Le is a common Vietnamese last name, which seems to be as same as "Lai" (chinese).
Ly is a common vietnamese last name, which is the same as "Lee, Li" (chinese's last name).
There are lots of Lee(s) in Korea, which I beleive that their ancestor came from Vietname in the 13th century. He was Ly Long Tuong, the young prince of the Ly Dynasty.
