How to Make Korean Style Ramen

Ramyun is the right name instead of Ramen in Korea. The origin of Ramen started from China as a historical background but it is more popular in Japan.

The first instant ramen had been manufactured from Japan around 1960. After that, Korean company,such as Samyan introduced instant Ramyun from 1963 and Korean style of Ramen is getting lots of hit current days.

There are too many different types of instant ramen but the instant ramen over here is kind of hybrid that it has be cooked little bit more time with pot than just adding hot boiled water into a disposal type of cup or bowl.

The reason of popularities as a Korean Ramen might be the taste of soup. It is very unique to other countries’ instant noodle soup. It is more spicy and hotter and less greasy as a simple description.

The thickness of noodle is various as their brands or styles. Also, the color of soup is various but the majority of Korean style ramen is close to Red color. Before you try to taste it, you can easily guess about the level of hot and spicy already.

This Ramyun will make you warm or sweat in cold winter time without any doubt. In the U.S. ramen is a quick and inexpensive favorite among college students and office workers.

This instant dish is well developed so that easy to turn into a satisfying meal with the addition of meat and veggies.
There are two big brands of Ramyun in Korea which are Samyang and Nongshim.

If you prefer to have thicker noodle, then you should choose a Ramen from Nongshim brand.

Now, here is the simple and easy way of cooking Korean style Ramen in less than 10 minutes. Or you can find an instruction from package of ramen too.
However, you can be more creative to cook this instant noodle to be a nice food at any time.

– Steps to cook a Korean style of Ramen

It has been more than 10 years since a large Korean-style Jjim-Jil Bang was established in the United States.

When King Spa opened in Chicago, I remember going there often when I missed Korea.

We had a great time with my children, lying on a comfortable sofa, watching a movie, and eating Naengmyeon or Samgyetang at a food court, and red bean Bingsu in the summer.

In addition to Chicago, there is King Spa & Waterpark in Dallas, which will soon open in Virginia as well. An outdoor swimming pool is expected here.

King Spa offers a variety of services such as facial massage and exfoliation service(Scrub), full body acupressure, foot massage, V-Steam Herb(WORMWOOD STEAM SITZ) for women, and chair massage at the lounge. Also, there is a newly launched CBD Oil Massage.

Earning Korean Air Miles in USA – Eat at a restaurant and earn points

When traveling abroad or traveling in the United States, I think the most frequent hotel chains are Marriott. Of course, there are many Hilton hotels, but if you are planning a trip to Korea, you can find many Marriott hotels nationwide, including Seoul. Hyatt hotels are also very satisfactory as luxury hotels, but the disadvantage is that there are not many hotels.

The US Bank SKYPASS credit card is one of the best credit cards for collecting Korean Air miles, but there are several ways to collect without a credit card other than the miles earned using a SKYPASS or Bonvoy credit card.

Go to Eat Around Town by Marriott Bonvoy Dining Program website and register as a member. It uses the same account as the Bonvoy website(

Sign up, register at least one credit or debit card, and within your first 60 days dine at a participating restaurant and pay with your linked card to earn:

– 1,000 bonus points the first time you spend $30 or more
– 2,000 bonus points the second time you spend $30 or more
– 3,000 bonus points the third time you spend $30 or more

How to use is as follows.

The first thing you do is sign up, and when you log in, you will find Manage Cards on the left menu. All you have to do is enter your credit card number there.

No name, expiration date, or security code is required. In other words, you can use any card owned by your family other than your own card. You can use the card after eating.

However, you can receive points only when you use them at restaurants that are affiliated with this program, and you should check the list of restaurants on the website.(

And some restaurants don’t offer it all week, so you get points if you use it on the day of the week.

Generally, 3 or 4 days after using the card, the details are displayed in Recent Activity. If 10 days have passed and it does not appear on the list, you can appeal using the contact form.

When filling out the form, you must upload a receipt and enter the date of visit and amount used, so make sure not to forget the restaurant receipt.

Missing a reward? Contact us if it’s been over 10 days since your purchase.

Also, UA (United Airlines), AA (American Airlines), and Delta Airlines have the same dining program. Sign up for the program according to the miles you want to collect.

Just to be careful, if you go to the other airline sites below, you will see that they all use the same rewards network, so if you register a credit card once and then use the same card for another airline’s dining program, the first registered card will be automatically deleted. Use a different credit card for each.

A delicious Korean Ribs(Galbi : 갈비) restaurant “K-BBQ” located in Palatine, suburb of Chicago, USA

I went on a Sunday evening and it was full and there were no seats available. The tables were widely arranged and there were many people serving, so the order was processed right away.

This place cooks meat on induction rather than charcoal or gas fire, but the heat is not weak at all, so there was no problem in grilling meat.

The meats I ordered were 꽃갈비살/Boneless Galbi (price is $36.99) and 양념갈비/Marinated Galbi (price is $32.99). As shown in the picture below, the meat seemed to be of the highest quality, and the thickness and taste were also very good.

Rice and miso soup included in the price were also delicious. At some restaurants, I was disappointed that the stew was not included even when I ordered the Galbi, but I was very satisfied that this place was served in a bowl of soup.

After finishing the Galbi, I ordered 물냉면/Naengmyeon and 비빔냉면/Bibim Naengmyeon. There was no meat in the Naengmyeon, but the Naengmyeon was very tasty. I recommend 물냉면/Naengmyeon rather than 비빔냉면/Bibim Naengmyeon.

The address of the K-BBQ is 1925 Plum Grove Rd, Palatine, IL 60067, and the phone number is (847) 485-7072 and is open from 4pm to 10pm except Mondays closed. (Open 4 – 10PM, Tuesday to Sunday)

Watching “Squid Game” Korean drama series on Netflix

In recent years, starting with the “Kingdom” series, many movies and drama series made by Koreans have become very popular with people around the world through Netflix.

In a situation where I have never played a squid game or a sugar draw in any country other than Korea, the overall atmosphere seems to fall into this series by understanding the psychology of people who play in extreme conditions rather than seeing the game properly.

It is a simple game, but the game progress is bad luck, and the penalty given to the loser is the part that viewers can easily immerse themselves in in the fear of death. I think it’s getting a lot of popularity.

In Korea, when playing these games in the past and losing, they say “You’re dead…”. Of course, we just say ‘dead’ to those who lose in a non-real game situation.

But in this drama series, if you lose the game, you really die. In the United States, there is an expression “out” in games such as baseball, but in Korea, it is expressed as ‘dead’, which is a stronger word from the old days.

It is only curious whether these backgrounds are actually expressed in this drama.

As this drama continues to be extremely popular around the world, there are many negative reviews in Korea as opposed to its popularity.

As this drama continues to be incredibly popular around the world, there are many negative reviews in Korea, contrary to its popularity, due to its too intense sexual expressions and bloody brutality.

However, this drama is a fictional world that is not true.

In this fictional world, it’s ridiculous to put anything else on the expression of the writer or director.

Of course, criticism comes from a lot of interest, and if many people around the world watched it for themselves and gave it a good score, I think it’s a well-made drama series.

In addition, Gong Yoo, who is widely known for his lead role in Train to Busan, appeared in the first and last episodes, adding to the fun of the drama.
