Following reports that the upcoming "2017 Idol Star Athletics Championships," which usually airs during Chusoek, has been cancelled, MBC have released a new statement clarifying the event's recording schedule.
According to MBC's statement, due to the ongoing MBC employee strike, the scheduled filming dates for the "2017 Idol Star Athletics Championships" have been canceled while the program itself has only been tentatively postponed.
It was previously stated by MBC that recording for the "2017 Idol Star Athletics Championships" would continue as planned on September 4 and 11 regardless of the strike, and that filming would be completed using supplementary workers, though MBC's latest statement makes this highly unlikely now.
MBC have yet to confirm a new filming date for the event, and we'll update this story accordingly once a statement is released.
