Almost half correct but sort of turned around a bit. The Korean War began that way in 1950. The Vietnam War began by infiltration in 1955 (slowly escalating in guerrilla buildup and strength). The Vietnam war ended by a North Vietnamese Army invasion of RVN (Republic of South Vietnam).

What is south Vietnam?

US Military personnel arriving in South Vietnam were welcomed with the following phrase, "Welcome to the Republic of South Vietnam" (RVN). Or, at least that's what the female (males didn't do female work on airliners back then) airline stewardess said before the men disembarked from the plane. In a way, South Vietnam (RVN) was the primary reason the Vietnam War was being fought to begin with...to preserve it from being conquered by Communist North Vietnam. Well, the North won the war, and so to answer your question, "South Vietnam" used to be a country in Southeast Asia that existed from about 1954 until 1975 at which time it was consumed (conquered/defeated) by North Vietnam, and no longer exists.
