The Chuseok special that fans wait for every year, 'Idol Star Athletics Championship', ranked #1 in its time slot for both days it aired!


SEE ALSO: EXO, VIXX, BESTie, and Hong Jin Young win #1 + Performances from SBS' 'Star Faceoff' Chuseok special!


Despite it being the holiday time with most people choosing to spend time catching up with relatives rather than watching TV, the show managed to draw in an impressive amount of viewers with solid ratings that many regular variety programs would be satisfied with. According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, the September 19th broadcast of 'Idol Star Athletics Championship' achieved a 9.3% viewer rating followed by the September 20th broadcast which achieved a 8.1% viewer rating, showing the synergy effect of a mass gathering of idol stars.


Meanwhile, the other specials that aired during the same time slot, SBS' 'Star Faceoff' and KBS 2TV's 'Real Sports Fighting Spirit', also brought in idol stars but ended up not being able to top the athletic competition with 6.4% and 5.7% viewer rating, respectively.


Which special did you most enjoy watching during Chuseok?

the idol star athletics championship is a place where fans from other groups can interact. 
​where idols can be idiots with each other. 

where they can sorta relax and be themselves a bit.

among those things, its a place 

​where ships are celebrated and made.
​where fanservice is impeccable.

The soccer match was interesting! But it was disappointing with a lot of parts in the other segments being cut.

they've cut down so many parts. And they should really have equal amount of screen time for every idols instead just one or few.

well i think it's not suzy's fault and in the end it's about having a high ratings so i think they kept filming those who can give a high rating for the show..i guess

She's the single most expensive idol in SK right now, and others around her rank(SNSD for example) was not there. MBC probably made a concession to JYP, that she will get lots of screen time for her trouble. What surprised me was Rainbow got so much screen time.
