Bomanbridge Places 200-Plus Hours in Korea


Bomanbridge Media has licensed more than 200 hours of content, including the animated series Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot, to a number of broadcasters in South Korea.

The Care Bears show is headed to CJ ENM’s new English-learning channel GEM, which also went for the second and third installments of Scout and the Gumboot Kids. The former comes from Cloudco Entertainment, while the latter is from Sinking Ship Entertainment.

KBS picked up such docs as Baby Animals in the Wild and Queen of the Hunt, while EBS licensed Secret Lives of Owls and the second season of Oddbods from One Animation. SkyTV and Kids1TV also both acquired Oddbods‘ 5-minute shorts.

Meanwhile, JEITV picked up factual-entertainment programming, including Chef in Your Ear from HLP+ Partners/The Format People; On the Go and The World is Yours from Sabbatical Entertainment; and Are We There Yet? World Adventures from Sinking Ship Entertainment.

In addition, Bomanbridge placed 4K art titles such as Florence and the Uffizi Gallery on Sky TV as well as VOD platforms SK, KT and LGU+.

Sonia Fleck, the CEO of Bomanbridge Media, remarked: “Bomanbridge is pleased to see the growth of activity in South Korea. We are well-placed with our extensive distribution reach to work with these platforms and we expect the 2018/2019 fiscal year to bring further fruitful projects on content IP. Despite the popularity of their local Korean content, we managed to maintain a curated catalog, which spoke to the Korean audience.”
