'Jap' means 'mix, collect, and many' and 'chae' means vegetables.
In other words, it is a name for a variety of vegetables, but these days instant noodles are in japchae with vegetables.
Japchae was first introduced at a royal banquet during the reign of King Gwanghaegun, the 17th century Joseon Dynasty.
A man named Lee Chung, who was favored by Gwanghaegun, used to make special food and offer it to the royal court
There is a record that the king waited for the food from Lee Chung's house to be served at every meal.
Among them, Japchae was the food that captivated the taste buds of the king.
Japchae means mixed vegetables.
Therefore, there was no instant noodles in the early Japchae.
The modern type of japchae with instant noodles began in 1919 with the establishment of a instant noodle factory in Sariwon, Hwanghae Province, and began to be eaten in earnest after 1930.
