Taking the Airport Limousine Bus to Incheon International Airport is the most convenient way to go there. It is more expensive than the subway. The long flight of stairs in the subway will prove to be difficult for those carrying heavy luggage. Subway also requires a transfer at Gimpo Int'l Airport before proceeding to Incheon. Fare is W10T. You can take subway if you travel light to save on the fare.

Nestled around the Hangang River is the Korean capital Seoul, a city of old and new. With thousands years of history, it has well preserved royal palaces, historical relics, and cultural treasures, yet state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructures as well.
Seoul is a paradise for walking tourist with a highly developed public transportation system. The Seoul City Tour Bus and special buses such as museum/ gallery link buses, you can see the city conveniently and at a low cost. The Downtown tour runs from 9am to 9pm and the Palace tour from 9am to 5pm, every 30minutes (except Monday)
The Buses are a great way to get to and around Seoul. The airport line which runs from the Incheon airport is cheap, and a very comfortable ride with incredible scenery on the way into Seoul. They usually run every 15 mins to and from the city, and around the city. Once you are in Seoul, you can catch other lines to see other parts of the city. The airport line takes you past some beautiful palaces in Seoul, well worth taking a look at.
The local buses are very convenient. They cost 800 won or 80 cents. You can buy a T Money card at an LG convenience store for 1400 won (may be a little more or less). You then give them some money that they will electronically put the money on your card. You can then use the card on the bus or the subway. You just hold it up to the TMoney sign that looks just like your card. It's so great! They have routes up at every bus stop with all the main routes written in translated hangul. You can always call 1330 for information on what bus to take from anywhere. Just know where you will be able to catch it from (example, in front of a university or a subway station). And always ask on what side of the street to get it on. If you don't know WHEN to get off ask a young person. They usually speak a little English. They are shy but they do know some.
In oder to get to the city of seoul you will have to jump on too a airport limo. It's the only way to get to seoul ( besides a taxi, that would end up costing alot more ). You can find the ticket booth at the airport for the bus. You will find them realy helpful. It's about 7000 Won one way.
Use the Airport Limousine bus, the ride into Seoul was about 45 minutes and only cost 5,500 won (can pay using your passcard). The bus stops at major intersections all over Seoul. Your best bet is to stop at the info desk where you can get the passcard. Tell them where you want to stay and they'll give you the bus stop close to your accommodations. KAL Limousine is more expensive stops at major hotels.
From the Incheon International Airport it's easy and convenient to catch a bus to downtown Seoul. It seems that this may be a better option than going by taxi. The buses are somewhat inexpensive and also extremely comfortable with wide spaceous seating and easy to fall asleep in.
They also have curtains that can be pulled over the windows so as to minimize the incoming sunlight (making a nap all the more easier). No smoking is permitted on the buses (Good!).

and fast way to intercity in Korea.
