Where did the dough flake soups go?

Koreatown favorite Arirang, known for its dough flake and noodle soups, closed up shop rather quietly sometime this summer. Tucked away on the third floor of a building on 32nd Street, the restaurant was a favorite of David Chang and many, many Yelpers. A couple have posted wondering where their beloved Arirang has gone: "Does anyone know where Arirang moved to? I would commute for an hour just to have another bowl of the chicken dough flake and noodles," but there's no news to be found on whether the restaurant actually relocated, or whether it's just gone for good. Phone calls go unanswered, and a recent visitor reports that it looks like another restaurant is already moving into the space.
