We observed the optical counterpart of GRB 201020A (E. Ambrosi et al., GCN
#28696; R. Adachi et al., GCN #28697; J.P. Osborne et al., GCN #28698; V.
Lipunov et al., GCN #27800, S.Y. Fu et al., GCN #28701; S. Belkin et al.,
GCN #28703, T. Pankov et al., GCN #28708, and H. Kumar et al., GCN #28711)
with the 1-m class telescope in Deokheung Optical Astronomy Observatory
(DOAO). We calibrated flux with PS1 catalog and use AB magnitude system.
