I think there are 3 kinds of attitudes to dog that I have experienced. The outright rage and disgust of eating a sentient, friendly, loyal and beautiful animal, most of these people are eating some kind of meat product that was slaughtered in the most disgusting of conditions when they say this mind you, spitting tiny fragments of battery farmed chicken over me, while simultaneously swearing on the Bible that Koreans eat dog 3 times a day without fail, that every restaurant in the country sells dog meat and that you can in fact go into any pet shop and buy a dog to take home, in a doggy bag perhaps.
The next kind are the newcomers to Korea, usually open and wise enough not believe these silly rumours. They see no dogs for sale in their local home plus and no pictures of dogs wrapped in kim in their local kimbap place. They do see those shitty little 'tea cup' dogs in a lot of handbags though and so they report home that, contrary to stereotypes in their home country, Koreans in fact don't eat dog at all!
Then there are the rest, the people who can at least read Korean, never mind speak enough of the language to notice that while restaurants selling dog meat don't litter the streets, they are far from hidden. A little bit of time invested in learning to read Korean pays off in many ways, one of which is being able to read that dog meat restaurants are somewhere between everywhere and nowhere.
Maybe we should all go out and eat a dog anyway because then we can drive our gas guzzling SUVs around guilt free, as this link proves!
If only this guy had known. Imagine the defence solicitor putting that to the jury.

This video shows that dog meat has been eaten in the UK very recently too.
