As I'm sure you've noticed you can get thyme and rosemary dried with some looking. I cook frequently and was able to easily find them. I know they aren't fresh, but maybe maybe a substitution is possible. What are you cooking? If you are set on fresh, maybe you can find the plant at a garden store and grow it yourself.

Also, sage is nearly impossible to find here. I did so much searching and had no luck. I had my mother ship some to me.

It's hard to find fresh herbs here. I once looked for Basil for a week and then I found a little basil plant at one of the flower shops with the potted plants that are usually outside. Not exclusively a florist, but specifically the one with the little pots. Not sure about what you want but they're all over so maybe pop in there.

Asia-mart.co.kr has some fresh. Herbs. Potted rosemary is at many florists. I have 2 plants. I have sometimes seen potted sage and thyme, too.
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me.

I usually get my fresh basil and rosemary from the shinsegae department store market.

Basil, cilantro and rosemary are often available at Emart in small bags. Theyre usually well hidden with refrigerated produce

If you don't live near a large city with a supermarket that might have them (like me) Nice market (www.nicemarket.net) has fresh herbs for a reasonable price - they do have a minimum for delivery and a set delivery schedule (every Wednesday) but if you plan ahead it works out well. I've ordered basil, cilantro and mint and have been happy with the product. I know they don't have sage though because I was looking for it around Thanksgiving.

If you're near Seoul the international market in Itaewon has fresh herbs. There was a small selection including Thai basil and dill. I'm not positive about the herbs you mentioned but you could call ahead to save yourself a trip the workers speak English.

If in Busan, you can find fresh cilantro, dill, and sweet basil at the international marts. There's also a place I know with a rosemary bush. The dried stuff can be found at e-marts, homepluses, costcos, megamarts, ______marts

I've never ordered them myself, but I've seen on gmarket you can buy potted herb plants. I just found one seller, but they had a really good selection.

I've also had luck at emart with fresh herbs--basil, rosemary and occasionally thyme. However, this was only at an e-mart in an expensive neighborhood.
