Vietnamese people in RoK celebrate Tet

Nearly 500 Vietnamese living, studying, and working in the Republic of Korea (RoK) and Korean friends gathered in Seoul on December 22 to celebrate the traditional Lunar New Year (Tet) – the biggest holiday in Vietnam.

The event was held by the Association of Vietnamese Communities in Korea (AVCK) with the aim of strengthening solidarity among overseas Vietnamese in their host society.

Participants had an opportunity to taste traditional food such as pork pies and “chung” cake (square glutinous rice cake) as well as enjoy art performances and games.
