The number of Vietnamese people living in Korea is on the rise and more and more of them are deciding to start a family here.
Government data shows there are around 120-thousand Vietnamese nationals in the country.
Sixty-thousand men work here as laborers and 50-thousand are Vietnamese women, often brought into Korea by international marriage brokers, to marry with Korean men.
Recent data shows 22-thousand babies were born to multi-cultural families last year in Korea and over a third were from Vietnamese women.
The Ministry of Employment and Labor also says one out of every four foreign laborers in Korea are Vietnamese and they are increasing at a fast pace.
This year marks the 20th year of diplomatic ties between Korea and Vietnam.
