BORYEONG, South Korea -- Festival goers wrestle in the mud during the annual Boryeong Mud Festival at Daecheon Beach on July 18, 2014 in Boryeong, South Korea.

The mud, which is believed to have beneficial effects on the skin due to its mineral content, is sourced from mud flats near Boryeong and transported to the beach by truck.
