NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Boryeong, which is hosting the 20th annual Mud Festival about 190 km (120 miles) southwest of the capital, Seoul, says its mud has special powers to refresh the skin and soothe the soul. Besides pitching skincare products made from nearby mudflats, the festival also gives visitors the chance to play in tonnes of the greyish goo at mud wrestling pits, mud slides and mud baths. The festival is a major boost to the local economy. Organisers said four million people, including 439,000 foreigners, flocked to the city last year. This year's event runs to July 30.
