I really need to send some documents back home (South Africa) via airmail, because it needs to get there as soon as possible. At first I thought I'll just go to my local post office, but realised they might not be able to help me. I live in Incheon. Can anyone share some thoughts on this subject and give me some advice as to where I can go or what can I do...

Thanks!

Go to your local post office and ask them to express mail it...

Mail to SA only takes two weeks.  If you need it to get there even quicker than that, ask your co-teacher how to courier a document or ask the post office to send it via express mail which supposedly takes 4 days.  Personally, I don't think express mail is that much faster to SA and sometimes regular mail takes less than 2 weeks.  I recently posted my niece's birthday present (via regular mail) on a Tuesday and it was collected from the post office in SA four days later.

sorry to use your thread, but how much does it usually cost to regular mail something either to or from Korea.
I live in the US.
If anyone knows, please tell me.

It depends on what you're posting.  I don't know about mail costs to Korea but mailing from Korea is pretty cheap.  An average letter/postcard is less than 1 000 won and a medium-sized parcel of nearly 3kg (to SA at least) is about 40 000 won.  I think the US might be cheaper for parcels though.  An American friend of mine regularly gets parcels from home so it can't be too expensive to send parcels from the US to Korea.

I live in Incheon. Most post offices have somebody who can at least communicate basically with you about what you want. I express mailed some documents home to the states and it was like 10,000 and got there in a few days.
