The archives of the United Methodist Church with some things archived digitally on their website. This is your first stop for materials regarding both the Northern Methodists and Southern Methodist missionaries. Their information regarding specific missionaries varies in completeness. While information regarding Southern Methodist missionaries is weak, the archive of The Missionary Voice, the Southern Methodist missionary magazine is completely digitized.

Founded by missionaries, the Royal Asiatic Society continues to serve as a Korea-based research society. Their website appears to be remodeling (as of July 2020) but their previous website had a wonderful page to download digitized rare books on Korea. One can/could also download digital copies of past issues of their Transactions of the Royal Asiatic Society Korea Branch. Books on Korea published by the RASKB can also be purchased through them at a much lower price even when shipping and handling are included than people are trying to sell them online elsewhere. Due to current coronavirus restrictions overseas shipping (from Korea) is not available as of July 2020. They will take your order, ready it for shipment and send it out when they are finally able.
I highly encourage you to become a member of this Society to help support their ongoing work.

The Moffett Korea Collection at Princeton Seminary contains the personal papers of Samuel Hugh Moffet but also many other items collected during his time in Korea. Many of these are digitalized and available at the following link: https://commons.ptsem.edu/moffett.
Salvation Army records are scattered. You will need to know what countries your Salvation Army missionary came from or were transferred to and then contact that country's archives.
The archives for the United Church of Canada will contain records pertaining to both Canadian Presbyterian missionaries to Korea as well as the Methodist missionaries. Note that only one Methodist missionary that I have found went with the Canadian Methodists to Korea. You can visit them here: www.unitedchurcharchives.ca
