12 Hours in Seoul - What to do?

From the time we land to depart, we've got 12 hours. We travel light, but will need to get in/back to ICN on international flights. What do you recommend? 

We're 2 in our late 20s, typically pretty active, but know Seoul will likely be different. We've got a stop-over in late December.

    You can visit RODEO. It's the street with 24hr open shops and it also has a lot of unique korean cafe and coffee shops. Another very interesting street with cheap clothes is Hongdae (seoul is the best city to shop, you can buy lots of stuff and still save money) If you are seeking for all in one shopping here are some great stores like Hyundai Department Store, Galleria Department Store, Lotte Department Store. These kind of department stores has luxury brands, lots of korean cosmetics, food courts.

    If you are interested in korean cosmeticsMyeong-dong (Etude House, Face shop and etc) visit Myeong-dong

    I'd suggest a visit to the Insadong area. There's a lot going on down there, and it's a good introduction to Seoul. You'll be near a few palaces and museums - and it's just fun to walk around down there.

    But if you want to try something very distinctively Korean, find a jim jil bang (a Korean spa). It's the ultimate place to kill 3-4 hours!

    12 hours and getting back to Incheon, I would visit Gyeongbokgung(Gyeongbokgung) Palace and Insadong (Insa-dong). Gyeongbokgung Palace is the biggest and the most famous palace in Seoul. It's definitely worth the visit if you're a first timer. And then there's a traditional street called Insa-dong where you can try out traditional Korean food and buy some souvenirs. There are a lot to look at. If you have some time left, then head to Myeong-dong which is a big shopping district.
