Luggage transfer with Asiana and ICN?

I tried to find an answer to this but was unsuccessful. Maybe some here can help?

I am traveling from OKC to SGN (Ho Chi Minh) in march in business on a reward ticket. The itinerary is UAL from OKC to SFO, and then on Asiana from SFO via ICN to SGN. My questions are:

1) Will United check baggage through to SGN?

2) Will I have to pick up and recheck baggage in transit at ICN? My connection time is only 1.5 hours.
I've heard ICN is very efficient with tranfer passengers but this is my first time in transit there. I suppose I will find out regardless but I have a touch of OCD.

If for some reason all the flights are on separate bookings UA will require an itin printout to tag the bag to SGN via ICN, and vice versa OZ/Asiana will require a printout of the UA booking when you leave SGN.

If the above is true I also HIGHLY suggest when you connect wherever you switch carriers that the new carrier does see a bag checked and has the tag number. Just playing safe if you have multiple itins... Normally on a single itin NONE of the above ever needs to be done
