Actually when I realized that this model has been released, it was already sold out everywhere, but then I found on ebay and purchased as soon as and only that I read that it is not in stock at the moment, so I messaged to seller and have been told that they will ship at as soon as it arrives to their store. But I suppose it still hasn't. I've message them a few times, but they also don't have any info and kindly asked me to wait. I don't know if it is common or not, but this is how it is.
And, yes, I have purchased new released Korean Air 744 and 743 from local retailer in Korea.
So, I was thinking to wait until August 2018 when it will be a year since I purchased and if there will not be any updates, I will ask for refund.
