TAKE A LOOK-Asia GDP: South Korean economy bounces back in Q1 on exports, govt spending

South Korea's economy bounced back last quarter, buoyed by
booming exports of data memory chips and a boost from government
spending, although private consumption was sluggish.
    The Bank of Korea's GDP report showed the economy expanded
1.1 percent in the first quarter, rebounding after contracting
by 0.2 percent in the fourth quarter and beating the 1.0 percent
forecast in a Reuters poll.
