The lounge agent then asks for tickets, and only after that does the blogger seem to suggest that they presented their boarding pass. if that's the actual order, that in itself is a bit weird.

We arrived at the Korean Airlines lounge at New York’s JFK just before they opened, and were the first guests as they opened the door. The first of two lounge attendants clarified that it was only for business class passengers (obviously). Despite wearing business casual attire, Moral Code luggage, and a Rimowa Topas carry-on it was incredulous to her that we qualified. She asked to see the tickets before allowing us further to checkin, then sweetened once we revealed them.

We submitted our boarding passes at the desk and were told we were not permitted entry because we had economy tickets by the second of two lounge attendants.
regardless of what order the things happened in, it seems incredulous to me that a lounge agent would refuse entry when a legitimate J boarding pass is produced. there's something odd to the story that the blogger's one-sided account is not fully disclosing.
