1. A vehicle grille, comprising:
a grille panel;
a lens panel disposed at a rear side of the grille panel, and formed in a same shape as some or entire area of the grille panel, wherein when a light is incident, the lens panel is configured to allow some of the light to propagate in the lens panel and emit some of the light to the outside; and
a housing disposed on a rear surface of the lens panel, formed in a same shape as the lens panel, and including a coupling provision hole through which a laser from a rear side of the lens panel is incident on a coupling region between a front surface of the lens panel and a rear surface of the grill panel to generate a fusing region by which the front surface of the lens panel is coupled to the rear surface of the grille panel,
wherein the rear surface of the lens panel and the front surface of the housing are coupled with each other by another incident laser emitted from a front side of the lens panel.
