Filming has officially begun for 2018 Idol Star Athletics Championships‘ Chuseok holiday special, which will air sometime in September. ISAC is an exciting, and controversial, sports competition where idols face off in events like wrestling, archery, and relay races. Many viewers look forward to the event’s behind the scenes moments just as much they look forward to the main event because it’s rare to have so many different idols together in one place. Here’s what everyone has been up to so far!
1. Being bored AF
ISAC is supposed to be fun, but Stray Kids‘ Hyunjin looks like he could really use a nap! His stay-awake roll might just be the next viral meme.
i love that they don’t even try to pretend that isac isn’t a complete waste of their time pic.twitter.com/53BRLiWHOt

He wasn’t the only bored idol though.
Many idols, including TWICE, were spotted taking naps.
Fans snapped these photos of many stars lazing around between events.
ISAC seems to involve just as much waiting around…
…as it does playing sports!

At one point, TWICE and Stray Kids entertained their audience by dancing to TWICE’s “Dance the Night Away”. Now, who wants a collab?

NCT‘s Jeno was spotted hugging/strangling Chenle on the field. Chenle didn’t look too crazy about getting all that love. In fact, he seemed like he couldn’t wait for the next event to start!
Look at Changbin and Hyunjin being gay in the ISAC 😂

Hyunjin, on the other hand, didn’t mind getting pampered.

BONUS: EXO Sehun’s embarrassing case of mistaken identity is still one of the most hilariously awkward moments in ISAC history.
