I'm currently serving a 5 year ban from entering Malaysia. I'm planning to go Korea by AirAsia or Malaysian Airlines from Singapore to Seoul Incheon Airport. However, there is a transit at KLIA. Is it possible for me to take this route? or should I take the more expensive direct flights instead? Transit at KLIA, no need scan passport right?

Usually International connecting flight at the same terminal does not require you to proceed through the Customs Immigration Quarantine if you have short transit period. Passengers with immediate international connecting flights and boarding passes may proceed directly to the departure hall.

Call Immigration department at KLIA to get clarification.

If one has any issues with Immigration before, go for direct flights. The risks outweigh the fares savings.

Take note that for the Seoul Incheon Airport, recently, there were some complaints of people denied entry without giving proper reasons, Australia airports, New Zealand too.

Those who are banned for 5 years anywhere, are high risks travelers if still using the old passports.
