At the store, customers can try different flavors of Pods, the liquid refill cartridges, and purchase Juul e-cigarettes. Juul currently offers five types of Pods and devices in two colors - silver and black. Having launched domestically in late May, Juul is sold at 15,000 convenience stores.

“We’re glad to offer a space to help adult smokers try our device,” said Juul Labs Korea CEO Lee Seung-jae.
