SEOUL -- An oversupply of LCD panels stemming from China pushed LG Display, the world's largest supplier, into a rare third-quarter loss that underscores the tough choices facing the industry's remaining players.

The South Korean company on Oct. 23 announced a 437 billion won ($372 million) operating loss for the July-September period. Sales shrank 4.6% from a year earlier to 5.82 trillion won.
