We could not find a non-stop flight from Tokyo to Chengdu using our United miles so we booked a flight with a layover in Seoul. We flew economy from Tokyo Narita to Seoul (there were no business class flights available) but since we had a business class flight from Seoul to Chengdu, we spent our time in Seoul at the Asiana Business Class lounge.
The Asiana business class lounge was large and comfortable with many different places to sit.
We preferred the seats pictured below as they were more private and allowed us to charge our laptop.
The lounge had four semi-enclosed private areas to sit.
Free wifi was available throughout the lounge. There were also a few rooms with desktops but they were too dark to take photos.
The lounge did not offer a huge variety of food or beverages although the croissants, nuts and pretzels were tasty.
Overall, while the Asiana business class lounge did not have a large selection of food, it was a very comfortable lounge with plenty of seating.

We’ll be flying through ICN next month and was curious which lounge for Asiana Business Class was ‘better’? I read there are 2. Which did you visit?
Hi Tony, I believe we visited the one in the main terminal. Seems like this is bigger and more modern rather than the one in the satellite terminal but we only visited this one so don’t know for sure which is best.
We have 3 hours there, trying to work out which one to spend time in, maybe we should visit both?
