With the arrival of September comes Korean Thanksgiving, known as Chuseok!
This year, the official holiday are from September 28th ~ October 3rd.
During this time, all major companies in Korea, including our shipping partners, will be taking a break.
To ensure that your parcel is shipped out before we go on break, we kindly request that you place your order by September 22nd.
(While we will make every effort to ship orders placed after September 22nd, we cannot guarantee ship-out for those parcels.)
Normal shipping operations will resume on October 4th, with backlogged orders being shipped-out in the order they were received.
Best regards from Korea!

All reviews are genuine.

Sure - let me explain. Updates to your tracker are made by two different parties:
WHILE YOUR PARCEL IS IN KOREA, Korea Postal Service provides updates to the tracker.
ONCE THE PARCEL LEAVES KOREA, it is handed over to your country's Postal Service and they are responsible for making updates.
If you haven't see updates to your tracker in a while - it is most likely queuing at your country's Customs Office for clearance.
Updates to the tracker are posted AFTER the parcel clears Custom Office.
Please be patient. At times, there are delays at Customs Offices due to severe weather or spikes in parcel load, especially during the holidays.
Note: If it passes 3 weeks without any status updates, please contact daniel[at]gochujar.com for further help.
