History[edit]

Shin Ramyun is an instant noodle produced by Nong Shim. The first production was in 1986. Recently there are several different versions including Seafood shin ramyun and Black Shin Ramyun.

Packaging[edit]

Shin Ramyun is packaged with its distinctive shiny seasoning packet and a plastic packet of dehydrated vegetables. The noodles are dry and packed tightly like any other noodles. Some have a circular shape but models sold in Korea have a square block shape. Instant cup or instant bowl form could be bought in convenience stores. This model came out in 1981.[3]
