SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's antitrust watchdog said on Thursday it will tentatively fine Broadcom Inc and affiliates 19.1 billion won ($14.24 million) for forcing a long-term supply deal that was unilaterally disadvantageous to Samsung Electronics.

The country's Fair Trade Commission will also issue a corrective order to Broadcom, it said in a statement.

A representative of Broadcom could not be immediately reached. Samsung declined comment.
