    초복, 중복, 말복 are the hottest day of year.
    We celebrate these days by preparing for some food made by chickens or even dogs to rejuvenate the body and increase stamina.

    I was under the impression that 개고기 was more of a winter meal. At least that was what I was told in China. Is that wrong?

    What whatiam said is right. Dog meat is all season food only for some dog meat people. it is consumed mainly during summer, especially on 복날.
