To celebrate Vietnam - South Korea's 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations, Kim Jai-min holds an exhibition in Incheon. The exhibition introduced Kim Jai-min's watercolor paintings about the Vietnamese western region, such as My Tho, Vinh Long, and Can Tho.
Kim Jai-min, a retired teacher of Songdo High School in Incheon (South Korea), has a great passion for the country and people of Vietnam. He has used watercolors to redraw pictures he has taken during his travels to Vietnam over the past 30 years and display them in exhibitions about Vietnam, the country he has "fallen in love with."
"I have traveled to Vietnam about 30 times since 1993 and thereby gained many documents and beautiful memories about the land and the people."
"The more I travel, the deeper my feelings for Vietnam get. Ten years ago, I started to draw with inspiration from the photos I took. They were mainly for the Vietnamese people living in South Korea, especially women who married Korean men, to somewhat ease their homesickness."
Kim Jai-min has made many contributions to a harmonious multicultural society as he has held 10 different watercolor painting exhibitions from 2019 to 2021.

He also joined an EBS program "Tourism Chronicle" to introduce Vietnam tourism and co-write a book named "A story about Vietnam" with Professor Kim Young-sun of Inha University (2015) which helps Koreans have a deeper understanding of Vietnam.
