The show for Lunar New Year 2019 will be filmed Jan. 7 at the Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium.

Past events, such as track and field, archery and rhythmic gymnastics, will return. The new addition of a penalty shoot-out match has been created as fans had said they preferred not to have a full soccer game that might cause injuries to participating K-pop artists.

The bowling match, which gained popularity last year, will be recorded Jan. 14 at an arena in Seoul. The specific venue has to yet to be named, but Yura of Girl’s Day, Shindong of Super Junior and comedian Kim Shin-young were announced as hosts for the event.

“ISAC” will air during Korea’s Seollal holiday in February 2019.
