Almost every Western person knows that in Korea they eat dogs. This is generally one of the main stereotypes associated with the Koreans. A smaller number of people have heard that Koreans are afraid of cats. However, as a rule, this knowledge about the role played in the Korean culture by the four-legged pets that we are accustomed to is usually limited. Meanwhile, in reality, everything is somewhat more complicated: not all Korean dogs in the family are told to end their lives with soup kits, and cats gradually turn from heroes of frightening legends and horror films into a status attribute of a successful and advanced person. Dogs are eaten not only by Koreans. A dog is a ceremonial food in China and in parts of southeast Asia. Another thing is that the dog is food is not everyday. That is, talking about what you slipped dog-dog in the guise of pork – it’s about the same thing that you slipped sturgeon under the guise of cod.
