Lounge Access in Transit

I have about a 12 hour layover at ICN in about a month and I was wondering if it is possible to access the lounge for a little bit and then leave the airport, explore Seoul, and then return to the airport for my next flight

Thanks

I tried this in August 2016 and I couldn't do it. The lounge is airside, past transfer security, and I don't think there is any way back out once you are airside.

If you want to visit the city you should do that first, then hit the lounge when you get back.
