The nation opened on Saturday a cultural center in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, its first in Southeast Asia.

First Lady Kwon Yang-suk attended a dedication ceremony for the center, whose opening coincided with the start of the two-day annual leaders' meeting of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation member countries.

The three-story complex features various facilities including an exhibition hall, a library, a classroom for Korean language instruction, a conference room and a theater.

The Culture Ministry in Seoul said that it chose Vietnam as the location for its seventh cultural center worldwide in light of the Southeast Asian country's intense demand for Korean cultural products, including films, television drama series and animations.

South Korea established diplomatic ties with Vietnam in 1992.
