Getting lathered up before jumping into the ring and our dreams
Welcome to the Boryeong Mud Festival, which is held each summer in South Korea.
The festival attracts over a million visitors, many are drunken college students, who get sloppy on the local brew and proceed to cover each other in a mud that is dug up near Boryeong. The mud is said to be rich in minerals, used in cosmetics, blah, blah,blah.
The real story here is that this is quite possibly the world’s largest mud wrestling event. This party moves into 19th place on our “Must Do Before We Die List,” replacing “Finding photos of NBA dancers handling deadly weapons.”
12 muddy Boryeong moments after the jump.
