Connecting flight in Incheon, Korea

I am traveling from the USA to Saigon with a connection in Incheon, Korea (ICN). I will be checking in luggage on my flight from USA to ICN. When I arrive in ICN, do I need to pick up my luggage and check it in again? Or will my luggage be automatically transferred to my final destination in Saigon. Thanks so much in advance.

What airline? Is it all on one ticket?

Thanks for your reply. This will be on one ticket purchased through Delta.

Delta airlines for Minneapolis to Incheon
Korean Airlines for Incheon to Saigon

Assuming you dont have more then 24 hrs between flights it should go thru, best to make sure the tags show SGN as the final destination, dont have enough fingers and toes to count the # of times the person checking me in only tagged the bags to the 1st stop, even thou it was 1 tkt and only a 2 hr layover

Delta policy currently is to check bags through even on separate tickets, including some partner airlines or certain award tickets involving partners. AFAIK KE isn't included on the separate revenue tickets list yet, but with the stronger partnership and JV, I would expect this to happen soon. MU was recently added to the list.
