Insights, Strategy & the Idea
HOMEPLUS is one of the largest supermarket chains in Korea. They were about to launch their cup noodle brand and needed a quick way to promote it.

Creative Execution
We thought of disposable chopsticks that come with cup noodles. To be more accurate, chopstick wrappers which become meaningless trash once peeled off. With this wrapper, the 3-minute waiting time before cup noodles transforms into fun origami time. You can fold it however you like and voila! There's your very own, unique chopstick holder. And while folding and unfolding, people naturally zero in on the HOMEPLUS logo the whole time.

Results and Effectiveness
It has been a huge hit! Not just amongst teenagers, but with all generations. The 'click' rate of the official HOMEPLUS website has multiplied by 10 times. Consumers started to create and upload their own methods of chopstick origami on their blogs and facebook pages. It took only 3 months after launch for sales to reach a 200% increase. And now, HOMEPLUS Cup Noodle has become a household name to many people!
