July 15, 2012 — The mud was flying in South Korea this weekend.
It was the start of the Boryeong mud festival on Saturday in South Korea.
Thousands of Koreans and tourists showed up to take part in the festivities -- and they ended up covered in muck.
Visitors are invited to take part in a round of mud wrestling and swim through giant tubs of the muddy sludge -- which some believe contain therapeutic qualities.
The Boryeong mud festival runs until July 24th.
