Any Korean grocery stores like Galleria and H-Mart have them at ramen sections. Well... I wouldn't recommend Bull-Dak even to my Korean friends.

beware...
don't get the sauce on the outside of the lips.
small bites, no slurping.

Yeesh, you're acting like a girl who never tasted anything spicier than chili.
I practically eat tien tsin peppers out of the can.

Why do your peppers come in a can?

OP, you can create the same by adding red chilli powder to the soup.

All spicy ramens I've ever had weren't very hot. The people in the the video both said they couldn't take that much hot and both ate it most of it... how hot could this be?

I generally add Korean red pepper powder with ramen. Also veggies and an egg.

PM the guy who made the video.

Can't really make out the brand from watching it.

Oh god, I've had this exact brand and actually still have some in my pantry. Taste wise, I found the spice to be bearable. It's not too hard to finish the whole thing. But I regretted eating it because I had stomach pain for a long time afterwards due to capsaicin overload. Anyways, I got it at a korean supermarket on bloor street K-town.

I need to finish mine. Bought a 5 pack. Would using less of the sauce make it a bit more edible?

We have Korean ramen quite often, a variety of them including Neoguri (moderately spicy). Anyway, I decided to pick up a 5-pack of some super spicy ramen and give it a try for a change (it was a black bag and had peppers on fire drawn all over it). It wasn't soup-based but was saucy like Chapagetti... I was able to eat it without major problems, but I didn't like it. It was just spicy but wasn't tasty... And, if you got it on your lips, it'd just burn for an hour. But anyway, think you guys should buy one (don't buy five like me) and give it a try.

edit: oh, just saw the video now - that's the one I had, but in the bag form. I didn't even know they had chicken or octopus flavours - you can't even taste it since your mouth is numb.

I heard there's a better tasting one - have to find out which it is.

Picked up a pack of this ramen at H-mart out of curiosity after seeing this thread. Couldn't buy a single so had to buy a pack of 4 or 5.

Just ate one (with a fried egg). It was definitely the most spicy instant noodle I've had, but not the most spicy food I've had. I had no problem eating it all quickly, but I guess I cheated because I had a glass of milk at the ready. I also have a pretty high spice tolerance.

I think I'll use the sauce package to make dokkbokki next time.
