A "haenyeo" female diver collects shellfish in waters off Gapa Island in the city of Seogwipo on South Korea's largest island of Jeju on Oct. 27, 2021. The word haenyeo refers to women who make their living harvesting seafood by hand from the ocean floor without breathing equipment. In 2016, UNESCO included the haenyeo diving culture on its Intangible Cultural Heritage list. (Yonhap)
