It has been proven that the Universe is mostly filled with what we cannot see; dark matter. The presence of dark matter had profound consequences on the evolution of the Universe. The Standard Model does not accommodate a suitable dark matter candidate. Therefore the existence of dark matter is a crucial phenomenological evidence for physics Beyond the Standard Model. The pressing goal of current and future dark matter experiments is to answer the question of whether dark matter interacts with normal matter other than gravity; i.e. if dark matter is detectable. Among the plethora of dark matter candidate particles, the Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) and the Axions are the most outstanding contender. In this talk, I will discuss about the axionic dark matter search projects at KAIST/IBS
