This year's Chuseok special, 'Idol Star Athletics Championship, will reportedly be condensed into one episode, instead of the usual two-part event. 


Many seemed suspicious that the absence of SM Entertainment artists was the reason for the condensed show, with most of SM's artists and staff heading off on their 20th anniversary trip to Hawaii, scheduled around the same period as the Chuseok special. However, SM Entertainment was revealed to have no relation to the change. Rather, the reason was due to the numerous pilot programs airing during this holiday season.

    I've always hated Idol Championships. The only good thing were the fancams and the fan-idol interactions. So many of my faves ended up injured competing in these damn games over the years. And I spot with my little eyes 6 Infinite members smack in the front of that picture. With Hoya being too cool to wear his orange jacket. Poor Woohyun couldn't be a part of the WooYa dream team this year. No SHINee X Infinite interactions, Minho X Hoya X Woohyun dream team interactions. No Exo. No Xiumin X Dongwoo interactions. A very sad year for Idol Championship indeed.
