I wouldn't have known about this one had it not been for commenter Kory, who pointed me to the Korea Times article saying that Nongshim Group founder Shin Choon-ho recently died of "a chronic illness" at the age of 91.  The Nongshim brand is hugely popular among Koreans; as the article notes, it's responsible for such products as Shin Ramyeon (my favorite brand of Korean ramyeon), Jjapaghetti (also spelled "Chapaghetti"), and Neoguri (pronounce it "gnaw-goo-ree" with a Spanish "r").  Along with all the Ottogi products I buy, I also purchase plenty of Nongshim products.
