Jjapaguri from the Movie ‘Parasite’ – Here’s How to Make it

by My Onni You

Here is how to make the delicious Korean noodle from the movie ‘Parasite’, the Jjapaguri which is a combination of Jjapagetti and Neoguri.

Jjapaguri which means ram-don in English from the award-winning movie Parasite (Gisaengchung, 기생충) has gained popularity after it was seen in the said movie.

I know I am a little late to write about this but honestly I have joined the bandwagon of making the Jjapaguri many times already. It’s very easy to prepare and quite delicious. To make it, you just need two different kinds of Korean noodles, Jjapagetti and Neoguri.  I also followed the recipe and instructions from the Nongshim Korean website.


  • 1 pack Jjapagetti (짜파게티)
  • 1 pack Neoguri (너구리)
  • 8 ounces tender beef (cut in cubes, bite-size)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil or other cooking oil
    *But I used butter to make the beef more tasty


1. Cut the beef into cubes bite-size pieces and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a medium-sized pot put 4 cups of water and wait until it boils.
2. Heat a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil, other cooking oil or butter.  Cook all sides to the slightly less than preferred doneness.
3. When the water boils, add the noodles and the vegetable mix from the packets and continue boiling for about 3 minutes. Do not overcook the noodles.
4. Remove noodles from the water (but do not throw the water) and transfer to the pan with the beef. Pour one cup of the reserved water over the noodles. Cook in medium heat. Add the Jjapagetti sauce and Neoguri sauce.
5. About one minute, stir everything well until the sauce is evenly distributed. Add more reserved water if needed. Turn the heat off.
6. Put the oil from Jjapagetti and mix again. Best serve with kimchi or pickled radish. 

I made it!

Honestly looks so good!! Problem is, I don’t have an access to a Korean store right now for the ingredients. So probably hmmm after lockdown?

The moment I saw the mother make the Jjapaguri, I instantly became curious about it. Madali lang pala haha! 🙂 Thank you for this! 🙂

I watched the Parasite and first time to hear Jjapaguri since I worked in a Korean kitchen before. Thanks for this really quick procedure!

Nacurious din ako actually nung napanood ko then it went out on the news na ganyan pala un haha

This post made me crave! I have planned to buy this type of noodle but ita always out of stock. Will definitely try this out as soon as I am able to buy one. Love the movie as well!

I love Chapagetti, and it’s so sad that we can’t find any from the grocery these days. I would super love to try this, even if I haven’t watched parasite yet. Is this spicy though? That’s would be a bonus!!

My Onni You April 25, 2020 - 1:48 pm

The chapagetti is not but when mixed as Japaguri it will be a little spicy.

I want to try this. After ECQ, I hope I can find that brand in Korean stores here in the Philippines.

My Onni You May 2, 2020 - 9:09 am

I think you’ll find it there after ECQ since it’s been trending too.

Hazel Salcedo May 2, 2020 - 2:09 am

Yes I saw this from the movie Parasite, too! Actually I was curious when I saw it because it looks so delicious. Now I need to know where I can find a Korean store that can deliver during this ECQ so I can recreate this too! 🙂

My Onni You May 2, 2020 - 9:08 am

Good news! Meron na din siya nasa cup. It’s more easier to prepare.

Wow this looks so good! Will go to a Korean grocery tomorrow to buy the ingredients! Thanks!
