HA NOI (VNS) — Vietnamese readers can now enjoy reading Koreana magazine in their native tongue, due to the recent efforts of the Korea Foundation.
The project was funded by the Foundation's Ha Noi office and carried out by the faculty of the Korean Studies department at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities at Viet Nam National University in HCM City.
Koreana magazine was first launched in 1987 accompanied by an English version so as to bring to the international community a taste of the Republic of Korea's traditional and modern culture and arts.
The magazine has since been translated into 10 languages including the most recent Vietnamese version, introduced to readers at the beginning of 2015.
Korea Foundation Chairman, Yu Hyun-Seok, said the Vietnamese edition would build understanding between Vietnamese and Korean cultures. Especially for students of Korean studies and language, the new version of Koreana will be a valuable reference tool. — VNS
