In Seoul and Los Angeles, activists held the bodies of deceased dogs to represent the one million dogs brutally killed every year in the dog meat trade. The protests were held on Bok Nal, the first of three non-consecutive days which mark the hottest days of the Korean summer. During this time the consumption of dog meat increases exponentially, as the dog meat soup called Boshintang is consumed in the belief that it cools the body.

On June 20th, 2018 Korean MP Pyo Chang-Won proposed a bill that would make the slaughtering of dogs for meat fundamentally illegal under S. Korea's Animal Protection Act. If it passes, MP Pyo's bill will be a severe blow to the country's dog meat trade.
