Out of all the conglomerates, or ‘Jaebol’, in South Korea, Samsung must rank as the most famous; their products are common household items. It is also an extremely powerful company: when the Samsung Management speaks, the President of Korea will listen. How disappointing and shameful it is, therefore, that despite its wealth and influence, Samsung shows no interest in helping to fight the horrific and diabolic practice of dog and cat meat cruelty in their own country. These evil meat trades are a blight on their people and their homeland – for numerous reasons. So, why doesn’t Samsung feel any social responsibility to take action? Why are they content to do nothing to help end this abhorrence?

It’s time for Samsung to speak up and do their part to bring an end to this illegal and unethical practice of brutalizing and eating man’s best friends. Write to the management of Samsung today!

    I have no problem not purchasing Samsung products and telling people I know to do the same. I will ask people to post boycotting your products on Facebook and share with there friends and keep sharing until this dog cruelty and eating of these animals come to an end. I cherish my dog and many people do. I don’t believe any animal should have to endure such cruelty. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to be treated this way. I hope people in your company have a heart and will decide to put an end to this horrific treatment of dogs,

      Totally agree. I also always ask n the electronics shops if they have non-Korean and non-Chinede items even when I see they don’t. It leads to their question “Why don’t you want Korean/Chinese goods?” – thus they invite me to explain, and I do explain, and they listen carefully. Not everyone immediately shares my views, but they always tell the shop’s owner that there are people who seek non-Korean items. This will in general lead to more non-Korean goods on the shells and reduce Korean sales.

        I also boycott Samsung, Korean and Chinese products but will adopt your approach by asking for non Korean/Chinese products in future and hope it helps create more awareness around this most horrific dog meat trade .

    The sooner Samsung makes a stand against the horror show that is cat and dog consumption, the better for its image and that of South Korea. Please show that you are at least aware of this disgusting practice and publicly condemn it – your brand image will benefit and so will the lives of countless sentient companion animals.

    I’ve sent the following text:

    “I just want to make sure you’re aware of the international boycott of your trademark which has nothing to to with your products quality. More and more people learn about horrific dog meat trade in South Korea and think you have the power and moral due to at least claim loudly your company condemns this practice. When I look at your products I see 21st century’s here. When I look at your country I see 13th century. You cant eat everything that moves, torture animals and at the same time be respected in 21st century.

    recently I have changed my mobile samsung to Listo, not because of samsung was out of service, but because of this cruel trade of dog meat in South Korea ! Samsung and other korean companies tolerate this situation doing the blind eye !!! I see that as far as the money is at stake, nobody takes care about these poor dogs and cats !!! this situation is abominable !!! I boycott all stuff made in SK !!!

    I have a Samsung TV; was considering buying the same again someday since this one has worked so well. But not now, not since I learned of their indifference regarding Korea’s dog meat trade. What a horrendous trade, sadistic, totally without conscience, brutal, bloody, nightmarish in its wickedness. Anyone indifferent to that is surely not a good person. What a rotten shame that Samsung doesn’t care about those tortured dogs who die in the worst ways possible. Aside from that, I’m strictly vegan for 9+ years and know for a fact that we need ZERO slaughterhouses, can live perfectly well on all plant foods.

    My family and I boycott all Samsung products. We will never purchase or recommend any of their products ever if they cannot speak up about this horrendous dog and cat meat trade. A huge corporation with no heart and compassion.

    I am thoroughly disgusted with the situation in you country in how you treat dogs & cats with such blatent cruelty & brutality. There are few words I can use but to say that I too have & will continue to shun all SK produce. I will be changing my car this year but it will not buy from your country. Likewise phones , washing machine etc. This situation brings shame on your country & casts its shadow over your world wide electronic & corporate companies. You will see your sales go down & now you will know why. You produce reliable & good quality products but I & my family & friends will not purchase anything from SK until this abhorrent practice stops. Disgusting depraved & so totally unnecessary. If you as a company supported the ending of this disgraceful practice it may stop many thousands of animals – many stolen pets from being brutalised & inhumanely slaughtered in the future. No animals deserve this existence or treatment. The soul less people who carry out this slaughter are without compassion or conscience. please help to stop what is happening & bringing shame to your country & its people. This is not a civilised way to behave. Other countries have banned the practice, please help to do the same. Get a backbone.

    It has become a matter of honour not to purchase any product made by Samsung or any other product made in Korea or China. Both the Korean and the Chinese presidents brought shame to their countries by allowing this horrific and brutal industry to flourish. And it is not only innocent dogs and cats that suffers, it is all wild animals that are slowly but surely becoming extinct in their countries. That is why they are turning their greedy eyes towards Africa.

    I’m typing this message on a Samsung laptop which will soon be replaced, but my new pc won’t be a Samsung. I like Samsung products but won’t be buying any more until the company acknowledges the horrific dog meat industry and uses all its influence with government and other authorities to bring it to an end.

      I totaly agree that China is the worst country on earth to torture anykind of animals, they just don’t have any heart, no soul ! But other countries like Vietnam, Korea, Cambodgia and most of asian countries, continue to eat and torture cats and dogs. So that’s why we should boycott all asian countries. I do until they will end this barbaric torture !

    If the people at Samsung think that they can go on selling their products with no repurcussions from not standing up and helping STOP this abhorrent cruelty, you are very wrong. When I say the word is out, that is an understatement. I live in a very wealthy part of Connecticut and I am someone who knows a significant number of people and those people know people and so on and so on. Over time, you will see that people will stop buying your products and any products associated with South Korea and China. Anyone who allows these poor animals to suffer like this, ought to be ashamed of themselves. Be the ones to do the right thing.

    SAMSUNG: Be advised. I am a consumer. I vote with my money. I have a very large family, and many friends and acquaintances- as most people commenting here do as well. For every person who comments here there are at minimum 10 more sharing the same sentiment. You MUST speak PUBLICLY and take a corporate stand AGAINST the ABHORRENT, VILE, EVIL practice of dog and cat meat trade in your country and those countries who partake in the sadism.
