The KMTNet (Korea Microlensing Telescope Network) was completed on October 2nd in 2015. There are three 1.6 m telescopes in Chile (CTIO), Australia (SSO) and South Africa (SAAO). The field of view of the CCD camera is 2 degree × 2 degree. We are monitoring and observing the bulge region for 24-hour continuous observations using the KMTNet telescopes. I present the characteristics of CCD camera and telescope, and the status of observation programs. We are still developing CCD cameras to accurate photometry. From the KMTNet data, we can obtain accurate 24-hour continuous time-series data for many variable stars.
