1984 (2016), Performance, 6 minutes and 37 seconds

In 1984 (2016), Lim directed three non-Korean male speakers to read excerpts of President Park Geun-hye's apology speech that was made after the Sewol incident in 2014.  

While President Park's three male secretaries who are so-called the Three Doorknobs—문고리 삼인방—has been influencing the president, Lim questions the sincerity of the president's speech because she has been acting based on the directions given by her advisors.
