Parental Leave aka Childcare Leave in Korea

 The Fifth Trimester

I've written about maternity leave and paternity leave before. There is also optional leave that either parent can take. Here's what the laws say about employment insurance. Here's some information in English.

Additional Time Off: Parental Leave
If you go back to work and decide that you would like additional time off, the good news is that you might be able to take up to a year off as unpaid leave. Though here it says they get 40% of their base salary with a max of 1 mil won. This is known in Korea as childcare leave     "육 아휴직". You can legally take up to a year of unpaid leave while your child is under 6 western (72 months) providing you've been with the same employer for more than a year.

There is a grey area surrounding teachers who are on a one year contract that have been renewed. Your best bet would be to ask in LOFT or PALS about what people have done recently.
