 27 analysts was 0.7 percent, on a seasonally adjusted basis.
The Bank of Korea estimates showed private consumption fell a seasonally adjusted 0.3 percent in the second quarter after edging up 0.2 percent in the January-March period. Capital investment rose 1.3 percent after a 1.9 percent decline.

From a year earlier, the economy expanded 3.6 percent in the June quarter, compared with a median 3.6 percent forecast in a Reuters poll and 3.9 percent growth in the first quarter.
