Summer is the season for fun festivals, drawing hundreds of thousands of people from all around the country. The famous Boryeong Mud Festival is underway while a celebration of bright sunflowers is taking place in southeastern Korea.

The Boryeong Mud Festival, marking its 19th year, is in full swing. The festival's scale has grown with time and this year 57 interactive programs are available for visitors. People slip and slide, get covered in mud, and splash in the water: that's all part of the fun. At the beach water cannons help cool down the festival-goers to the sound of loud, energetic music. Mud mixed with colorful dye is painted on the face and body to give visitors a fun makeover.

[Soundbite] Lee Da-ye(Visitor) : "It's like getting two for one, because I'm not just having fun, but getting skin care by applying mud."

The mud used in the festival is taken from pristine tidal flats and processed to remove any impurities. It's also known to be rich in minerals and germanium, making the mud a perfect ingredient for skin care products. No wonder the mud is exported overseas. The worldwide fame of Boryeong's mud festival has brought the city several international festival awards as well as 320,000 foreign tourists last year.

Take a break from the daily grind at the Boryeong Mud Festival, one of Korea's wildest summer festivals. A small village is surrounded by four million sunflowers. Tourists taking pictures to remember the day smile as brightly as the sun.

[Soundbite] Jeong Jae-yong & Park An-na(Visitor) : "I came here after seeing it on Facebook. These sunflowers are really pretty and nice."

This small festival has become one of the most popular summer festivals in Korea, so much so that it has drawn 220,000 people just three years after its debut.

[Soundbite] "You can use it like money at designated places. Try the produce corner."

The festival's new feature this year is "village currency." Visitors pay about 3 dollars for admission and receive a village currency coupon to pay for food and local specialties.

[Soundbite] Woo Su-yeon(Visitor) : "I used the village currency to pay for a meal. I don't have to pay for both admission and food, but can do everything with the price of admission."

Sunflower fields have rejuvenated a small rural community by becoming a successful example of local festivals.
