International marriages within Asia, although by no means unprecedented historically,2 have been on the rise over the last two decades. Often these marital unions have been between men from more wealthy countries in the region and women from less affluent ones (Constable, 2005). In particular, women from China and Southeast Asia have been leaving their countries of origin to marry men from Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan (Jones & Shen, 2008). Lu and Yang (2010) contend that in addition to this general trend, recent international marriage migration within Asia has also increasingly been commercially brokered or arranged through interpersonal networks, and characterized by little to no courtship among partners. Our analysis focuses on the marriage migration stream that has developed between Vietnam and South Korea, its antecedents, its characteristics, and the ways in which it exemplifies these regional patterns.
