Ramyeon or Ramyun is a Korean word that represents instant noodle, based on the Japanese Ramen. 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.
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. Lotte industry (today's Nongshim) invigorated the Korean market of ramyeon in 1965.
In 2010s until now, Korean stores and restaurants have sprawled anywhere in the world. Baguio City has several Korean restaurants serving Ramyeon.
