Mine had crosshairs on the tube as well!
Odd, my tube has curly hairs.
The suburbs I grew up in didn't have Netflix...but then I grew up before the internet. Our nearest fast food place was a couple miles away, and we had a baseball field at the end of our street where my friends and I used to play ball. We spent more of our waking hours outside than in. I'd typically put 1000 miles on my bicycle during the summer.
So, while you may blame the 'burbs, I'd argue that it's a generational issue.
While dog (Kaygogi) is eaten, it's rather uncommon. I lived there for six years, and only came across it once when my landlord invited me to their elderly grandmother's birthday.
I haven't read the article, but my knee-jerk reaction to the headline is disbelief. Korea is highly polluted, with a very large smoking population, and tuberculosis was much more common there than in the US. Many homes are heated using "Ondal", a form of charcoal, smoking out into the open air. Of the roughly 50 countries I've been to, Korea had the worst drivers...Wikipedia shows 18.2 fatalities/billion km...the U.S. has 7.3 in comparison. The country also has a habit of hiding issues...they refused to admit there were any cases of AIDS for quite a while.
So, is the bark worse than the bite?
I wonder what percentage of the crowd was non-white.

OK, but do you call something that orbits a star (like a, er, planet).
A space station? On the account that it's no moon...
