You should always have both and they will want to see your green card AND passport both ways

You technically need to show your green card to leave the US (to prove that you entered legally), although that is not always enforced. To check in you need a passport to show that you are allowed to enter the country at your destination (Vietnam in your case), and you need to show your green card and a valid passport to enter the US on your return.

You should double check whether some sort of (transit?) visa for Korea is needed for your itinerary. I'd be especially careful if some of your flights are actually *operated* by Jin or some carrier other than KE as you might need to enter South Korea to change terminals at ICN and check in for the other airline.

No change of terminal in ICN. All ST is in new terminal.

Are you sure?

BTW, Jin isn't SkyTeam; it's a LCC affiliate of KE that codeshares. There was a post/thread here recently about connecting between Jin and KE/DL at ICN and Jin uses T1.

What does United have to do with this?

No passport, no boarding for international flights, but many itineraries require additional travel documents, such as visas, in addition to a passport.

If the answer to all these questions is Yes, then you are good to go
Is connection in Korea is less than 24 hrs?
Are you a citizen of Vietnam?
Are you traveling with both your unexpired Vietnamese passport and unexpired US green card? (both should be valid for 6 months or longer when you travel)

Not the case in the US. In the past, when you entered the US with a visa there was a form stapled to your passport that needed to be returned upon departure (I-94) but this was discontinued in 2013. Since then, all you need to leave the US is a valid passport and the documentation to enter your country of destination. No one has ever been technically required to show prove of entering legally to the US upon exit, as there are no immigration checks and Airlines are not required to do this.

Other countries, yes. US: No
