Ramyeon or Ramyun is a Korean word that represents instant noodle. Most ramyeons in South Korea are spicy as it is Koreans' most favorite flavor. In South Korea, the best-selling ramyeon brands are Shin Ramyun and Neoguri.[1]


The first instant ramyeon in South Korea was introduced by Samyang Food in 1963 under technical assistance from Myojo Foods Co. Japan, which provided manufacturing equipment.[2][3][4] The Lotte Food Industrial Company (currently named Nongshim) invigorated the Korean market of ramyeon in 1965.[5]

In 2010s until now, Korean stores and restaurants have sprawled anywhere in the world. Baguio City has several Korean restaurants serving Ramyeon.
