Korean and Mandarin sound alike; Vietnamese and Cantonese sound alike?

This just be my opinion, but I’m a Cantonese speaker and people say that Vietnamese sounds like Cantonese (vice versa) all the time because of the "Ng" sound in a lot of words.

I can understand and speak Mandarin to a certain extent but I’ve been listening to people speak Korean lately (in dramas) and it sounds kind of like Mandarin.

Is it just me or do you think so too?
