MBC’s representative holiday show Idol Star Athletics Championships is back.
According to Mydaily, Idol Star Athletics Championships (ISAC), which had been suspended in the aftermath of the COVID-19, is officially coming back for the first time in two years. The production team has already started preparing for the Chuseok Special (Korean Thanksgiving).
First broadcast in 2010, ISAC features celebrities, mostly Korean pop idols and groups, competing in multi-sport events.
However, the production got hampered by the spread of the virus. The last time ISAC aired was in January 2020, when idols went head-to-head in various sporting events during the 2020 New Year Special. A year later, ISAC invited a few K-pop stars to look over the highlights of some of the best matches for the 2021 New Year Special. But no separate event was held for the 2021 Chuseok Special and 2022 New Year Special.
