MBC’s Idol Star Athletics Championships (ISAC) celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. The filming for the Chuseok special of 2019 ISAC will be held on August 12 at Goyang Gymnasium and it will air in September over the Chuseok holiday.
2019 ISAC will include five regular events – track and field (men’s/women’s 60 m individual / 400 m relay), archery, ssireum (Korean wrestling), baseball pitching (females only), penalty shoot-out (males only) – as well as three new events, which include e-sports (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds), equestrianism, and spacing out (special fun event).
Fans are excited about the introduction of e-sports due to the minimized risk of injuries for their favorite idols.
As far as SM groups are concerned, it has been confirmed that Red Velvet and NCT 127 will attend. Seulgi and Wendy will participate in baseball pitching; Johnny, Doyoung, and Mark will compete in archery; Johnny, Yuta, and Jaehyun will do penalty shoot-outs, while Haechan will be the floor MC.
Check out the full expected lineup below! Who are you most excited to see?
The filming for ISAC’s e-sports category will take place on August 20. NCT DREAM’S Renjun, Jaemin, Chenle, and Jisung will participate, as well as many more. Stay tuned!
