A passionate educator, she regularly gives master classes at the Ewha University, Seoul Arts High School, Seoul Central Conservatory, Beautiful Mind Charity Academy in Korea and has a number of private students in Seoul.

Ms. Lim has performed in numerous festivals and concert halls in Paris, Luxembourg, Brussels, Munich, Frankfurt, Köln, Hamburg, Essen, Turin, Milan and other major venues in Europe, as well as the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Jordan Hall, Cité de la musique, Philharmonie de Paris,  Berlin Philharmonie Kammermusiksaal, Seoul Arts Center, and Hong Kong City Hall.
