I have had two flights from the U.S. to Korea paid for, in advance. The first time was a bit harder to get the flight paid for up front (clearly the school is placing a lot of trust in the teacher to actually show up for work on the appointed day), the second time was easy; both flights cost the schools (now on my 2nd) around $900. So, in advance I think you can get your flight paid for, in reimbursement, yes, definitely keep receipts. Some schools will pay for flight up front, some will reimburse.

You probably know, but you will need university transcripts and original diplomas to get your Korean working visa (good for one year). I mention this because I had to replace my diploma this spring, and it takes app. 5 weeks for my uni. to do so--frustrating wait.

If you go to Korea without a work visa you must, as silly as it sounds, go to Japan to get one.

I personally prefer to contact a school directly, as I did with my first job, but for my 2nd (now a month into) I had to use a recruiter to get a position in my desired city. I was hesitant, but it turned out well. Recruiter details:

Ms. Rory Lee
agency: EnglishWork
email: englishworkm@gmail.com
website: www.englishwork.com

(I don't know about other recruiters at her agency, but Rory was very nice, speaks good English, called me at home in the U.S. a number of times to make sure things were progressing, etc. And I am relatively happy at my new school. So I do recommend her specifically.)
