The dish originated from the word Zhajiangmian 炸江面 from Shandong China . Zhajiangmian means Fried Sauce Noodles and can be traced as far back as the Joseon Dynasty. When Joseon opened the Incheon Port , the chinese from shandong moved to a town in Incheon (now known as Incheon China Town ). They opened Chinese Restaurants and adapted the traditional zhajiangmian such that the koreans would enjoy it too. Jajangmyeon was then a dish enjoyed by the working class. After the korean war, korean Chunjang was invented. With korean chunjang, caramel was added and hajangmyeon became a completely different food from zhajiangmian.
