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.

Unfortunately for fans of the 'Idol Star Athletic Championship', the show will be cut down into one episode for the first time in six years.

    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.

    and I thought it meant it would be less time consuming.. cuz idols straining themselves for such a dumb thing has been annoying me for the past years.. every damn time someone hurts themselves and I hear about this shit going on for almost a whole day (12 hours+).. as if idols don't have anything better to do than strain themselves even more with the schedules they already have

    i hope they make the one episode show longer tho.. bc i swear one episode is not enough to film the sports event, and i always look forward to this event every year.. *sobs*

    i found this show boring, i don´t know if its just me but really i prefer seen the fancams rather tham the actual broadcast =/. it would be ten times more interesting that instead of competing in regular sport events( like archery, footbal, and running) they create circuits like you see  on running man games or lets go dream team , those show are way more interesting and we could see idols interacting between each other more than we see now ¬¬, until now i don´t see the point on putting differents kgroups on the same color when they play only with their own members ¿? .
