Idol Star Athletic Championships 2015 Stirs Up Trouble

News via seoulbeats.com

Then, there was GOT7s Jackson and Jr. During the event, both members sustained injuries (this being Jackson’s second in as many events). However, the attention turned to them full force when the pair was snapped wearing slings and casts while at the airport. JYP Entertainment was quick to say that the injuries were not serious, and simply bruises. Marks father and most famous resident GOT7 fanboy, took to Twitter to voice his concern regarding the matter, essentially echoing the concerns of K-pop fans. However, it seems GOT7 was relatively fine, since they performed at the NetEase Music Battle soon after.

Understandably, injuries are to be expected when pursuing athletic endeavors, rather professionally or recreationally. Anybody whos ever played a game in their backyard can attest to that. Fans are also rightfully concerned about injuries, since idol bodies are important. How else will they be able to dance and sing day in and day out?

The question remains whether or not the ISAC should continue. What exactly is to gain from these athletic competitions other than perhaps visibility in the mass of K-pop groups? I suppose the chance to be seen on TV will help the nugu status, but just because youre on television for a split second doesnt mean people will actually start following your career.

We were probably the ones who appeared the most [in the games], but there was no "pink atmosphere.""
