Why translate it to "ramen" when it's actually read as "ramyeon"? I think it'd be helpful to get used to Korean culture while learning the language

I thought the English translation was "instant noodles" but it was marked wrong...

Agreed. Ramen is Japanese style, Korean style is ramyeon. Ramyeon should be acceptable

Ramen(ramyeon) is soup with noodles. Not just noodles.

So will "noodle soup" be accepted?

"ramyeon" is not accepted...this is dumb. There is a difference between ramen and ramyeon...I know most people have said it, but some said it was accepted now, but it didn't accept my answer this time...

Ramyeon and Ramen are two very different kinds of food.

Even Koreans say '라멘[Ramen]' when referring to the Japanese food "ラーメン".

I love that there is an exclamation mark after 라면 but not after so many other single words in lessons. It shows the true importance of ramen. Ramen is the best!
