Buldak Spicy Ramen craze continues
 When Samyang Foods released Buldak Spicy Chicken Ramen in 2012, the company did not expect it would receive such explosive popularity from customers abroad -- especially in the YouTube community.

 “In the beginning, we developed the product targeting local spicy food lovers in the niche market,” Park Jung-seok, Samyang Foods’ marketing manager, told The Korea Herald.

 Buldak refers to grilled chicken marinated in super-spicy red chili paste. Its name translates to “fire chicken.” It remains unknown where the meat dish originated, but it became popular among South Koreans in the early 2000s.

 Upping the ante in the instant noodles market, Samyang announced in November its plan to build four more production lines by injecting 60 billion won ($56 million). Having successfully expanded its sales portfolio across the globe including the US, Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia, Samyang now plans to make an aggressive foray into the Halal market.
