A very spicy Korean ramen. The Chinese character ("Hanja") "shin" actually means "hot and spicy". Since that Chinese character isn't used often (and young Koreans can read Hangul a lot better than Chinese characters), Nong-shim, the company producing Shin Ramyon had to run TV spots explaining the meaning of the name. Other possible interpretations of the sound "Shin" would have included "god" or "shoe".
