My parents inherited this recipe when we adopted my Korean sister. As odd as it sounds, it's surprisingly good. I prefer it without the egg or sauces and just drizzle it with butter and my dad eats it with egg and tabasco sauce. It's a matter of personal taste.

I added 1 Tablespoon soy sauce while cooking and a dash of garlic powder. I think that the fried egg is what really brought it over the top.

Nice! I remember this from my 18 month tour in Korea back in the early 80's. Keeping it simple as I recall, I made this for my family and it was an instant hit. Add the soy, garlic, crushed red peppers to your liking, but prepare as described and it is orignal. Nicely done!
