A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Gyeongju’s dog meat demand.

Two searches on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) — one was for so-called “Health Centers,” which commonly sell dog elixirs and cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju), and the second one was for “dog meat restaurants” — resulted in dozens of “Health Centers” and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Gyeongju.
