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.
