Abstract
Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT) is one of the largest next-generation ground telescopes whose diameter is 25.4m. It has been developed since 2003, and is expected to be finished by 2018. Korea officially joined the GMT project in 2009, and actively participates in the development. KASI (Korea Astronomy & Space Science Institute) and Korean astronomical society are planning several activities to enhance the capabilities in science research. Building a secondary mirror system is another activity Korea wants to develop. A prototype of the GMT secondary is being developed. Developing a spectrograph is another one. In this talk, I will present the plan of Korea's works for the GMT.
