 By Airport Railroad + Subway
Step 1: Airport Railroad (The AREX Line Map) 

  The Airport Railroad Express (AREX) is also convenient because it follows a timetable. It operates between
   Incheon International Airport and Seoul Station, for which travel time is 53 minutes by commuter train and
   43 minutes by express train. 
  Fare: 3,700 Korean won for commuter trains and 13,300 Korean won for express trains

Step 2: Subway (The Subway Line Map)

From Seoul Station,
Buy a ticket to Sangwolgok Station (Subway Line 6 (the Tan color line))
Standard tickets can be purchased at the ticketing machines or at the ticket office.
Board the train and get off at Dongmyo Station
Transfer to Line 6 taking the Bonghwasan Station bound direction and get off at Sangwolgok (KIST) Station
Exit the subway station through Exit 4
Walk straight about 100 meters and turn left at the small street leading to KIST's north gate.

 By Taxi (Easiest option but expensive)
Taxis are conveniently located just outside the terminal building. The grey or white taxis are standard and somewhat cheaper than the black “deluxe” taxis. The deluxe taxis are a little more comfortable and drivers sometimes speak English, but the standard ones are perfectly adequate for most trips. Both taxi services operate on a metered system, but the passenger will also be responsible for the cost of highway tolls. The cost will vary depending on traffic conditions, but generally runs about 70,000 won for standard taxis and 90,000 won for black taxis.
