Over 2 million dogs are brutally killed in South Korea every year.
That's over 5,000 dogs a day who get strangled, burned, electrocuted or beaten to death for their meat.
The South Korean government has accepted Animal Protection Laws which make animal torture illegal, but those laws have never been properly enforced in the country. The dog meat industry continues to thrive and the officials are reluctant and indifferent to ban it. Oh, sorry, except during the 1988 Seoul Olympics and 2002 FIFA Cup when dog meat restaurants were forced to shut down temporarily in fear of bad impressions of South Korea.
Although forbidden to advertise themselves on main streets or in English, over 6,000 restaurants today serve dog meat in South Korea. And they don't get closed down.
I wish I had known about this when I was taking Korean in school.
Almost perfect :D
I could have used this site about 10 days ago when selling some Korean stuff. Oh well. Better late than never.
Simply awesome. Now if only I could find the same kind of site for French and Italian.
This is a sweet page that will teaches you the proper pronuciation of the vowels and consonants in the Korean alphabet.
This is a very useful tool that nicely bridges the gap between learning a new alphabet and learning the pronunciation of that alphabet.
