KIMS (Korea Invisible Mass Search) experiment has run its 100kg setup for last three years. We have given a new WIMP interaction rates for spin-independent and spin-dependent limits with 24524 kgdays data. We have further analyzed for the annual modulation amplitude with the last 3 years data. An analysis will be presented which has a limit comparable to DAMA's modulation amplitude. We have recently studied in detail and identified for the major internal and external background sources. Perspectives for KIMS experiment will be presented.
