10 hour layover

Got a 10-hour stopover at Incheon (arrive 9:45am, depart 8pm) in and out of T1. I'd like to see a little of Korea and grab some lunch; any suggestions?

Hongdae is the only answer, really. Can take the local AREX train easily, no change of subway lines. Land 9:45 on the train by 11, arrive in Hongdae by 12, leave by 5 PM, back to airport at 6 for 8 PM flight. Check out not only Hongdae area itself, but Yeonnam-dong and Yeonhui-dong TONS of cafes and restaurants and shopping.

You could also technically go into the center of Seoul for more traditional sights like palaces, markets, etc. BUT that walking and moving around between sites will eat up your time.

Consider a free transit tour offered at the airport.

This sounds like a good option for my next layover. If it's 14 hour layover, do I, as a US passport citizen/holder, require any kind of visa or special entry requirement? Or is US passport alone sufficient?

I think I found my answer: from April 1, 2023 to December 31, 2024, US Citizens are not required to complete the electronic visa application. Hope i am understanding it right.
