On August 17, an MBC representative shared, “Jun Hyun Moo, Lee Soo Geun, and Hyeri have been confirmed as the MCs for the ‘Idol Star Athletics Championships.'”
Additionally, it was revealed that the special will be only one episode. Since 2010, the special has always been split across two episodes, but for this year, it will only be one and include a new sporting event.
In particular, there is a lot of rising interest in the combination of Lee Soo Geun and Jun Hyun Moo. Hyeri is continuing as the MC from last year and many people are looking forward to the trio’s chemistry as they MC this year’s special.
The “Idol Star Athletics Championship” started as a Chuseok special in 2010 and has been the highest rated show amongst the three main channels during the holiday season.
