Korean Air operates a pair of KAL Lounges at Seoul Gimpo airport – one in the domestic and one in the international terminal.
Prior to my Korean Air flight to Jeju, I had a chance to visit the domestic one.
The lounge is located right next to Asiana’s lounge. As such, it is located landside and you need to clear the security after you visit the lounge.

While the lounge is nothing to write home about, at least the seating was a bit more varied than at the neighboring Asiana Lounge.
And, by varied, I mean that besides rows of sofa chairs there were also some tables for four.
Besides the seating area that took up most of the lounge, there was also a business center with some cubicles.
There was also an area with refreshments and some reading materials, as well as a couple of phone booths.
There was no restroom inside the lounge, but that was no problem given that the lounge was accessed through the hallway that also housed the public restrooms…
Food and Drinks Selection
There was a very limited selection of drinks – including canned Coke, orange juice, some Korean drink, bottled tomato juice, as well as tea and coffee.
As for bites to eat, there were some packaged snacks, but nothing else.
KAL Lounge Seoul Gimpo Domestic Terminal Summary
Just like with the Asiana Lounge, I do not recommend visiting this lounge unless you are transiting at Gimpo.
If you are coming from the city, I suggest you just go to the airport later. If you are transferring at Gimpo, going to the Lotte Mall which is within walking distance is a much more entertaining option.
At the same time, if your goal is to get some work done before your flight, the lounge is an OK place for that.
