Eating dog has been part of traditional South Korean culture for centuries. However, its popularity has fallen dramatically in recent years. According to a 2020 poll by the International Humane Society, the vast majority of respondents said they have never consumed dog meat, and restaurants that serve dog meat are dwindling in South Korea. Nearly 60% of respondents were in favor of banning dog meat altogether.
Currently, dog meat is neither legal nor explicitly banned in South Korea. But in November of 2021, the South Korean government announced they are considering outlawing dog meat consumption.
South Korean food typically has lots of salt and lots of hot spices, which might be difficult for those of you trying to cut back on sodium intake, or anyone who can't handle spicy food.
Generally, when you take a seat at a restaurant, you'll be able to convince the waiter to ask the chef to put less spices and salt on your selected dish.
