SEOUL, Nov 28 (Reuters) - Round-up of South Korean financial markets:

** South Korean shares closed more than 1% lower on Monday as risk-averse sentiment prevailed on worries over China's COVID-19 lockdown measures. The Korean won posted its biggest fall in seven weeks, while the benchmark bond yield fell.

** The benchmark KOSPI .KS11 fell 29.59 points, or 1.21%, to close at 2,408.27.

** China's strenuous efforts to contain COVID-19 outbreaks with lockdown measures have been met with public anger, triggering protests and social uneasiness.

** "The political uneasiness strengthened risk-averse sentiment in financial markets," said Mirae Asset Securities' analyst Seo Sang-young. "China will soon have to modify its 'zero-COVID' policy stance."
