The Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT) is a next generation extremely large telescope with 25m aperture, composed of seven 8.4m segmented mirrors. The GMT is being constructed at Las Campanas, Chile and will be in early operational stage in 2019. Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) is a founding member of the GMT consortium, representing Korea, and is playing an active role to realize this ambitious project in terms of construction, instrumentation, and science. We will give a brief overview of K-GMT Project with an expectation of close collaboration among East Asian communities in the era of 2020.
