The biggest personal care store chain based in France, Sephora finally seems to be ready to open a store in South Korea.

Despite people’s high interests in and demands for cosmetic products, South Korea has been left out of Sephora’s 33 countries in which they have stores. However, Sephora looks like it’s finally bringing an outpost in Seoul, according to its job posting on LinkedIn.

According to the posting, which was updated on June 22, Sephora Korea plans to open by the third quarter of 2019.

Currently recruiting for a Human Resource manager, Sephora’s Korean division is yet to give further information, such as the location or exact opening date. Still, local customers are already excited that they won’t have to pay for the international shipping anymore.
