The 27-year-old has been the subject of much transfer speculation this summer, having been linked to Division Two sides Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City.
The former Bristol Rovers hit-man has also been to the United States to have a trial with Major Soccer League side DC United.
Cureton has been offered a new one-year deal with The Royals, with manager Alan Pardew believing it would be in his best interests to stay at The Madejski Stadium.
However, the Bristol-born marksman is keen to get more first team action next season and Busan are said to have offered him a contract to come to the Far East.
Busan are managed by former Chelsea and Aberdeen manager Ian Porterfield and Cureton admits the offer is an interesting one, having visited the South Korean club to have a closer look.
"I was invited there by the manager Ian Porterfield, a former Reading boss who has also managed Tony Rougier at international level," Cureton told Reading's official website.
"We had a good chat and they offered me a contract, and it's a very good option for me to consider.
"It was a completely new experience, but I was really impressed.
"They've got an excellent stadium, which was built specially for the World Cup, and the training ground is new as well.
"It's hard to find any faults - it's a lovely area, the facilities are first class and it helps that they've got a British manager.
"I didn't expect it at all, and just assumed I'd be staying in England, but it was important to go out there and see the lifestyle.
"Things are all coming to a head now and I've got some serious thinking to do."
