Thin wheat flour noodles

Somyeon 소면

These very thin wheat noodles are used in both hot and cold dishes but especially in kongguksu. Keep them in the pantry and look for them in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese grocery stores.

    With difficulty I deciphered the Korean letters (using an online hangul chart) on a random bag of noodles I bought at the Korean store: it says GUKSU SOMYEON. Can I use these only for Kongguksu like it says on this page or can I put them in Jajangmyun, Jam Pong, etc. as well? Because I don’t really like the idea of cold noodles (not to mention it’s winter here!).
