Update: Jul 01, 2015
Vietnamese traditions and colours filled Seoul as the first Viet Nam Culture Day was held in the Republic of Korea (RoK) on June 28.

Thousands of Vietnamese and Korean nationals joined the event at Dong-jak district’s communal house to immerse themselves in Vietnamese cuisine and a traditional music competition. 

Vietnamese women in ao dai (long dresses) and others who married into Korean families wearing its equivalent, a Hanbok, symbolised a cultural harmony between the two nations. 

Delivering a speech at the event, Counsellor Tran Anh Vu from the Vietnam Embassy in the RoK noted the importance of the cultural day in promoting Viet Nam and generating mutual understanding between the two peoples. 

The event contributes to strengthening connection among the Vietnamese expat communities in the RoK, he said. 

The Vietnamese cultural centre in the host country organised the event.
