Changsu Choi, Myungshin Im (CEOU/SNU), Tae-Woo Kim, Wonseok Kang (KYSC), on
behalf of a larger collaboration.

We observed the field of GRB 180205A (Evans et al., GCN 22381) with the 1m
telescope of Deokheung Optical Astronomy Observatory (DOAO) in Korea,
starting from 2018/02/05 11:22:11 for three consecutive nights.

We obtained B, V, R-band images and clearly detected the afterglow in a
series of 300s exposure images. The afterglow in R band The afterglow is
dimming at a rate of about 0.75 mag per day fon average rom 02/05 to 02/07
(Evans et al., GCN 22381; Zheng et al. GCN 22382; Bolmer et al. GCN 22383;
Tanvir et al. GCN 22384; Volnova et al. GCN 22387; Falcon et al. GCN 22380;
