TV calendar a hot item again


“Infinite Challenge” Members

With the new year fast approaching, fans of the popular entertainment show “Infinite Challenge” on MBC are getting the chance to spend more time with their favorite stars, thanks to a calendar that features the members of the program.

MBC started selling the calendar on Friday at many online shopping malls, including D&Shop and GS Shop, and the broadcaster says demand has been so high that it has slowed down those shopping websites.

MBC posted a message noting that the high demand for the calendar was disrupting several websites selling the calendar.

While the broadcaster has said that the calendar would be delivered starting from Dec. 4, many fans are wondering if the program will make a special episode again featuring members of the show delivering the calendars in person.

While that has been a popular episode of “Infinite Challenge” in past years, one official at the show told local media that the producers are worried people might grow sick of seeing the same gimmick each year.

“Infinite Challenge” has been making calendars since 2007.
