Options I found: Fly directly from Singapore to Medan for circa 90 USD. Bus from Singapore to Johor Bahru in Malaysia (take a bus to Sentral Johor Bahru, then another bus to airport) located very close to Singapore for circa 8 USD, then direct flight to Medan with Airasia for circa 40 USD. So a total of circa 50 USD. Note that AirAsia provides free shuffle ...

I will add to downhand's answer, which I mostly endorse (especially the part about the ferry!) I will give some alternative suggestions about some of my favorite places off the beaten track, especially if you like walking. I would personally spend somewhat less time in Tokyo and Seoul -- they are delightful places both, but in my opinion the tourist sights ...

Regarding the air-fare you have a few options. Buying only one-way tickets is generally the most expensive option, but it depends on the air-line. Since you are flying from Zurich, there are not too many low-cost air-lines available for inter-continental travel. Option #1 @Tom already suggested buying a regional ticket (2 hour flight). I think this is your ...

In case the total amount of time you can spend there is more or less fixed, I would choose doing roughly two weeks Japan and one week Korea.

Well three weeks is not much time, you could easily spend that in either country and just scratch the surface. For air travel, buying three one way tickets will likely cost a far bit more than buying a round trip ticket, plus a regional ticket. I would look at a couple of options: flying r/t ZRH-ICN or ZRH-NRT with a second ticket r/t between Japan and ...

It's definitely not obligatory as far as Schengen regulations are concerned, which is why they can't explicitly demand it and only recommend one. Beyond that, you need to establish two things: that you have a valid purpose (that's where the itinerary comes in) and that you have the means to leave the Schengen area (that's why a reservation might be useful). ...

From the looks of it, they probably want you to have an idea of where you're going, whether it's within the Schengen area or not, whether you need a particular visa, etc. More than likely it's to prevent someone from spending a lot of money for a plane ticket that may not be used (if the visa is rejected). Have a particular flight and/or date in mind, just ...
