On November 29th, MBC responds to the reports of bringing back “Idol Star Athletics Championships” special for 2018 Lunar New Year.
It was earlier reported that MBC would be airing the special during the upcoming Lunar New Year. Before the event was delayed indefinitely due to the MBC general strike, it was also revealed that for this year’s Chuseok special they would newly add bowling and aerobics categories.
When asked to confirm the news, a representative from MBC stated, “The reports are not true. We are currently focused on getting our regular broadcasts back on schedule. We haven’t even had a single discussion yet about the possibility of holding the ‘Idol Star Athletics Championships’ for the Lunar New Year.”
The “Idol Star Athletics Championships” is an event held by MBC every year since 2010 which has various idols participating in various sports events such as track and field events, archery, rhythmic gymnastics and aerobics. This year’s Chuseok special event was cancelled due to the company-wide general strike at MBC.
The return of “Idol Star Athletics Championships” next year, is yet not confirmed.
