The event is jointly organised by the RoK Embassy in Viet Nam, the Viet Nam Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Viet Nam Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, among others, with the aim of strengthening the bilateral relations between Viet Nam and RoK across various areas.

As many as 70 pavilions will showcase their products at the festival, including many famous brands from the RoK, like  Binggrae, Nongshim, Miwon, Chonggak house, Chungjungwon, Samyang food, and Dongwon, among others.

In addition, several pavilions will be preserved to introduce visitors to the RoK’s traditional 'Kimchi' food and traditional 'Hanbok' costumes, in addition to typical farm produce from the RoK's localities.

During the festival, there will be an EDM Party, drawing the participation of Soobin Hoang Son and famous Vietnamese DJs on October 27.

One day later, Vietnamese spectators will have the chance to meet with Vietnamese singer Noo PhuocThinh, famous Korean singer Haha and actor Lee Kwang Soo.

Visitors will be entertained with more cultural activities on October 29, the last day of the festival, including a performance by Kim Dong Kyu - the well-known RoK male voice, and movie shows at the Lotte Cinema.

Meanwhile the beloved chef of Korea Lee Won Il will join a Viet Nam-ROK MasterChef competition as instructor and a jury member. 

The event was first held in 2008 and has become one of the major cultural activities between the two countries. Last year's festival attracted more than 100,000 visitors.
