A while ago, I left my job at a hagwon as they were not paying me (and still have not paid me at all, it has been 5-6 months!), and I didn't give notice of leaving. I was previously on and E-2 visa, and I'd like to ask the following:
1) I was told by a former colleague that my former employer cancelled my visa. However, my ARC is still technically valid (in terms of dates). If my visa got cancelled, am I still allowed to visit Korea as a tourist?
2) I also heard from a former colleague that my former workplace was planning a lawsuit against me. Would their case even be accepted by the court? Is there any way to find out if I am wanted for any legal charges?
3) Given the above situation, will I receive any legal troubles, e.g. civil or criminal proceedings, if I ever come back to Korea as a tourist?
