Hi! I have my documents just about to be apostilled and am looking to start in December. Ideally a position from December 2021 - August 2022 is what I'm looking for. Thanks!

I won't tell you to lie and say you will be here for a year.  You do what you will do.  All contracts are minimum one year and you will not be hired for less, especially from outside Korea. 
745sticky, Augustiner, Bakeacake, D.L.Orean, Lazio, Mithras, Renma, Rye are still blocked and I can't see them.

I agree that looking for a less than a year contract from abroad is not likely to get results.  But, it is not true that all contracts are for a one year minimum.  It may be that to initially get an E2 you need to do a one year contract, I don't know. But I do know that I switched jobs having an existing E2 and having completed a full year to a new job that was 10.5 months, and that's what what was on on my contract and how immigration entered it and put it on my ARC.  I also know a friend who was on a D10 and didn't want a full year and got a six month private elementary job.  And to be clear, neither of those jobs were a case of agreeing to a year for immi's sake with the the understanding we would finish early.  The contracts were written that way.  My 10.5 month job even paid me a prorated severance which they were not legally required to do.  It was a hakwan.
