These specialists are now in the second generation of Vietnamese studies and form the backbone of Vietnamese studies in Korea. The researches done by not only Vietnam specialists but also researchers who conduct case studies about Vietnam have significantly increased in the fields of economics, business management and social studies. Vietnamese studies in Korea have been closely related to social change. The future task for the development of Vietnamese studies in Korea is to promote quality of researches based on quantitative growth.
