Prior to his debut at the 2018 Winter Olympics, Lim won the 1000 m and 1500 m events at the September 2017 Budapest leg of the 2017–18 ISU Short Track Speed Skating World Cup, where he placed ahead of fellow South Korean skater Hwang Dae-heon both times. In the same leg, Lim also placed second in the 500m event ahead of Hwang and behind Hungary’s Sándor Liu Shaolin. Lim continued on to the Seoul leg of the World Cup in November, where he was relatively less successful, reaching only the placement final in the 500 m event, and being disqualified in the 1000 m event following a collision with Russia’s Alexander Shulginov in the quarterfinal. Lim reached the gold medal final of the 1500 m event, but was also similarly disqualified.
