ISAC Is Coming Back — But Can It Top These 10 Iconic Moments?
The Idol Star Athletic Championship (commonly referred to as ISAC) is undoubtedly a favorite for fans as they get to see not only their favorite idols showcase their athleticism, but they get to see lots of group interactions and chaotic moments.
The popular sports event was temporarily canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But now it appears that the Idol Star Athletic Championships are slated to continue.
Since ISAC is reportedly coming back, here are ten iconic moments from previous years.
1. SHINee’s antics
SHINee always proved their effortless humor, whether that was through trimming leg hair, applying sunscreen, yawning, or, in the case of Minho, competing like his life was on the line.

2. SEVENTEEN’s DK breaking the camera
Everyone was in absolute shock at his perfect shot, although he certainly isn’t the only idol to have accidentally broken a camera lens.

SEVENTEEN having Vernon phone cases was also definitely an iconic moment.
3. EXO’s Sehun confusing SEVENTEEN’s Jeonghan with NCT’s Johnny
Perhaps one of the most iconic ISAC moments, EXO‘s Sehun will likely never live the hysterical mistake down.
