SEOUL (Reuters) - Shares in Samsung Electronics Co Ltd gained 2 percent on Thursday, as expectations for U.S. economic recovery - triggered by the Federal Reserve's decision to begin slowing its bond-buying program - lifted investor appetite for the index heavyweight.

Samsung Electronics makes up about 18 percent in market capitalization of the wider market, which was up 0.2 percent as of 0302 GMT.
