The KOVIFA President expressed his hope that the festival will offer an opportunity for RoK people to understand more about the culture and history of Vietnam and help multi-cultural families soon integrate into the local community.


The festival is scheduled to be held in turn in Seoul’s four districts of Guro, Dobong, Eunpyung and Seongdong every Saturday this month.
