 We continued follow-up observation for host galaxy candidates (Paek et al,
GCN #27067) with the 1.0-m telescope at the Lemonsan Optical Astronomical
Observatory(LOAO), the 1.0-m telescope at the Deokheung Optical Astronomy
Observatory(DOAO), and the 0.61-m telescope ate the Sobaeksan Optical
Astronomy Observatory(SOAO) in the initial and updated localization area of
S200213t (Singer et al, GCN #27042) and overlapped neutrino detection area
(Hussain et al, GCN #27043).

 Each image was taken in R-band with 30 minutes exposure time. No obvious
transient has been identified. The list of the inspected targets is given
below, and upper limit(UL) is for 3-sigma detection.
