4.
Remove foil and increase oven temperature to 450°F, then roast until fat is golden, about 20 minutes more.
5.
Cool 30 minutes, then chill, uncovered, until cold, about 1 hour.
6.
To Assemble: Layer sliced pork belly, kimchi, toasted sesame seeds and scallions inside of your freshly steamed buns.
