What is up with this expensive flights? Looking to go to Jakarta for Chuseok but only finding prices for like 700usd+.

Am I just looking in the wrong places or that normal?

Any holiday period in Korea is expensive travel, it doesn't matter if it's domestic or international.
What dates are you looking at? I found direct flights Sat to Wed (6th to 10th) for $560 direct on Cheapoair and flying Garuda Indonesia.

Is there a reason you're going to Jakarta specifically? If you just want to visit Indonesia, it might be cheaper to fly to KL or Singapore, then take a budget airline to an Indonesian city (such as Medan or Bandung). Jakarta also kinda sucks IMO. Flights to Bali will be about the same price too probably.

I fly from North America to Surabaya (east java) about once a year, and I usually find it cheaper to do it that way.

Of course if time is an issue, then yeah, you'll probably have to suck it up.
