Ant-Backed Payments Firm Kakaopay Jumps on Market Debut in Seoul


South Korea’s technology industry continues to spawn big public companies, despite concerns that a government crackdown could hurt profits.

The stock more than doubled in morning trading in Seoul, compared with its initial public offering price, giving Kakaopay a valuation of nearly $21 billion.
