147,100 won each way in "Standard" Class (so 94,200 won return).
Standing/unassigned tickets are 41,600 won each way on weekdays and 40,000 each way on weekends (so 83,200 or 80,000 won return).
You can check prices here http://www.korail.com/en/rv/pr21100/w_pr21110.jsp Remember that the KTX does not go to Gyeongju station (in the center of the city). It goes to Singyeongju station (New Gyeongju station) which is located a quite a bit out of the city.

2Look at the passes on offer as they might be cheaper (I'm not 100% certain of the costs of these as they are cheaper for tourists than those with residents visas.
Also how many of you are traveling? Of 3 or more it's cheaper to buy a table seat where you get 4 seats and pay the cost of 2 and 1/2 seats. These usually book up in advance on weekends but you might be lucky on a weekday. You will probably have to go to the train station to book as they don't show on the English website.
