  9. Yes they do. It is a sort of delicacy. However, they don’t serve your pets they breed dogs much like chickens and serve them in restaurants. One of the most popular dog dishes is boshintang 보신탕 which is soup made out of dog. It is actually very healthy and tastes incredible. (I’ve only tried it once. It’s good but I just can’t get over the fact that it is dog soup).
    It isn’t disgusting. Would you call eating hamburgers disgusting because it’s got beef in it?
