Ryu Seung-ryong sells hot and spicy… ramyun
by | December 13, 2012 | 93 Comments

javabeans: As if dramas weren’t enough to make you want to eat ramyun, now there’s THIS. The video’s been out two days and already it’s a smash hit online. I’ll give you a minute. Not to watch, but to fan yourself and recover.

girlfriday: Ryu Seung-ryong? Yeah imma need more than a minute. And what the hell is Man Ramyun? I don’t know but I think I want some.


javabeans: My first thought was that it must be a joke promo, or a really tongue-in-cheek brand like Man Kimchi. But apparently it’s just a line of ramyun that they sell. To the mens.

girlfriday: With puns.

javabeans: Yes, of course. Because naturally when I heard the name I assumed it was namja-ramyun in the sense of “If you are a man…” not literally Namja Ramyun. It’s like the Eun-bi Ramyun wordplay in Flower Boy Ramyun Shop.

girlfriday: Yes, but taken to funnier and more marketable extremes. The commercial is… just… OMG.

javabeans: First of all, it’s Ryu Seung-ryong being a sexy bastard. Second of all, he’s being a sexy bastard with a totally straight face, saying things like (in sexy man voice), “Gar…lic… mmhmmm…

girlfriday: And… did he just seduce that egg out of that chicken?

javabeans: Why yes, yes he did. And that chicken just gave it up, that hussy. I think what cracks me up so hard (aside from, you know, the whole thing) is the way it just goes on and on forever. It’s ramyun porn, in both the gratuitous ramyun shot way, and the wow-is-he-doing-something-indecent-with-that-noodle way.

girlfriday: Seriously. Does he have to caress everything in slow motion?

javabeans: Well, does it make you think hot and spicy or not? (Per the tagline, of course, which is… “Hot and spicy… if you’re A MAN.” Lol.)

girlfriday: Well yeah, but it’s not really ramyun I’m thinkin’ about.

javabeans: Yeah now I wanna do something indecent with that noodle. But I guess I’ll settle for Namja Ramyun.

girlfriday: Or the commercial on repeat. Fewer calories that way.

  20. 20 topper

    “And that chicken just gave it up, that hussy”.

    My keyboard can’t take coffee.

    • 20.1 pinky

      The comments are funnier than the ad! “seduces the egg out of the chicken”!

      Still LOL!

  21. 21 befuddled

    lol-ing. Oh wow.

  22. 22 Enz

    • 23.1 ys

      Oh no you did Not. Ha!

  24. 24 mandelbrotr

    Most awesome slo-mo noodle slurp. Ever.

    • 24.1 kfangurl

      I know right?! I was watching that, wondering if he’d really get that huge river of ramyun into his mouth AND HE DID. OMG. Could. Not. Stop. Laughing. XD

  25. 25 DayDreamer


    I love it!!! This is just so crazy funny.

  26. 26 langdon813

    Tasty ramyun, tasty man. Yum, yum…

  27. 27 Pepper Fish

    He even got a lip wipe in at the end. Hahaha. Classic!

  28. 28 cmrprindle

    Oh. My. Gosh. That is hilarious. And with Leonard Cohen’s “I’m Your Man” in the background? bwahahahahaha!

  29. 29 alligator

    If I wasn’t in the office I would be literally rofl.

  30. 30 Emily

    …and the bar has been raised. Now I want all the commercials to be like that. Heck, I’d watch just that one all day.

  31. 31 kelinci biru

    The advertiser think in reverse. This is how you make a commercial to sell stuff to women. It definitely works.

    • 31.1 jubilantia

      Well, I’m pretty sure all the men secretly want him, too, so they can just pretend they’re eating it to seduce women! Everyone wins!

      • 31.1.1 Kelinci Biru

        maybe want to be him ^^ win win indeed

  32. 32 Danna

    Omg this is exactly like his character in All about my wifer…uber Casannova, sex god…friggin hilarious…i love this man and how he’s game for anything

  33. 33 mellowyel

    Too funny. I wonder why namja-food is a thing now.

  34. 34 cv


    ^^ 😛

  35. 35 AnotherFan

    I can get addicted to watching this hot and spicy… ramyun (ahem..)

  36. 36 JoowonLover:P

    That was so weird…I will never look at another ramyun noodle cup in the same way. HAHA!

  37. 37 momosa

    It’s Namja Ramyun for women and gay men, that’s what they are trying to do! OMG it’s wild! and I want Yoon Kye Sang in it ….

  38. 38 mina

    lol “The Art of Eating Ramyun!” or is it making?!

  39. 39 Bernadine Moore

    Okay…I lol’d at the ad, but lmao at the comments. Really…I had tears running down my cheeks! You guys are great! What a team. Really need to laugh like that at least once a day! Thanks!

  40. 40 kumi


  41. 41 mud

    Best commercial ever. So funny. I love the egg-seduction and the meat piano part.

  42. 42 LMG

    slow mo’ the ramen noodle flip into his mouth.

    holy mother of jesus imma livin’ in the wrong country

  43. 43 swinter111

    wow, 1more year then im legal but i can still secretly enjoy this. just wow

  44. 44 rearwindow

    This is officially the WEIRDEST commercial I have ever seen.


    Just. Wow.

    The tipping point of ridiculousness for me, for some inexplicable reason, is the incongruously melancholy Leonard Cohen song playing in the background. I mean, sure, the lyrics sort of fit with the bizarre concept of strangely sexual hyper-masculine ramyun preparation, but…Leonard Cohen’s quietly emotional voice is just such a strange juxtaposition.

  45. 45 Gaeina Lee

    Oh my goodness.

  46. 46 whimsicalnet


    ok… replay…..


  47. 47 jubilantia


    This is the most beautifully hysterical thing OF. ALL. TIME.

    Also RAWR

  48. 48 Cassandra

    I would buy ANYTHING this man is selling. Amazing commercial.

  49. 49 Sanicia

    SO FREAKING HILARIOUS. It actually reminds me of something that would be found in a Stephen Chow movie but omg Ryu Seung-ryong does it better!

  50. 50 Joy

    Wow! That’s one of a hella cool commercial. I am sold! <3

  51. 51 lovepark


    That was so weird in a bizarre yet hilarious way. I love Ryu Seung-ryong and am so happy he’s getting so much love and recognition lately. He totally makes the commercial with his deep voice and straight face. I wonder how long it took them to film. I would have probably been cracking up in the background and kicked out of the set.

  52. 52 Willow

    Oh…mygod. I died laughing. I wanna see bts of this!

  53. 53 Porcelain

    Going to my local K-mart and see if they sell this brand. Lol… Slow-mo oppa so hawt!!!

  54. 54 asianromance

    OMG! His pose when he cracked that egg! LOL!

  55. 55 Noelle

    HAHAHA! Sorry but all I thought was eww when he blew the garlic in the pot because I saw spit spray EVERYwhere. So dumb you can’t help but love it.

  56. 56 BibiRouge

    OMG >< !!! My life is over 'cause I just died laughing !!!
    And then he pulled out that axe and cut the green onions !!!

  57. 57 Lord of the Things

    Haha I saw Namja Ramyun in the shop the other day and was like, ‘that’s a strange thing to sell along gender lines…’

    But now it somehow makes sense (in that it doesn’t at all)

  58. 58 bobbie

    I keep thinking how many ramyun slurps he had to do to get that ramyun to hit his face just so. I’m thinking that’s a lot of ramyun.

  59. 59 rynea

    Only one commercial and I’m thinking, should I watch all his movies? Oh man, I’m a chicken.

  60. 60 kimchi pop

    oh no.
    it is midnight
    i watched this
    i want some ramyun
    i’m out of ramyun
    only comfort:no ramyun bloat of the face in the a.m.
    still want some ramyun. bad.

  61. 61 hui ting

    omg I can’t stop laughing. SO SEXY. SO COOL. OMG I LOVE THIS.

  62. 62 Lilly

    Going to buy some. Have to now. Image is seared into brain.

  63. 63 Esmee

    Jesus Christ !

  64. 64 Laurita

    awkward. SO AWKWARD..

  65. 65 Jang

    Cool commercial. This ramyun is actually really yum. Seen it in the shops (before this advert), wondered why it is for men (only), so tried it out of curiouslty… it’s got a really fragrant garlic and beef flavour that the regular Shin ramyun or even Yeul ramyun lacks. *thumbs up*

  66. 66 Orion

    This CF is nothing short of epic. I haven’t laughed like this with an ad for a while. Shekshi manliness parodied in the best manner. The noodle slurping climax was just to die for. Ahahahaah.

  67. 67 pillowhead

    It’s a great commercial. I’m totally gonna go eat some ramen right now.

  68. 68 ck1Oz

    Okay I am buying it when I go to my Korean grocer next week.

  69. 69 pillowhead

    what is ” ma poosh pa” mean? 50 seconds in.

    • 69.1 ys

      It’s ‘mat bo go shippuh’– I want to taste it. Then, ‘the taste I can’t wait for.’

  70. 70 neliq

    WOW! That’s one sexy man. I’m like the chicken. I’ll give him all my eggs if he wants them.

  71. 71 goldeng

    i just have to say: coolest and sexiest cf ever!!!

  72. 72 rheina07

    okay. I need RAMYUN RIGHT NOW.

  73. 73 Julia

    Can anyone translate what he says in Korean? I caught beef … man ramen … and something that sounds like delicious.

  74. 74 Damselfly H

    O.M.G. I think I’m not going to recover from that any time soon. And I just saw the 4-minute trailer/MV for History of a Salaryman yesterday.

  75. 75 ilikemangos

    “And… did he just seduce that egg out of that chicken?”
    LOL you ladies are hilarious.
    Makes me wanna go eat ramen.

  76. 76 Ennayra

    now i want to eat ramen

  77. 77 koreamom

    now we have to decide, do we want the ramyun or the guy making it? omg! this is hilarious and so sexy at the same time. who thought noodles could look this good?!

  78. 78 Akiness

    OMG, I had tears coming out of my eyes before I even saw the clip, all thanks to your comments. I love you guys. And the sexy man-beast in the commercial too, of course. :)

  79. 79 Lilian

    Hahaha…..spicy ramyun for the man. What if they had a similar one for women? Who would be the best actress for the commercial then? Hmm….

  80. 80 the68monkey

    I totally need a Namja Ramyun t-shirt with Ryu Seung-ryong on it. . . and that hussy of a chicken.

  81. 81 crazykel

    I don’t always eat ramyun, but when I do, I eat Namja Ramyun…that’s what I thought while watching this!!! Oh Ryu Seung-ryong, I love you so much!!!

  82. 82 haaruka

    Namja Ramyun. Get.
