Busan are managed by former Chelsea and Reading manager Ian Porterfield and he is keen to bring in some English players to the club.
Cureton's future has been the subject of intense speculation all summer, with Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City also keen on signing him.
The 27-year-old was offered a new one-year deal by Reading, but he rejected it as he was looking for a more long-term contract.
Cureton has visited the South Korean club to have a closer look at their facilities and it seems the offer of a lucrative contract is enough to tempt him to leave Reading.
"I'm sad to leave, it's a massive wrench and I've thoroughly enjoyed my three years. It's been a really tough decision," Cureton told the club's official website.
"I just felt it was the right time to make a change, so why not make a change in a big way and go to Korea?
"The timing was right on all fronts, it will be a completely new experience and I am looking forward to it."
Porterfield had hoped to team up Cureton with Butler, but the former Cambridge striker is thought not to be keen on a move away from England.
Butler is well down the pecking order at The Madejski Stadium but he is ready to fight for his place next season.
Meanwhile, Reading will hold talks with Bristol City winger Scott Murray on Monday about a move to the First Division outfit.
Both sides have agreed a fee for the player and it is just up to Murray and Reading to agree personal terms for the move to be completed.
