Those are "No Brand" products, sold by e-mart (which is like a Wal-Mart superstore) in South Korea.

It's eerily similar to the No Name products sold in Canada, right down to the yellow labels with bold, black lettering. BuzzFeed Canada has reached out to Loblaw, makers of No Name, to find out if there's any official connection.

In any case, the No Brand product names are just as comically to-the-point as the No Name items Canadians know and love.
