If there's anything that we're sure to have in common with K-pop idols, it's our love for instant ramen. Whether it comes in a pack or in a cup, our pantries are always stocked up with our favorite noodles. It's handy for mornings on-the-go, all-nighters with your roommate during finals week, or even as a late night snack during an e-numan with friends.

But our instant ramen doesn't have to be the same all the time! To spice up our cup of noodles, we looked through some of the best and most interesting instant ramen hacks from our favorite K-pop idols. Here in this list are NCT Dream Chenle's "Special Ramyeon Recipe," Red Velvet Yeri's "Jajangmyeon with Chojang," and BTS Jungkook's Spicy Ramen (the right way). Check out the recipes and our ratings for each of them in the videos below!

In his recipe, Chenle proves that he's not nicknamed a chef for nothing! His recipe make the noodles taste more unique with just two ingredients: tomatoes and a spicy soup base.


Yeri's recipe was built for bigger appetities. It makes use of a lot more additional ingredients aside from the Chojang that make the instant black bean noodles an entirely different dish.

On the other hand, it seems like simplicity is key for Jungkook's recipe. Although he didn't add any special ingredient, he does have a ton of tips and techniques to keep in mind in order to make his spicy ramen.
