Best bet is to use a web cam.

She can get a cell phone when she gets to Korea and buy prepaid time as needed, that is what most do.

I've been to Osan twice and I have to agree with Kalbo. The best option would be to get a cell phone from downtown and fill up with pre paid phone cards. They phone and the cards are very cheap and their is no contract or bill involved.

When I left there in 2008 the Korean government had some weird rules with VOIP services. Basically it involved $$$, so that's probably no longer an attractive option.
