Introduction

Bullfight was originally a game enjoyed by ancient Korean cowherds as a past time activity since the beginning of agriculture, but it gradually became a serious competition event as villages began to use the event as an opportunity to show their power. Bullfight was just a small-scale event in Jeongeup until 1996 when the provinces of Jeollanam-do and Cheungcheong-do hosted the National Bullfight Competition for the first time. The competition gradually became a bigger event, and it’s now held on a national scale.
