Ah Bull

3 06 2009

Ah Korea, land of Sparkling.

What could be more Korean than 2 bulls head-butting each other into submission? Stubbornness and a love of beef? That’s the Cheong-Do Cow Fighting Festival. Korea vs Japan in a cow fighting festival.

Simply put, they drag two bulls into a ring and try to motivate them to “fight”. The first one to turn and run is the looser. Some fights went on for a few minutes, some didn’t even start with one or both bulls refusing to fight.

Head to Head

Korean Bull Fighting

One of the more peculiar festivals I’ve visited in Korea, but certainly very entertaining.
