The Idol Star Athletics Championships, or ISAC, is gearing up to finally make its most-awaited return.

K-pop fans expressed their excitement to see how athletic the idols are after MBC announced last month that ISAC would come back after three years. It will be the first event in three years as the COVID-19 pandemic affected its broadcast.

Historically, it airs twice a year (during the Lunar New Year holiday and Chuseok, or Korean Thanksgiving holiday).

After a month since the announcement, the network dropped further details about it.
