□ Daejeon Mayor Huh Tae-Jung said in a written congratulatory speech, "Many events and festivals were not held due to the corona, and most of them were non-face-to-face even if they were held," and added, "I sincerely thank the writers for their beauty and various styles of Daejeon despite their difficulties in planning and displaying their works.“
□ On the other hand, the awards ceremony was held with only major winners on a scale smaller than in previous years to prevent the spread of corona.
