This year’s edition of MBC‘s ‘Idol Star Athletics Championship’ filmed for a record of 22 hours on January 28th, and this is the reason behind staff member’s and entertainment representative’s complaints.
The filming started at 7.00 am (the participants had to wake up around 4.00 am to have their makeup and hair done) and finished around 2.00 am the next morning. However, the final filming wrapped up at 5.00 am.
The artists that participated in the ‘Idol Star Athletics Championship’ had to spend almost the whole day at the set. Additionally, stars that were eliminated from the championship at the very beginning, couldn’t leave the set and had to give up on their schedules.
A representative of one entertainment company complained: ‘Our idols had five schedules the day after the Championship recording. I don’t know if they’ll be able to finish them being so tired.’
Another representative stated: ‘It was nearly imprisonment, not allowing the early eliminated idols to leave’.
