A representative of MBC recently revealed that this year’s “Idol star athletics championships” will be shot from August 19th to August 20th. According to OSEN, the show’s production crew has already sent the filming schedule to management agencies.
The show will be filmed on the end of August, so there will be enough time for the editing process to be done before the official broadcast in the Korean Thanksgiving Day, which will be on the end of September. This helps solve the last episodes’ problem, which is lack of sleep for idols due to packed filming schedule of the show.
This episode of “Idol star athletics championships” is reported to have no difference compared to the last ones, with eight categories including athletics, bowling, archery, rhythmic gymnastics, aerobics, etc.
“Idol star athletics championships” is the program made by MBC since 2010, in which idols compete in various sports. While fans are worrying about their idols having injuries because of taking part in this program, MBC continuously states that they will eliminate the categories that are dangerous and do their best for the celebrities’ safety.
