Do I have to unlock my K400 before rooting or entering recovery mode?

Towelroot should work straight away, just download the .apk from www.towelroot.com install and reboot, voila rooted phone.

I tried it but I couldn't enter the recovery mod on the phone, that's why I thought it is locked. Actually I tried different sim card and it worked so I don't understand. If the phone locked why I can use another SIM card and if it is unlocked why I cannot enter the recovery mod ( I tried 10 times)

You don't need to enter recovery. Towelroot is an .apk (app) just install like any other app. Open it, hit the button and reboot. Recovery is there it's just annoying to get to is all.

I tried it as well several time and with the Root checking application from play store it showed that my device is not rooted. Is it because my device is the Korean version, it need a different tool?

It should work on the Korean version yes. -- Once you hit "Make it Ra1n" you need to open SuperSU straight away (grab from Playstore) then reboot.
