My friend is an Indonesian and would like to travel to South Korea, he holds a Japan technical intern visa.

Will he be exempt from a South Korean visa? If not, how should I get the South Korea visa?

    Are you trying to get a visa for Him or for you. In one part of the question you ask about whether he needs a visa. You then ask how you'd get a visa if he doesn't have a visa exemption. I tidied the question up a bit in an edit, but i wasn't sure what you meant there.

Per TIMATIC, an Indonesian citizen needs a visa unless they hold a visa for certain other countries1, Japan not included. To obtain a toursim visa (probably B2), the person trying to visit should contact the nearest South Korean embassy.
