Going to South Korea later this year? Want to take a look at a Tesla while you're there?

You just might be in luck.

Bloomberg today said that Tesla (Nasdaq: TSLA) is aiming to open its first store in South Korea, which will land in the country's largest mall when it opens in September.

The mall, Starfield Hanam, will cover over 70 football fields in total area.

While Tesla generally opens up showrooms in retail locations, such as shopping malls, many premium auto dealers are doing the same thing in an effort to capture some of the market that wouldn't traditionally venture to a dealer lot.

Shares of Tesla are down 0.6 percent.
