As Cold As it Gets

Every year, the South Korean army undergoes this winter training to strengthen their minds and bodies and to make sure the cold doesn’t affect them on real missions.

More than 200 soldiers take part in this snowy training session, in Pyeonghang, 180 km east of Seoul. They do gymnastics, swim in icy water, hurl snow at their bare chests, build snow shelters and sprint, all at temperatures of -30c or colder. The extreme training lasts for nine days. Brrrrr!
