Today, DOG meat lovers have eaten grilled puppy dogs to launch animal cruelty activists like Model Kim Basinger in South Korea.
At least 20 people joined the activists, who were eating dark meat and kimchi with chopsticks while demanding to eat puppies to be legal.
Currently, dog meat in South Korea is neither legal nor expressly prohibited.
On day one of the country's three "dog meat days", dozens of activists gathered near the National Assembly in Seoul, including the 65-year-old model.
According to a traditional calendar, today is the first of the three hottest days in South Korea.
Many believe that they have to eat dog meat or chicken soup to get the strength to beat the heat.
Some older people believe that dog meat increases sexual stamina.
Demonstrators set up imitation dog carcasses on a table to demonstrate their determination to end the cruel practice.
Mrs. Basinger, who was holding one of the carcasses, said: "You do not need your tears, they need your help.
"We must end this cruelty on this planet, we must help all suffering."
"END OF THIS INJURY"
Protesters held placards reading "How many millions must die before the dog meat ends?"
Farmers, raising dogs to sell to restaurants, brought the steamed meat, ate it with kimchi, and washed it with Fanta, which was only a few feet away.
Last year, a court in South Korea ruled against a farmer who kills dogs for food.
The owner of a dog farm in Bucheon near Seoul was convicted for violating building and sanitation rules and "killing animals without a legitimate cause".
He was fined around £ 2,000, a milestone for animal rights activists trying to stop dog meat around the world.

Dog meat restaurants are a dying business as younger people do not want to eat the animals.
Dogs are becoming more and more popular as pets, and a survey last year found that about 80 percent of South Koreans had not eaten dog meat in the past year.
But many people still refuse to ban dog meat because they believe it is the country that is bowing to Western pressure.
