To start off the new year, MBC will be hosting another 'Idol Athletic Championship' featuring 100 of your favorite idol stars.
Some names mentioned included ZE:A, SISTAR, Nine Muses, KARA, miss A, 4minute, INFINITE, B1A4, TEEN TOP, Dalmatian as well as rookie groups such as BTOB and TAHITI (Keep in mind that this is not a complete list).
A representative from the agency of one of the idol groups revealed, "After being confirmed of their appearance, they practiced separately during their busy schedule."
Another representative stated, "There are many idol stars who have really focused on practicing. Because the viewer ratings are good, and a lot of spotlight is given, they all have competitive spirits. In the case of top idols, they try to be more careful of their bodies to prevent injuries. But rookie groups are participating with a lot more zeal in order to gain attention. The idols have already started their battle of dignity."
The 'Idol Athletic Championship' special will be recorded on the 28th and will be broadcast at a later date.
