Contrary to previous plans, MBC’s “Idol Star Athletics Championships” will be maintaining its usual format of airing the season’s sporting events over two parts.
On September 8, MBC stated that the show will be split up over two episodes, as it has been in previous seasons. Both episodes will air during the Chuseok holiday on September 15, with part one running from 5:15 p.m. to 6:35 p.m. KST, and part two airing from 6:35 p.m. KST to 7:55 p.m.
It was previously announced that the show would be cut down to only one episode for this year’s Chuseok special, but plans have changed. The events this season included rhythm gymnastics, futsal, archery, and track. Idol groups that took part include BTS, GOT7, TWICE, VIXX, MAMAMOO, and many more!
