All idol fans look forward to holidays like Chuseok and Korean New Year's because it means the return of the 'Idol Star Athletics Championships' series on MBC

But as it happens, injuries, upsets, and more were unavoidable at this year's competition, adding fuel to some arguments that the 'ISAC' series needs to be canceled altogether. After the show's airing for the Chuseok holidays on September 15, fans from several fandoms, including VIXX fans, BTOB fans, and BTS fans, laid out an assortment of complaints toward MBC

VIXX and BTS fans complained that despite confirmed accounts of Jin's nose injury or Leo's nose injury, MBC edited out both scenes entirely, then stated at the end of the broadcast that the competition "wrapped up successfully without any major injuries." Others who supposedly attended the recording claimed that the rails and parts of the floor were wet and slippery, but the staff members merely attempted to clean up the wet spots with the bottoms of their shoes. These fans couldn't contain their anger toward the show's captions, which kept commenting that idols fell while racing "because they couldn't control their speed." 

BTOB fans also voiced their complaints after seeing Minhyuk injure his knee during the mens' 60 meter dash. In his preliminary round, fans stated that the staff called out Minhyuk for a false start 4 times. However, during the round, fans said even they could hear the gun making a click-like sound before actually going off each time and reasoned that Minhyuk, who has fast reflexes, kept reacting to the sound of the click. During one of the false start calls, Minhyuk even fell and injured his knee for which he's had surgery previously.

But in the midst of fans' complaints, the '2016 Idol Star Athletics Championships' managed to come out at the top in viewership ratings for variety shows on the 15th. 

What do you think about the fans' complaints?

guys the fans arent complaining about the injuries but rather MBC pretending that some of the injuries didnt happen

RockyM Friday, September 16, 2016

Here's the thing, I totally understand if anyone got injured due to unkempt grounds or things like that. A slippery floor that wasn't properly cleaned, and an idol slipped and injured themselves, ok that makes sense. However, to start complaining about other injuries (i.e. Jin and Leo's nose - I believe these happened due to another person), is ridiculous. People get injured all the time playing sports, welcome to the world of athletics. I'm a dancer and can get injured all the time. That's the way of the world. People are making a big deal out of this because they are idols - they are people who fans have put on a high pedestal and good heavens if anything happens to them. People get injured all the time, and it heals. Not like it is going to last forever. To say to cancel the shows just because of an injury - which again will HEAL - is telling an idol to stop doing physical activities of any kind because guess what you can hurt yourself doing absolutely anything. Go live in a bubble if you don't want to get hurt.

Hurhurhur RockyM Friday, September 16, 2016

I'm pretty sure they're not complaining because of the injuries, but because MBC edited out and pretended it never happened.

Yoruni RockyM Friday, September 16, 2016

Read the article they weren't complaining simply because of injuries but because MBC edited out all the scenes where the idols got injured and even said the event ended with a clean end

RockyM Yoruni Friday, September 16, 2016

I have read the article, and I understand the fans' resentment towards all of that. Pretending things never happened is just wrong. But I've also read the other articles where it just focused on the injuries first (nothing was stated about anything being edited out) and people were complaining about that. Saying to cancel the show because they got injured. Still though I don't see it right to cancel a show based on poor editing - that happens with every program on television.

SugarFree RockyM Sunday, September 18, 2016

This. People were complaining about the injuries before the show even aired.

ryoshou Friday, September 16, 2016

if they should stop this, then the idols have to stop doing sports in general (tell that to minhyuk or jota or other athletic idols) and they have to stop promoting so long, they have to stop dancing for 24 hours/day, they have to stop walking, they have to stop getting up. In order of them not getting injured, no dancing, no concerts, no liveshows, nothing anymore......just laying in bed and do nothing.

Welst ryoshou Saturday, September 17, 2016

=_= the fans aren't angry that their idols got hurt, it's the fact that MBC did not make public that the idol's got hurt.

Ashmy99 ryoshou Saturday, September 17, 2016

Fans are asking mbc to cancel this show and CHANGE IT TO A DANCE SPECIAL/ A SINGING SPECIAL/ VARIETY SPECIAL just something that the idols do well in because 1. Not all idols are great at sports but all are required to attend or else they'd be blacklisted from any mbc shows unless they hv valid reasons like overseas concerts or extreme injuries ( extremely popular grps get special treatment tho) 2. There's cool kiz on the block/in the past, dream team for them sporty kids to show off their skills

Firearmy Friday, September 16, 2016

I could not forget that faggot from nugu zea, he hurt my oppa so bad and suddenly he got drama role? Stop coatriding fame like your fellow member fag kwanghee

ryoshou Firearmy Friday, September 16, 2016

Wow you freaking homphob bitch. You are seriously the worst, typical fucking army. Seriously, i'm so done with your stupid fandom and your stupid group. I'm no longer go accept your behaviour quietly. Nobody should do that anymore, nobody should ever support BTS and Army in the future anymore.

ryoshou Firearmy Friday, September 16, 2016

and you are 23 years old? Don't make me laugh, you behave like a 12 year old, grow the fuck up, you homophobic cow.

sorry but, BTS' music is some of the best

JungkookxYonghwa ryoshou Friday, September 16, 2016

It's a troll, mate. Don't even waste your time. Don't blame it on BTS or real ARMYs because this "person" (lol) is doing it on purpose.

Hurhurhur ryoshou Friday, September 16, 2016

I'm sorry, but if you've been around allkpop for more than two weeks, you should know that this Firearmy person isn't a real fan. In fact, there's a pretty high chance that it's another fan from a different fandom trying to make ARMYs look bad(or maybe she's just a crazy bitch, who knows). And also, are you that dumb? Do you really think that every single ARMY is like this brainless bitch of a commenter? Because you're seriously mistaken. Every fandom has people like her. If you think no one should support BTS because of fans like her, then, going by your standards, no group should be supported, ever. Why? Because, I repeat for emphasis, EVERY. FANDOM. HAS. A. HEFTY. LOAD. OF. SHITTY. FANS. They CANNOT CONTROL WHO THEIR FANS ARE. It is not BTS's fault that people like Firearmy like them(or pretend to like them), and the fact that you think no one should support BTS because of her is baseless and immature.

siwanniee Firearmy Friday, September 16, 2016

Please don't go around saying stuff like this. Dongjun has already apologized; it was an accident. There is even accounts from fans there that said he kept apologizing over and over and looked really sorry every time he saw the army section there. Please don't hate on our Dongjunnie because of this accident, and I hope in the future you'll listen to all the facts before posting something like this. let's just hope for a great future for both ZE:A and BTS instead of giving out hate! - a ZE:A STYLE

well, its no surprise that Idols getting injured every time in ISAC because they overwork themselves by performing and competing in sports

cococcchanel Friday, September 16, 2016

Reading only the headline, my first thought was that, at least, they get to watch the damn competition, what do they have to complain about? However, after reading the article, I can understand their concerns if the accusations are true. Though, accidents and injuries can happen no matter how much security and safety one have prepared. Perhaps, it wasn't all because of the staff's negligence.

iisstf28 Friday, September 16, 2016

ISAC will never end if you keep watching it -_-

inspirite97 iisstf28 Friday, September 16, 2016

no one wants it to end tf people just want better standards to be put in place.

SugarFree inspirite97 Sunday, September 18, 2016

Plenty of people have called for it to end.

LilBmw Friday, September 16, 2016

minhyuk... no, I hope he's okay
