      Yes, there is a special walk way from AREX airport train arrival to LINE 4 platform to go Heohyeon (walking about 5 minutes).
      If you want to avoid the hassle of changing train line at Seoul Station, you can take bus 6001 at Incheon Airport that will bring you direction Hoehyeon Station. You need to alight alight at Namdaemun Market (Hoehyeon Station) bus stop. Bus ticket KRW15000 can be bought at arrival hall.
