First of all, have you seen the Pusanweb site?
http://www.pusanweb.com
I think you'll find it really useful to gather information about living and working in Pusan. There are job listings within the classifieds section.

I'm not exactly sure what your distinction is between teaching business English and hagwons but I'll go along with my interpretation of that one...

As far as teaching Business English to adults - this work does exist, however I think most of it is done through hagwons. It's not as easy to come by a job teaching adults (let alone solely Business English) as it is to get a job teaching kids. It's not impossible but it may take longer than it would to get a job teaching kids.

To get a job teaching Bus Eng to execs and working directly for a big company is really hard and I imagine very competitive. Those jobs are never advertised and probably operate on a word of mouth basis. But then again, what do I know? I'm just a kindi and elementary teacher...

I think one of the drawbacks of teaching adults here is the split shift requirement many jobs have. That's something to look out for.

Good luck with your job hunting. I hope my post doesn't sound negative. It's not my intention. I guess the point I'm ultimately trying to make is that I think you'll need to be patient to find the position that you're after.

I worked at Pusan ELS when I worked in Korea the first time. It was good.
