 Hwang Dong-hyuk, the director of “Squid Game,” is now enjoying the euphoria that the winning teams in the childhood game must have felt. The nine-episode Korean thriller, released Sept. 17, has soared to the No. 1 slot on Netflix’s global TV show list.

2. Time to review banning dog meat: Moon
요약: 문재인 대통령이 개고기 식용 금지를 검토하겠다는 입장을 내놓으며 수년간 팽팽하게 대립해온 논란이 다시 일고 있다.
추친 된다면 사상 최초로 정부 차원에서 개 사육·도축 및 개고기 유통을 금지하는 법제화 인 셈.
 President Moon Jae-in on Monday stressed the need for discussions about a ban on dog meat, renewing a decades-old dispute here over the slaughter of animals, especially dogs, for food.
*dispute: 분쟁, 논쟁
*slaughter: (명) 도축/ (동) 도살하다
 “Hasn’t the time come to prudently consider prohibiting dog meat consumption?” the president asked Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum during their weekly meeting, according to his spokesperson Park Kyung-mee.
* prudently: 신중하게, 사려 깊게
*prohibit: 금지하다, ~하지 못하게 하다
*consumption: 소비 (v. consume)
 Moon made the comments after he was briefed on the government’s new measures to protect abandoned animals, including upgrading a registration system and inspecting all animal protection centers to check for abuse or neglect.
* abandon: 버리다, 유기하다
*inspect: 점검하다, 사찰하다
*neglect: (명) 방치, 소홀/ (동) 방치하다, 도외시하다
 His shift in stance may come with a change in public sentiment in recent years amid a surge in the number of households with pet dogs or cats. According to the Agriculture Ministry, the number has almost tripled from 2.57 million in 2015 to 6.38 million in 2020. During the same period, demand for dog meat has been drastically reduced, with the country’s three biggest dog meat markets having shut down.
