As for now it's true they are too big for K-League but I hope and believe there will come the day when their size is not adequate for the average attendance and voices for stadium expansion come from here and there!

Generally speaking, K-league clubs yearly budgets are still far behind that of European clubs, but are sitting at the top along with J-league's in Asia.

FC Seoul & Suwon are the two teams that share an intense rivalry in K-league and are incidentally the top 2 teams in terms of yearly budget.

1. Suwon's yearly budget was $28 million in 2009
2. FC Seoul is around $32 million

K-league's most successful club, Seongnam Ilhwa is really a mystery in regards to this. Their yearly budget is unknown. But, to give you a rough idea as to how much they can spend in one year, the club's owner also organizes a tournament called 'Peace Cup' every two years, and it costs $20 million to hold one. In 2002, Seongnam had spent roughly around $10 million just to buy a few players. So, I would guess that their yearly budget would probably equal if not more than the aforementioned top two teams.

The other top teams in K-league such as Jeonbuk & Ulsan fall into $17 mil ~ $20 mil.

The middle table teams like Jeju UTD, Incheon UTD, Chunnam Dragons, Pohang Steelers (Current ACL champions) & Busan I'Park fall into $12 ~ 15 mil.

Lastly the lower teams like Gyeongnam FC, Gangwon FC, Daejeon, Daegu fall into $8 mil ~ $12 mil.

I forgot to mention one more thing though. Although, all the K-league clubs are independent entities, some K-league clubs enjoy the luxury of getting financial support outside of their operating budget.

For instance, Suwon's main sponsor is a global company Samsung Electronics whose annual revenue is around $100 billion and is comparable to Ukraine's (A country of 46 million) annual GDP. When Suwon is in need of signing 'big name players', their main sponsor, Samsung, can offer them the needed cash. Suwon's club house & the training pitches were built by Samsung and Suwon's club house is regarded as the best in K-league as well as in Asia.

Similar story to other K-league sides such as,

Suwon's rival, FC Seoul's main sponsor is GS company who is also one of the largest Chaebol or Conglomerate in English in South Korea.

Jeonbuk's (2006 ACL Champions) main sponsor is Hyundai Motors who is also one of the largest companies in South Korea.

Pohang's (2009 ACL Champions) main sponsor is POSCO who is world's second biggest steel maker by market value.

Ulsan's main sponsor is Hyundai Heavy Industries (It's a different company to Hyundai Motors) who is world's largest shipbuilder.

Gyeongnam FC's main sponsor is STX Group who is world's 4th largest shipbuilder and is a company who also owns Akeryards, the Europe's largest shipbuilder.

Jeju UTD's main sponsor is SK Group who is South Korea's 4th largest company.

Yes, you're quite right. Most of these WC stadiums are simply too big for some of the K-league teams.
Just look at Daegu FC who are usually sitting at the bottom of the league table but are using a ridiculously big 70,000 Daegu WC stadium.

But, there are some positive sides to look at.

First of all, K-league's top teams like FC Seoul & Suwon Bluewings have employed long-term marketing strategies and some of them have come to fruit.
Their average attendance are increasing every year and FC Seoul's current average attendance is 37,000 which is comparable to some top European teams.
I read a positive news article about a week ago and it was about FC Seoul's increasing season ticket holders.
It says that FC Seoul are expected to sell 5,000 season tickets this season which is a great improvement compared to last year.

Secondly, some K-league teams are moving into smaller stadiums.
Gyeongnam FC have moved to a 15,500 capacity football-specific stadium this season (To check pics, see page 3), and they're drawing 90% of capacity in each match.
The club have also announced their plan to expand the capacity of the stadium in the future (Hence, the roofs haven't been covered yet)

Similarly, Incheon UTD are also building their new stadium. The Seungui Arena Park which is a 20,030 capacity football-specific stadium. It is due to be completed in 2011.

Lastly the lower teams like Gyeongnam FC, Gangwon FC, Daejeon, Daegu fall into $8 mil ~ $12 mil.
And budgets are increasing?
$32 million dollar is enough to avoid relegation in La Liga. Several teams like Almeria, Valladolid, Málaga or Xerez have budgets about 20 million euros.

Sadly budgets are on the decrease after the global economic crisis, especially the clubs owned by large enterprises like Suwon Bluewings (Samsung), Pohang Steelers and Chunnam Dragons (Posco).

When you say "budget" do you mean strictly salaries or all club expenses?

60,747 spectators gathered at Seoul World Cup Stadium

It was a historic event. Today’s match will be remembered forever in the history of the Korean sports industry.
FC Seoul has once again proven to be an incredible squad, heightening the status of K-league and the local sports industry as a whole.

The Seoul-based prestigious soccer club has gathered 60,747 spectators today in a home match against the Seongnam,
breaking the previous industry record set by the team itself three years ago.

The team that broke the record by gathering more than 50,000 fans in 2007 is rewriting the history of the local soccer league,
attracting a whopping 60,747 fans into the Seoul Stadium on the Children’s Day.
