Samyang Kimbab Exists & Adventurous S’poreans Are Going Crazy Over It


Samyang’s fiery instant noodles have been enrapturing the attention of spicy-lovers for a long time, and you don’t even have to look far to figure out why.

With its trademark fiery spiciness, complete with easy convenience and the magic of instant noodles, Samyang has successfully won over a generation of spice lovers. Indefinitely.


Yet the fact remains that; despite all of Samyang’s success and ardent fans, nothing’s gonna last forever. Popular as they are, fiery hot as their noodles may be, it’s only gonna be a matter of time before they fizzle out. 

Like all the good things in life.

And perhaps, perhaps, that’s why Samyang’s latest move isn’t just salvational, but downright genius.

If it’s getting old, why not ramp it up by changing things up?

The Samyang Kimbap

Yes, folks, you didn’t read that wrong. Samyang has a new flavour in town, and this time it comes in the form of a Korean rice roll:

An honest to goodness Samyang Kimbap.

Rice drenched in buldak-bokkeum-myeon-flavour is enwrapped around shredded carrots, omelette and a hefty chunk of chicken luncheon meat, with a strip of crispy seaweed holding everything in place and in the process, constituting a perfectly filling ready-to-eat meal.

And lest you’re wondering, it looks just as good as it sounds.

Like legit.

Does anyone hear that cannon firing in the distance? Oh, wait it’s just my stomach.

Keen to try it out?

Now I know what you’re thinking:

I wanna try it out! I wanna try it out so bad!

Well, if you’re based in Singapore or Malaysia right now, I regret to inform you that the kimbap won’t be available at any local stores just yet, as the product was only recently launched over in South Korea.


Yeah, sad huh?

But hey, don’t lose hope just yet, because there’s a way to procure what you need (without violating any laws in the process):

Indeed, if you’re too anxious and eager to wait for the kimbap’s official release date in local regions, Airfrov’s your destination.

Simply head over to the international seller-and-buyer system and submit a request for them to bring some to Singapore; once enough requests have been made, Airfrov will designate an employee to bring the Samyang Kimbap right from South Korea to your doorstep.


Yes, it’s that easy. I think.

As of right now, current bidding starts at $6, though there are fans evidently eager to pay way more for the exclusive treat.

Whether you wish to join this ever-increasing price war, however, will be entirely up to you. Though if it was me…

I think this just looks way too good not to be tried asap.
