FTISLAND’s Lee Hong Ki and professional broadcaster Jeon Yong Joon returned as MCs for this year’s event, and the lineup of competitors included ATEEZ; a “United Team” consisting of Ha Sung Woon, Kim Jae Hwan, and UP10TION’s Kim Woo Seok and Lee Jin Hyuk; EVERGLOW; VERIVERY; CRAVITY; Xdinary Heroes; MCND; TEMPEST; YOUNITE; LIGHTSUM; TAN; and CLASS:y.
Check out the results from the event below! (You can also check out the results from Day 1 of ISAC 2022 here.)
The first round of competition was an individual game in which all 48 idols went head-to-head with no teams.
The game ultimately ended in a thrilling shootout between TEMPEST’s LEW (Lee Eui Woong), Ha Sung Woon, and CRAVITY’s Wonjin, with LEW emerging the final victor.
The next round was a game in which the idols split up into pairs of two. The final four teams were ATEEZ’s San and Yunho, VERIVERY’s Minchan and Yongseung, MCND’s BIC and Huijun, and EVERGLOW’s Mia, who managed to survive on her own without her partner.
In the end, VERIVERY’s Minchan found himself battling MCND’s BIC and Huijin on his own—and the MCND duo ultimately won the game.
The third and final game of the event was a thrilling battle between the squads of four.
The final two squads were MCND and YOUNITE, with gold medalists BIC and Huijun from the duo game surviving on the MCND team to face off against YOUNITE’s Kyungmun, Woono, and Sion.
After BIC was taken out, Huijun valiantly fought a 1:3 battle against the YOUNITE members before YOUNITE ultimately took home the gold.
