K Ba-Nana ‘Pops Up’ in University Village

K Ba-Nana, a Korean-inspired beauty pop-up shop, has opened in University Village. “I’ve always loved everything about Korean trends, especially all the fun, cute beauty products,” said founder Liz Kang Yates. “I’m excited about sharing a mix of Korean brands, some of which are being sold in the U.S. for the very first time, in a colorful and innovative environment.” The pop-up shop, which takes over the space formerly occupied by Apple, offers an assortment of K-beauty favorites, such as sheet masks, nail polish, cosmetics, and skin care essentials. In addition to beauty, K Ba-Nana also offers a curated mix of accessories, including socks, hairpins, jewelry, and gifts. Featured brands include TPSY, Too Cool for School, Huxley, IPKN, Moart, and A’Pieu.

The store features bright colors, hand-painted murals, and custom fixtures designed by local artists and builders to highlight the unique mix of Korean beauty products. Interactive Instagram-worthy scenes were strategically designed within the store to offer a fun and memorable shopping experience. And be sure to check out the Molly Moon vending machine that serves up Minimoon cups of ice cream. K Ba-Nana, located at 2656 N.E. University Village St., will remain open as a pop-up through the end of the year.
