Both programs, which made every effort to prevent COVID-19, gathered attention by holding outdoor games. In the welcome of fans and viewers after the decision to cancel the indoor game with no spectators, e-Sports and Agility, the first dog sport in Korea was confirmed as each Chuseok special program. As a result, it received attention as a smart choice to continue the life of the ‘Idol Championship’, a national holiday program that radiates various charms of idols, and was criticized for being’simple’.

It is a game in which handlers and dogs quickly jump through various obstacles as the word means agility, and is already a popular dog sport abroad.
Idols and their dogs have been training with bonds and sympathies for about two months, and they have become more special and have felt a small but big change, raising expectations. In particular, there are pet dogs that stand out as a player dog, and there are also people who are impressed with their heartfelt stories, and a drama was completed.
Competitors include Yoobin and Kongbin, GOT7 Young-jae and Coco, Mamamoo Moon-byul and Jackpot, Lucky, Health, Lovelyz Ji-soo and Woojoo, Rocket, Kim Woo-seok and Tata, WJSN Subin and Lucky, Golden Child Bong Jae-hyun and Bong-gu, Golden Child Choi Bo-min and Joy, (G)I-dle Shu Hua and Haku, Loona Hee-jin and Tori, and Loona Choi Ri and Lucky have finished recording.
