130 Idols Confirmed for Idol Star Swimming Championships

Last year’s MBC Chuseok special of Idol Star Athletics was a smash hit. This year, MBC is duplicating it with a twist, gathering 130 Kpop idols for a Lunar New Year special Idol Star Athletics and Swimming Championships.
Idol Star Swimming and Athletics Championships will be broadcasted as a two-day special for February 5th and 6th, pitting 130 Kpop idols against each other in water matches. The athletics championships will be recorded at the Seoul Songpa-Gu Jamsil Stadium and Gymnasium, with a total of 24 races including the 100m sprints, 50m hurdle, and high jump.
Confirmed Kpop celebrity attendees are 2PM, 2AM, TRAX, T-ara, miss A, Brown Eyed Girls, BEAST, SHINee, Son Ho Young, SECRET, SISTAR, IU, After School, Lee Hyun (of 8eight), f(x), NS Yoonji, and MBLAQ. Unfortunately, SNSD will not be able to participate due to their Japanese promotions, while Kpop singer UEE’s attendance is also yet to be comfirmed.
PD Kim Yoogun stated,
“We’re cooperating with the National Athletics Federation for these championships. Foreign nations receive a lot of popularity through the World Cup or the Olympics, however for Korea, we haven’t been able to expose this department even during big events. Through these Idol Athletics and Swimming championships, we’d like it if the nation’s athletics and swimming fields received more interest from the general public.”
You’ll be watching out for that, won’t you?
