This month the café has been uploading photos of its signature drink, coconut coffee, on Instagram, signalling the establishment of its first store in Seoul, Korean newspaper Kookmin Ilbo reported.
On July 16 the brand also posted location maps showing the way to the new coffee shop.
Cộng Café takes its name from word Cộng Hoà (Republic), part of the official name of Vietnam.
The theme of the café chain has intrigued customers. It has retro décor interiors, including lighting, wall colours and background music.
The café revisits the 80s in Vietnam, allowing customers a unique journey back in time.
Cộng Café opened its first store in 2007 in Hanoi, and since then has franchised more than 50 stores in Hanoi, Hoi An and HCM City.
