Bring a pot of water up to boil. Add-in a few drops of cooking oil into the water. (While you wait for it boil, set aside some cold water in a cup)
Once water comes to a boil, place the Somyeon noodles in. The pot will start to foam up. When it does, add a drizzle of cold water. The foam will settle back down. Then it will rise up again - add cold water again and repeat this process 3-4 more times. After a total of 4-5 times, the noodles should be ready. You should check by mashing a few noodles in between your fingers - they should be soft.
If they're cooked, turn off the heat and drain the noodles immediately. Run the noodles under cold water and cool them down completely. Leave them in a strainer and drip-off excess water.
Place the chopped Kimchi into the spicy marinade. Give it a thorough mix.
In a separate bowl, add your cold noodles. Then add a few pieces of the chicory lettuce. Then place-in a few spoonfuls of the spicy sauce. Add-to-taste! Then use your chopsticks and toss them in the sauce. Get everything evenly coated. Add more sauce if you need - the more sauce, the tastier!
Garnish the noodles with cucumber strips and an hardboiled egg on the side.
You don't want your noodles to sit for too long! So quickly grab a frying pan and place it on medium-high heat. Once hot, place the pork belly pieces on. Cook the pork belly until both sides get a nice crispy edge to them. Season with salt and pepper. Then eat with the noodles --> Bon Appetit!
