Right now at Daecheon Beach in Boryeong of South Chungcheong Province, the global summer festival, Boryeong Mud Festival, is well under way.

Despite the cloudy weather today, the beach is filled with tourists.

Let us connect to the reporter on the beach to feel the festivities.

Jung Yoon-duk has more.


"Feel the mud, roll around in it, enjoy."

Behind me is Daecheon Beach filled with mud, where the mud festival is well under way.

Vacationers going to and from the beach are covered in mud, and mud is being poured everywhere.

The sky is gray, but it is crowded here with tourists enjoying the festival and getting rid of their fatigue.

Young people who have come from not just Korea but also all over the world are playing games in the mud pool, becoming friends with each other regardless of nationality or age.

They slip, fall and get mud all over their bodies, but they are still all smiles.

As soon as they fall into the mud pool from the slide, the stress from their daily lives is gone.

The skin, covered with mud, has become moist and soft.

Just now, the Black Eagles, the special flight team of the Air Force, put on an air show, and a moment later, the Spain tomato festival will be available to try.

At this festival, you can enjoy about 50 various programs and indulge in the fantastic world of mud. Despite the rain yesterday, 580,000 people came to visit.

It has now become an established global festival of Korea, visited by 320,000 foreigners last year.

The Boryeong Mud Festival, where you can enjoy the romance of the beach, joyful passion and even skin care, continues until July 24.
