The Korean Cultural Center hopes this programme will be an opportunity for Vietnamese people to understand Korean culture better. This is also the chance to strengthen further cultural exchanges between the people of Vietnam and South Korea after the two countries upgrade diplomatic relations to the level of 'comprehensive strategic partnership'.
