An Instant Version of "Ram-Don," the Noodles From 'Parasite,' Will Release Globally

From South Korean food company Nongshim.

Bong Joon-Ho‘s Oscar-winning film Parasite has ignited countless cultural conversations since its release, including one particular fascination with “Ram-Don,” the noodles that Choong-sook cooks at the behest of wealthy housewife Yeon-kyo.

“Ram-Don,” a combination of the words “ramen” with “udon” (a type of noodle), is a term that the film’s translator made up for easier-to-read English subtitles. If you listen closely, the characters actually refer to “jjapaguri” or “chapaguri,” a popular Korean fast food dish made by combining instant noodles by two brands, Chapagetti and Neoguri. Yeon-kyo asks Choong-sook to put an upper-class twist on the typically low-brow food by topping it with steak.

South Korean food company Nongshim has picked up on the craze for Choong-sook’s sirloin noodles and will release an instant version of the dish. Two flavors, “‘Angri-Chapaguri Big Bowl” and “Zapaguri Big Bowl” will hit stores globally. An exact release date remains unclear, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out Nongshim’s teaser below.
