|I have flown in cargo, a few times. And even thought it sounds awful, it was better than when I was in the cabin, because I cried the whole time. They actually don't want you to eat in your carrier, but will have your daddy attach food to the carrier. They may be fed dring the layover, or if there is a delay. I have never flow as far as Korea, but a frined of mine flew to Bangkok which may even be a little longer because he had to go through Japan, and then on to Thailand. He was an older kitty (10+) and his daddy said that he did fine. (as aside this kitty became famous in Thialand by winning a fat cat contest, at 20 pounds he was heavy here, but freakishly fat in Thailand) Your vet may give you a sedative, although ours declined. Even though my mom didn't think of it, a puppy pad can be used for accidents, and you may be able to have ice for water. You definietly want something that smells like your home and family to take with you, and somthing to curl up in.
It is a little traumatic to fly, but when I flew I bounced back rather quickly. It is worth it to stay with your family!
