Garnering Attention Overseas as a Unique Noodle Dish
Korean ramyeon (instant noodles) is highly popular around the world. According to MAFRA (the Korean Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs), exports of Korean ramyeon achieved a record-high of more than US$ 300 million last December. Such an impressive result is attributed to tons of favorable reviews of ramyeon, shared through social media such as Instagram and Youtube, which are a major platform for the spread of Hallyu (the Korean wave). These days, unusual types of Korean ramyeon are all the rage. Among them is jjajang ramyeon, sweet and salty noodles in black bean sauce. Let us introduce you to jjajang ramyeon products that top popularity charts in the domestic market.
