NYC Animal Rights Group Protests Korea’s Dog-Eating Culture

News via soompi.com

Reportedly, the group chose July 13 specifically to protest because it marks Chobok, the first day of Bok-nal (also known as the Three Dog Days of Summer). These three days are supposed to be the summers hottest and most humid days according to the lunar calendar, and Koreans attempt to combat the heat with a tradition of consuming hot stews, usually dog stew but also chicken stew.

The NYC Animal Battalion used pickets with pictures of dogs in cages being transported away on trucks along with words like South Korea stop this, Animal abuse cannot be justified with culture, Dogs are friends, not food, and Will you sell your best friend as dog meat for $70.

What are your thoughts? Do you think dog meat consumption should be respected as part of Korean culture, or do you think its animal abuse and should be stopped?

1. Poet Jung Ho-seung gives a lecture to local students at the Museum of Korean Literature. 2. Pamphlets introducing Korea"s major writers are shown last month at the museum. They were made by middle school students 3. A high school student gets to work as a daily literary curator at the museum, sharing the knowledge she has about Korea"s modern-day literature.

The program, titled "Humanities on the Road", started last month and will last until October. It provides guided tours to middle and high school students that sign up in advance. It is free of charge. As well as learning about the museum"s collection while on the tour, the students are provided with an opportunity to become a literary curator for the day. They study in advance what they want to share with their fellow students and then stand in front of the group to explain what they learned from Korean literature and how they choose to interpret a given text. The museum also provides an art program where participants can make and decorate their own books. The students can either write their own stories inside the embellished covers or can simply write down any memorable poems or parts of novels they have read. "We try to provide diverse educational programs through which the students can picture themselves being part of encouraging literary culture in the future generations", said Seo Young-ran chief curator of the museum.The museum is also working on digitalizing the works of Korean writers. Since this year celebrates the 70th anniversary of Korea"s liberation from Japanese colonial rule (1910-45), the museum decided to focus on writers who went, or were taken, to North Korea. For each writer, the museum has created a DVD introducing a brief summary of their life and an e-book including their major pieces. The completed DVDs are usually distributed to local literary museums, colleges, public libraries and teachers at schools. The museum is currently aiming to produce 1,500 DVDs this year by the end of November. The museum also encourages people to write in less popular formats, such as essays, rather than novels and poems. It established a literary award for essayists in 2011 to honor the founder of the museum, who wrote in this genre. Professor Kang Shin-joo of Yonsei University and literary critic Jeong Yeo-wool have been recipients of the prize."It"s an honor for us that those who received our award have now become more widely known in the literary field", said curator Seo.
