Naeng Myun - Cold Buckwheat Noodles

Using the same buckwheat noodles for bi-bim naeng myun, this dish is eaten with cold soup and packets of soup base came with the noodles. The ingredients for the soup base are salt, red pepper, garlic, ginger, roasted sesame, onion, mustard oil and msg(of course). Suggested garnishings are hard boiled eggs, cucumber, pear, sliced boiled beef and mustard oil. I have cooked with what ever i have.

Is it really cold? Well, i'm caught by the name cold noodles because usually noodles are served hot.
