Image of Asia: Little monks at play in South Korea

In this photo by Lee Jin-man, children with shaved heads play Dongjasung, or little monk, soccer at Jogye Temple in Seoul, South Korea. The children entered temples for two weeks to experience a monk's life. They participated in a lantern lighting ceremony and the Dongjasung soccer match among events to celebrate Buddha's 2,559th birthday on May 25 and to publicize Korean Buddhism.
