South Korean markets took in stride a US federal jury's order for Samsung to pay $290 million in damages to Apple, with Samsung shares going up 0.69 percent on Friday.
Samsung gained 10,000 won to close at 1.45 million won, as the overall KOSPI index gained 0.62 percent following a rally on Wall Street.
"This is hardly a surprise. The market is not taking it so seriously," Won Seo, an analyst with Korea Investment & Securities Co. told AFP.
