When Choi Tae-yeon opened her restaurant 20 years ago, dog meat was a good business in South Korea. Eating dog meat is effectively taboo among younger, urban South Koreans, and pressure on the government to outlaw the practice from animal rights activists has been mounting. They didn't treat us who sell bosintang (dog meat soup) as humans," she told AFP. "I like having dog meat when I drink because I don't get a hangover the next day," said an elderly customer at another dog meat restaurant, who gave only his surname Jang. "Chicken, pigs, cows are all living animals -- I oppose only banning dog meat," he said.
