2020 Idol Star eSports Championships – Chuseok Special” was the winner of the battle for the most buzz during the Chuseok holidays!

Chuseok, commonly known as the Korean equivalent of Thanksgiving, fell on October 1 this year and the holidays began on September 30. Many networks aired special programing during the holiday break. While MBC usually broadcasts the “Idol Star Athletics Championships” over the holidays, the special could not film indoors this season due to social distancing guidelines.

MBC therefore turned its popular eSports event from the championships into a stand-alone special that filmed outside and aired on October 1. It featured idols facing off in the battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and racing game KartRider. In addition, idols and their pet dogs teamed up for MBC’s “2020 Idol Star Dog-agility Championships – Chuseok Special” that aired the next day.
