Do Koreans eat cats and dogs?

Americans seem really interested in this question.

Koreans do not eat cats. 

Korean men sometimes eat dogs.  (I have yet to meet a Korean woman who eats dog).  It is not for sale in the grocery store.  You have to go to a special restaurant.  As far as I know (i.e. this is very unofficial and purely my opinion)  the older generations eat dog more than the younger generation.

In cases like this, it is important to remember that Korea is a different culture.  If you are reading this and are making judgements, remember that you did not grow up in Korea.  You are seeing this from a Western standpoint.  As I have said many times and will continue to say: It is not good, it is not bad, it is just different.
