Ice fishing festival in Korea

In Korea in south-east Asia, one hundred thousand people braved sub-zero temperatures to enjoy a spot of ice fishing.

The Sancheoneo Festival takes place on a frozen lake where people can use fishing rods to catch fish - or their bare hands.

Obviously it's a bad idea to walk on frozen lakes, so don't try this at home.
