KAL744, They just opened a Hyatt Regency at ICN. Not sure what the facilities are like there. PUS is a little difficult due to the combined civil/military use. I would not recommend trying to take any photos in or outside the terminals. Hope this helps.

I was also going to mention the new Hyatt Regency at ICN, but haven't stayed there yet so can't comment on its location. Another option is the Mayfield hotel (very nice 5 star hotel) at GMP airport - and right across the road from my main office, KE Headquarters! While this hotel is not in a perfect location, you can see aircraft on short final from its vicinity.
If I can help anymore, drop me an email.

Jeju is great for spotting. The airport is only minutes away from downtown Jeju city. Lots of KE and OZ aircraft in all sizes come in troughout the day, but nothing else realy. It's easy to walk from the terminal building to the fences surrounding the apron.

I don't know if things have changed, but six years ago I was at Kimpo and they had a great observation deck on top of the terminal. I tried taking some pictures and security told me pretty quick not to take any photos.

I have been quite a lot of times and Kimpo and I have never been harassed by the authorities. However, there are some pretty good spots at the runway thresholds, provided you have a car. As for the terrace, as it was on top of what was the domestic terminal, there's now not much to be seen apart from KE,OZ,KE,KE,OZ, you get it.
ICN also has some good spots for approach shots, but again, you need a vehicle. Forget about runway shots as most airports in Korea have very high walls and military guarding the perimeter :
