The dog-flying-girl ‘개풍녀’

September 16th, 2006 . by Matt

Since no other foreigner in the blogosphere has picked this up, I will write about it.

Koreans are outraged at the actions of the dog-flying-girl (개풍녀). The girl was filmed trying a puppy up to helium balloons, and then letting the dog fly. She has been criticised for cruelty to animals.

Read about the controversy on KBS news, and be sure to watch the video so you can see the puppy flying in the air.

    Wait a second…it’s OK to eat dogs, but not to fly them? Gimme a freaking break.

    She just needs a good spanking.

    Should also mention that the dog was retrieved from the air by the girl and is safe. But honestly…who cares :/.

    MarkA: What’s wrong with eating dogs over any other animal? Gimme a freaking break.

    torren, I don’t think MarkA has a problem with eating dog over any other form of meat, it ust seems a bit hypocritical when someone screams animal cruelty in this case, and then sits down for a meal of dog prepared by throwing boiling hot oil on the animal while still alive.

    Perhaps an individual who is upset about this will also be upset about treatment of dogs before eating them, or even the act of eating them in entirety, but it makes for a humorous contradiction none-the-less.

    Sorry, I don’t read Korean…

    What was she doing flying a puppy on balloons?

    R.S.P.C.A (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) will have a field day over this “dog flying” video.

    What’s wrong with eating dogs over any other animal? Gimme a freaking break.

    In most modern countries, dogs are man’s best friend. I certainly think its barbaric to eat such loyal animals.

    Throw boiling hot oil on the dog? Is that part of preparation? Seems like an unnecessarily cruel and contrived procedure if they’re just trying to kill it.

    Don’t understand how there’s still market for dogs over there. Or cats. Or ducks.

    I doubt individuals who are okay with having hot oil poured on living dogs intended for human consumption would complain about killing a puppy by suffocation/hypothermia for capitalist pursuits. Or maybe this wouldn’t get as much attention if it involved a mangy full-grown dog?

    Yeah, they reeled the puppy back to ground afterwards, but it’s only a matter of time before bunch of sociopaths copy this because they think it’d be great fun.

    Maybe she confused “dog fly” with “dog fry”.

    this is retarted. koreans act like they are living a freakin cartoon. I’m ashamed. see the expresssion on her face as the dog began to float in the air? she’s all like… “ohmmuh~~ ohttuhkae~!”….. wtf did you think would happen once you attatch 100 helium ballons to a puppy darling?

    and on topic of eating dogs, its a f*ckin animal. u have no problem eating a chicken, cow, buffalo, duck or rabit. but dogs are off limits cause the look cute when they’re puppies? yea, thats logical.

    Nice shorts on that girl. She could give a rise to my puppy anytime she wants.

    Aw, c’mon. Who hasn’t considered doing that at least once? Actually I think it would be really fun to do that with a midget.

    Darin, yes that is true, but I took the statement as a general term of any form of the consumption of dog meat. Don’t take it the wrong way though, for those I might nitpick about it on…I try to butt heads whenever people hypocritically point out another cultures eating habits. Very annoying thing that I got bugged about in the West. Also, it’s misleading to assume that the way you describe how it is prepared is the common form, although the S.K.’s claim the meat is illegal, many have shown that it can be found outer market butchershops and preperation of “dog soup” is similar to pho nam, although I am disdainfully aware that animal cruelty does occur in some cases.
