If you leave the country via a Midnight Run can you legally get a job teaching, become an E2 Visa holder and re-enter the country? =)

You can, once your contract E2 period is up.  Though given bad pay not sure why you'd want to come back.  Anyways, if your E2 has 4 months left on it, then you got to wait till that 4 months remaining is up.  Go chill in your folks basement for a bit then re apply later or try to go to another country (that pays better) maybe by fall of 2022.  Your decision, best of luck.

Why assume bad pay?
There are other reasons to midnight run, you know.

But OP, yes, hangook77 is correct in that you will need to wait out the end of your current visa before starting a new job.

If you’re doing a midnight run on a Hakwon, then it doesn’t matter, and yeas when your current E-2 visa expires, you can apply for another one for a new job.

However, if you are with (EPIK) and are working on a public school contract, then the office of Education can black list you from getting another government teaching position again…
