International to International Connection at Gimpo

Hi everyone!
Does anyone know if it is possible to do an international to international connection at Gimpo Airport?
Would I need to go through immigration or can I just stay airside?
It is a one-hour connection, so I'd prefer not to risk getting stuck in the immigration line.

I don't recall ever seeing a transit channel at Gimpo.
One hour is easy enough to clear both entry and departure immigration, I don't
think I have ever waited more than 5 minutes at Gimpo since ICN opened, however you may risk
missing the check-in deadline of your second carrier.

Is this really a " connection" - 2 flights on one ticket? Or is it 2 separate tickets with you gambling
on everything going right?

Thanks for replying.
This is not a connection per se. That is why I'm worried. I don't remember seeing a transit channel as well. I guess I'll just take an earlier flight and go get some Korean barbecue.
