    Korean instant noodles sold in record amounts overseas in the first six months of this year.

    The Korea Customs Service said Monday that instant-noodle exports rose 5.8 percent on-year in the first half to US$319.7 million, beating the previous record of $302.8 million set in the same period of last year.

    China was the biggest importer with $68.13 million, followed by the U.S. with $37.3 million, Japan with $33 million, Taiwan with $16.2 million and the Philippines with $12.1 million.

    The actual amount of Korean instant noodles eaten overseas is probably twice as big, as the figure does not include those made by market leader Nongshim, Paldo and other companies at their factories abroad.
