Nongshim Co.'s premium jjajangmyeon (noodles in black bean sauce) product Jjawang ranked second in terms of sales in South Korea's ramyeon (instant noodles) market in May, only about a month after its release, market research firm said Wednesday.

Jjawang and four other Nongshim products swept the top five spots in May's ramyeon sales list, Nielsen Korea said. Shin Ramyeon retained its No. 1 spot, and Anseong Tangmyeon, Jjapageti and Neoguri placed third, fourth and fifth, respectively. 

As a result, Nongshim had a whopping 61.5 percent share in the ramyeon market in May, up 0.6 percentage point from a month earlier, Nielsen Korea said.
