The D-10 visa rules apply to EVERYONE.

E-2 or whatever other visa is completely irrelevant.

How can anyone state that even applying for one particular visa is affected by another visa?

It doesn't. 

Anyone who states that former E-2's are immune to the new changes is deluding themselves.
what? there are many instances where applying for one visa from another is a different process with different rules

Yes....they are DIFFERENT visa's.

If you want a D-10 visa, you need to fulfill the points requirement for that visa.

There are no exceptions to this.

A previous poster stated that E-2's may be exempt from this requirement which is completely false.

yes, but if you are transferring visas then there are different rules and different requirements, depending on the visa you hold, and the visa you are transferring to. i'm not sure about this visa exactly, but this is certainly the case for other visas

Without a link to the visa guidelines in the Korean language, this discussion is pointless.

You are stating a fact and then stating you are not sure about said fact.

Let me put this plainly to you.

For the D-10.... your PAST visa has ZERO bearing on the requirements to get it.

Whatever you stated about other visas is completely irrelevant.   If you cannot get the points (which seems to be the case for you), then you will not get a D-10.  You will do what others did before the D-10 came into existence.  Find a job on a tourist visa and then do a visa run.

This point system D10 visa is mainly for D2 visa holders (E2 visa holders don’t need to check this point).
(Eligibility Required) Among the total 180 points, the basic items are 20 points or more and the total score is 60 points or more.  (D-10)
*Please refer to the “D-10 Visitor Visa”

SO, has E2 actually tried to get a D10 in Korea yet now that it's 2019?  It's probably too soon, I assume?

Try substantiating your wild claims with evidence.

I've already posted a link to a professional immigration consultant claiming that the new points system does not apply to E2's.

Give us a reason to take your word over that of a professional immigration expert.

D10 has always had multiple aspects to it, depending on who was applying and for what purpose. Its not as straightforward as you're trying to make it seem.

There has always been confusion over kimmi requirements. You can get different immigration officers saying opposite things. People simply making hearsay claims online without backing them up doesn't mean much.

It doesn't make much sense for immigration to eliminate their E2 EFL teachers in the hope that Yale grads and CEO's of multinational companies will suddenly fill the gap and teach the alphabet to kinder kids.

I've emailed the same professional immigration consultant about the significance of this points based system for changing visa status from E-3 to D-10.

At the moment I score 55 points when I compute it from the link in [1]. That is without using the final 'additional points' section - where I could score another 5 because I have a bachelor's degree, but in [2] they also state that a foreign degree can't be verified by the immigration officers. Which is a bit weird because they do seem to count a Bachelor's, Master's and PhD from a foreign country in the basic points section, but somehow not in the additional points section.

Anycase, let's see what response I get from them.

The F2 points (used to have/has) extra points for local degrees. Perhaps that is what this means.
