Running Man EP249 Film Site: Jjajangmyeon (짜장면)

Following my last post on Running Man’s Episode 249 featuring After School’s UEE, I’m back with more filming site of that particular episode. In the episode, the cast of Running Man are split into 5 locations to taste different types of Jjajangmyeon (짜장면). I’ll be sharing with you the 5 restaurants they went.

Song JiHyo and Kim JongKook chose the White Jjajangmyeon (백짜장). The usual dish is made with black bean sauce. The store they visited doesn’t make this with any black bean sauce at all. You can now eat Jjajangmyeon on days you are wearing white! No more fear of black stains on your white shirt.


The restaurant is located in Korea Chinatown at Incheon, 1hour ride away from Seoul.

If you have been watching recently ended drama “A Girl Who Sees Smell”, you might noticed that the male and female lead, Park YooChun and Shin SeKyung visited this place in episode 7.

The restaurant looks majestic.

Operating Hours: 11am – 9:30pm Daily

The restaurant Lee KwangSoo and UEE chose does not require you to use chopsticks to eat Jjajangmyeon. Jjajangmyeon is made in shapes different from the conventional long noodles. The particular dish KwangSoo and UEE ordered is Seafood Jjajangmyeon (해물수제비짜장), selling at 5,000KRW.


The restaurant seems quite famous, being featured in KBS broadcasting programmes since year 2012. Guess the boss of the restaurant probably needs to have a new banner made to include in year 2015.

Haha was left alone to eat his Red Jjajangmyeon. I’m guessing this is like the dry version of Jjampong (짬뽕).  This restaurant has many franchises throughout Korea and the leads in the Running Man episode isn’t glaring enough. I spent 4 hours trying to locate the exact shop Haha went ㅠㅠ

The above picture was lifted off their website. So I guess the picture below is more realistic of what you’d get when you order the dish. This bowl costs 5,500KRW.

Our National MC Yoo JaeSuk and comedian Kim JoonHyun had the Jjajangmyeon that requires usage of a hammer. The way Kim JoonHyun eats look super delicious. I’m going to rank this as second on this list that I want to try. This Seafood Jjajangmyeon costs 10,000KRW.

Kang Gary and Ji SukJin picked the Jjajangmyeon on Hot Plate. This appeals to me the most, out of the 5 dishes.


A close up of the dish. This Seafood Jjajangmyeon on Hot Plate (해물철판짜장) is priced at 14,000KRW for 2pax.

You can add on a side order of the Sweet Sour Pork with Korean Rice Cake (인절미 탕수육) at 12,000KRW. Before Gary and Sukjin sat down, they were already asking if they could add on this dish as well. It looks so yummy!

This restaurant is quite easy to find. Ride the Seoul Subway Line 8 and get off at Moran Subway Station (모란역), exit 7. The restaurant will be on your right, at second floor. I’ve circled the entrance and the restaurant name in the picture below.

The restaurant signboard in case you missed it.

    Thank you so much for this Blogpost. I have been researching about jjajmyeong in Korea and I’ve noted the hammer and hot plate that I definitely wanted to try when I was watching running man. Then I came across your blog post and it’s the best thing ever!
    I just wanted to ask whether you would know the opening hours for the hot plate jjajamyeong. Because I’ve been googling it, and I cn’t seem to find it. I’m planning to go there for dinner, and I don’t want to be disappointed travelling there and it isn’t open.
