Chapagetti (Korean: 짜파게티) is a brand of ramyeon produced by Nongshim in South Korea since 1984. Chapagetti is the first instant noodle product to resemble jajangmyeon in South Korea and is the second highest-selling brand of instant noodles in South Korea. Its name is a portmanteau of jajangmyeon (which is also romanized as chajangmyŏn) and spaghetti. In 2012, the sales of Chapagetti reached 159.5 billion won with 88% of market share.

In popular cultureEdit
In the Academy Award-winning South Korean film Parasite, a dish called Chapaguri (짜파구리) is cooked by one of the characters, which is a mix of Chapagetti and Neoguri. The English version of the film calls this "ram-don", an expression created by the translator, and the footage shows packages labelled in English "ramyeon" and "udon" to highlight to English speakers how the name was created. Nongshim, which manufactures both brands of noodle, published an "official" recipe for Chapaguri on their YouTube channel.
