Step one is find a club who want to sign you.

Step two is then worry about the paperwork. The club will have to apply for a visa for you and then you will have to go to an embassy outside Korea to make it official once its approved.

You can go to Korea for 90 days without a visa and it seems to be perfectly OK to say 'looking for work' as the reason although 'just visiting as a tourist' will probably result in fewer questions. You will need to have an onward ticket though otherwise they might not let you board the plane.

Before you do anything though I would get a letter of introduction written in Korean and send it to every club you can find an email address for. See if any even reply.

After contacting Seoul Utd, the problem they had and have is they way they pay. To get the E-6 visa a monthly salary is needed, but they pay depending on how much games you play

You could see if Spanish citizens qualify for the Working Holiday visa and whether that would let you achieve your aims.

Yes, I already checked it before. But unfortunately that option is just available for 6 countries: France, Japan, Australia, New Zeland, EEUU and Canada.

I don't know, they just told me something like they pay depending on your performance, how much games you play, how much games you win.. Actually I didn't understand it at all. But seems like they don't use to pay a monthly salary. Anyway I'm still in contact with them, will tell you later.

Way back when Bucheon was in the K3, the players' wages depended on their performance. I remember the figure being 800,000won for a win, 350,000 for a draw and 0 for a loss. I don't know how it worked for subs and unplayed players though.

According to an immigration official I met last week it's up to about 15 countries. You should probably check again

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website
Korea has bilateral Working Holiday Visa programs with twenty-one countries/region worldwide (and a unilateral Working Holiday Program for the U.K). (May 06, 2015)

but no Spain.

Well, that's something the player and the agent must decide, normally it oscillates between 5%-10% of the salary. To me it depends on the salary, as I said above I just want to survive the first years so, If the salary let me, I would give a 20%,30%..etc.
