The month-long exhibition is jointly held by the Vietnam National Museum of History, the Baekje World Heritage Centre, the Korean Cultural Centre and Jeju province, as part of activities marking the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the RoK (1992 - 2022).

It aims to strengthen cultural exchanges and friendship between the people of the two countries.
