I am pretty sure I have seen the answer to this somewhere, but I wanted to double check.

My fiance and I are currently post-K1 interview pending AP since June. We are both living together in Korea. It would negate our fiance visa if we were to get married now, correct? What if we refiled as DCF? The only reason I ask is because my fiance's visa here in Korea is about to expire and if we are married, he could stay with me here in Korea.

I assume that this is impossible, but does anyone know for sure?

No law prevents you from getting married even if your fiance's interview for her/his k1 visa is the next day ok. But the only thing is that you will not have to be issued the K1 visa any more because getting married already defeats the main purpose of getting a K1 visa .. You can get married and then tell the embassy that you already got married but you will either have to do a DFC which does not take long when compared to K1 or fill 130 at one of the service centers in the States based on your original states in the USA ok. I have seen people who had to get married a few days before the arrival of their baby even though Interview date for K1 was just around the corner but they went ahead and got married anyways because they did not want their baby to arrive when they had not signed marriage and the Embassy from overseas understood this reason very well and they asked the embassy to stopped the K1 process and went in for the DCF. So if check with your overseas embassy what are the minimum stay requirements for you do DCF .I know some overseas embassies have minimum local stay requirements before you can do a DCF ..To me this is the best route based on your situation because K1 has its cons or limitation to travel such as waiting for Advanced Parole documents but DCF all your documents are ready once s/he comes in the usa and can always travel out again immediately
