Image of Asia: Santa dives at Seoul aquarium

In this photo by Ahn Young-joon, a diver dressed in a Santa Claus costume swims at the COEX Aquarium in Seoul, South Korea, on Monday. The aquarium is a popular attraction in the South Korean capital. Many South Koreans enthusiastically embrace Christmas celebrations, and local stores put up lights and decorations weeks in advance. The high-end COEX shopping mall, where the aquarium is located, is in Seoul’s wealthy Gangnam area, made famous in the hit song by rapper PSY.
