Among her honors at international competitions are prizes at the International Music Competition of Bayreuth and Jean-Pierre Rampal International Flute Competition in Paris.
Ms. Kim is pursuing her career as an international soloist in Europe, America (North and South) and Asia, and regularly gives master classes in France and abroad. She has taught in Germany, Korea, Taiwan, Serbia, Japan, Slovenia, USA, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, England, Chile, Russia and United Arab Emirates, all by continuing her concert activity in Paris. She published 5 CD’s under Mandala/Harmonia Mundi, Harp and co and Anima records.

She currently is Professor at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris “Alfred Cortot” for Flute and and chair of department at the Conservatory CRD Issy Vanves in the Paris area. As a former aficionado of contemporary music, she has also been a member of the Ensemble Multilatérale and Ensemble l’itinéraire, Paris for about a decade (2004-2015). Since then, she turned her interests towards jazz - she was since then guided by the pianist and composer Ludovic de Preissac and Professor Ilan Salem from Tel Aviv. Ms Kim also collaborates with living composers such as Guy-Claude Luypaerts and Armando Ghidoni for new compositions.
Mihi Kim is a Miyazawa International Artist since 2003 as a 900/000 solid Platinum Flute player, and a proud owner of a 2022 released brand new Miyazawa CRESTA Platinumflute.
