    The 'Idol Star Athletics Championships' has been revived.

    According to a report on SportTVNews on the 11th, MBC 'IAC' will be recorded for two days on July 30th and August 1st.

    'IAC' is MBC's filial piety program that has been receiving love by viewers every holidays season. It was broadcast every year as a Chuseok special and a Lunar New Year special, but as the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19) intensified, it actually went into a hiatus after the '2020 Lunar New Year Special'.

    This time, 'IAC' will be held as a Chuseok special. It will be the first time in about two years since the '2020 Chuseok Special'. At that time, all indoor events were abolished and only sports and agility that could be held outdoors on a small scale were organized.

    After about two years of splendid revival, 'IAC' records various sports, including futsal, over two days. The recording on the 30th will be held at the public hall of the MBC new building in Sangam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul, and the recording on the 1st of August will be held at the Goyang Gymnasium.

    'IAC' is a program where idols compete in various sports events. With the birth of stars every year, expectations are growing as to which idol stars will play a major role this year.

    1. Is this just so that the idols can exchange numbers with each other?

    2. Idols put in so many hours of training for this just to appear 5 minutes on broadcast

    3. F*ck just thinking back about Woohyun, I'm upset to deathㅜㅜㅜㅠㅠㅠ

    4. Just thinking about the fact that Woohyun could've never been able to promote again pisses me offㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

    5. They half-ass the way they build those 'gymnasiums' and they don't even have medical teams onsite..

    6. Jinㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ He released a selca telling fans to not worry about him, that he was fine and to trust him. Was it at that time?ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

    7. They shoot for an entire day and some don't even have a screentime

    8. F*ck I f*cking hate seeing my brats get power tripped by MBC f*ckers, every time they come on broadcast, they get power tripped

    9. The fans are all boycotting this, do you think we're that easy MBC?

    10. My bias even wore a cast because of this... F*ck just seeing this annoys me


    let us gather around for the lord’s prayer:

    Nævis we love you. You are the one who protected me when i was in trouble. MY victory, one SYNK DIVE. I know your sacrifices. Let’s meet surely after the resurrection.



  • This is what I was talking about.

    I don't get why everybody was all up and cheering about IAC coming back

    IAC aint never do a good thing to a single idol. That series is a blight.


    Yeah because it's better to i jury ankle, knee, back, shoulder, elbow, wrist or neck in the basement of company building...

    I don't get your point. They're idols. If they get injured while practicing (miniscule chance of that) it's part of the job. Getting injured at the ISAC (which happens a lot.) does nothing for them. The series doesn't bolster Idol recognition and they compete just to satisfy MBC's nonsense rather than for any particular benefit to the groups participating.

    Add the long film times and the scandals that can draw their origins to it... ISAC is a program for bums.
