Well it finally happened.
In between cured pig heads and bags of kimchi and men shouting watermelon prices and the biggest lobster I have EVER seen with claws the size of my face in this never ending maze of a market, I saw two stalls selling meat from a butchered animal that looked very familiar. I wandered closer to look at the sign: 개고기.
Yep. Dog meat.
No, I did not buy any. I did, however, buy kimchi from the neighboring stall.
Shop local, as they say.
Disclaimer 1: I have never seen a restaurant that has 개고기 on the menu and I eat out a LOT. It’s simply not common.
