You can't make the claim that it is 100% true. First of all, let's go back to what you stated before.
"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."
Alright buddy, you got your stuff wrong. There are a lot of Lee Clans in Korea today whose roots do not come from this guy you are claiming. I come from the Ga-pyoung Lee Clan in Taejon, Korea. This guy Ly, first of all, drifted into sea and somehow miraculously landed in Western Korea. The Royal Court recognized his status as a prince and bestowed a title on him, as a sign of respect. Notice, how the Royal Court vested such a title on him and made him into a yang-ban. Let's get one thing straight, Korea was generous to take the garbage from Vietnam. He was a progenitor of a single clan, NOT ALL. You make it seem as if all the Lee's are descendents of him. Get your shit straight before you make outrageous claims you dumb uneducated fuck. I don't know why you guys have so much pride in being Viet. Look at your country, it's still backwards and a wannabe China. Look at the difference b/t the economies 11th largest and I'm not even sure if Vietnam is even ranked. Summer Olympics 1988, World Cup 2002, OCED, I say that's an impressive. resume. Go read some books, your English is horrible.
