Days of Bok, Boknal Festival

In Yulin, China en Boknal, Korea worden jaarlijks heel veel honden live geslacht op gruwelijke wijze, door langdurige mishandeling van het lichaam zou het vlees namelijk lekkerder smaken. Ze worden verbrand en geslagen of levend gekookt om ze op te eten.
This Korean costum of eating hot meals in hot weather is known as i-yeol-chi-yeol (이열치열), which literally means ‘to relieve heat with heat’.

Samgye-tang (삼계탕; 蔘鷄湯)

Samgyetang is a warm soup for hot summer days. It is especially popular to eat this chicken soup on sambok (삼복) days, which are three distinct days of the lunar calendar—Chobok (초복), Jungbok (중복), and Malbok (말복)—commonly among the hottest and most sultry summer days in Korea.[3][4] Eating samgyetang on these days is believed to promote health.
