The USSR supplied Scuds to Vietnam. No confirmed missile transactions with the NKs.

Subs not Scuds! Vietnam did however import at least two Yugo class midget submarines from North Korea

FYI: Sipri notes that the status of the sale is "uncertain."

The plot thickens NIE 5-91C ("Prospects for Special Weapons Proliferation and Control," July 1991) suggests that the US took the rumors seriously enough, but was not sure that a sale had occurred.
