I am a Vietnamese passport holder. I'm going back to Vietnam from Seattle next week. I will have a half-day layover in Incheon Airport. I want to go into the city - Seoul just for resting, like getting a hotel and stuff. Do I need a Korean visa for this? If I do, where should I go and get it? How long will it take?

My U.S. visa is still valid. Also, I booked tickets from Vietnam to US already.

Yes, you need a visa. You should apply at the

Consulate General of the Republic of Korea
2033 Sixth Ave., #1125
Seattle, WA 98121
(206) 441-1011

They say it takes four days to process the application. See http://usa.mofa.go.kr/english/am/usa/visa/Visa/index.jsp for more information.
