accurate number of Koreans in Vietnam?
« on: August 03, 2021, 05:23:06 AM »
half viet/half Korean will probably be the biggest number of mestizos in years to come.

The fate of a Korean Covid-19 fatality in Vietnam, who was cremated without his relatives or the Korean government being notified, is spooking other Koreans in the Indochinese nation, which is suffering a wave of infections.
 
A 58-year-old Korean man was infected with Covid-19 in Ho Chi Minh City earlier this month. He was put in a quarantine facility, then moved to a hospital after his condition deteriorated.
 
He died on July 13. 
 
Health authorities cremated his body immediately. Ho Chi Minh City mandates that patients who die of Covid-19 be cremated within 24 hours.
 
The problem was that no health official informed the Korean consulate before the cremation. Normally Vietnam would inform a foreign diplomatic mission about the death and cremation of one of its nationals.
 
In this particular case, the Korean man's move from quarantine facility to hospital, and his death and cremation were not shared with the Korean consulate.
 
“It is the usual practice of Korean diplomatic missions abroad to keep a list of Korean citizens infected with Covid-19, and to check with local authorities on their condition,” a Foreign Ministry official told the JoongAng Ilbo. “In this man’s case, the fact that his conditions worsened and he was hospitalized was not shared with the Korean consulate in Vietnam.”
 
Only three days after the man’s death did Korea’s Foreign Ministry finally found out that he had been cremated. The first alert came from a friend of the man, who was also infected with Covid-19 and kept in a quarantine facility. The friend notified other members of the Korean community in Vietnam and the consulate general that he could not get in touch with the man, prompting a search. 
 
Korea’s Foreign Ministry said it submitted a statement to the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry and Health Ministry requesting that they “share immediately details concerning Korean citizens infected with Covid-19 with their relatives and the Korean Embassy.”
 
The man who died was reported to have lived alone in Ho Chi Minh. All of his relatives are in Korea.
 
The ministry has confirmed with the Vietnamese government the whereabouts of the man’s ashes, and intends to coordinate their repatriation to Korea within the week, the JoongAng Ilbo reported Monday.
 
The incident came a month after Korea and Vietnam’s foreign ministers held a meeting to pledge closer cooperation on fighting the pandemic.
 
Korea’s Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong visited Vietnam and met with Foreign Minister Bui Thanh Son on June 23. Emphasizing the 30th anniversary of Korea-Vietnam ties next year, the two pledged to work closely on various fronts including trade and investment and bilateral infrastructure projects. 
 
In the meeting, Seoul pledged to support Hanoi with medical devices including syringes worth around $2.5 million.
 
“Mentioning how the Korean government was implementing Covid-19 vaccinations for both nationals and long-term foreign residents in Korea, Minister Chung asked for active support from Vietnam to assist Korean residents in Vietnam to get vaccinations,” Korea’s Foreign Ministry said in its statement last month.
 
There are around 172,600 Koreans in Vietnam, according to the ministry, and at least 224,500 Vietnamese in Korea, according to the Ministry of Justice. 
 
Vietnam’s daily infection count has been around 2,200 recently, the highest since the onset of the pandemic, according to Reuters. Only around 4 percent of the country’s population has received first doses of vaccines, according to Our World in Data, a research team based at the University of Oxford.
 
“Vietnam is going through the highest peak yet since the onset of the pandemic,” Park Jung-ryul, a 49-year-old Korean man living in Vietnam, told the JoongAng Ilbo. “We hear of shortages of vaccines and hospital beds every day. And now the news of a Korean who was cremated without any notification to relatives is scaring all of us to death."
 
Ho Chi Minh City was put in a two-week lockdown starting July 9 to curb the spread of the virus.

There is a whole district in saigon that is unoffically known as korea town. I think it was district 8 district 7, phu my hung. They are either in hcmc or various places in central vietnam.

I read somewhere where Saigon has the highest concentration of overseas Koreans.  They have pretty much an enclave just like a Chinatowns everywhere.  They prefer VN because of similar cultural values. 

The new Wiki said that Koreans in VN numbers 290,000. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koreans_in_Vietnam

I'm not sure why they chose Saigon.  The surrounding cities are the ghettoest of the country and the most tropical weather.

Vietnam and korea have some special business or economic relationship/partnership, that would probably explain the migration between both countries. As to why they would migrate from first world SK to third world VN to actually live there, maybe cause they are sick of the cold climate in korea and the competitiveness there.

290,000 is a tiny drop in the gene pool. During vn war ove 2 million service people through the years and the number of Amerasian top is 30k.

I think Koreans are fine in VN.  They try to be respectful and really try to understand the culture.  I don't see too many disrespectful attitudes as some might expect.
