Something Special Partners with MY Entertainment


Jin Woo Hwang and InSoon Kim’s Something Special has entered an unscripted co-development partnership with Michael Yudin’s MY Entertainment Productions.

The deal sees the companies initially co-developing three new unscripted formats: Smashed Hits, Inseparables and The Quizzy Horror Show for major U.S. networks and streaming platforms, as well as the international marketplace.

Smashed Hits sees contestants compete to identify popular songs that have been mixed together and creatively reinvented so that they are barely recognizable. Inseparables tests couples’ patience and the strength of their relationship as they attempt to overcome the issues presented by living in smaller and smaller quarters. In The Quizzy Horror Show, contestants must try not to blink their eyes during scary moments so they can report what they saw.

Woo Hwang and Kim said: “We are thrilled to bring Something Special together with MY Entertainment. Our talented Korean producers—Enseol Mo, Sehwa Kim, and Jiyoon Kim—look forward to collaborating with Michael and his extraordinary team at MY Entertainment. They have long been a prominent industry player with their eyes on the Korean market, and it is the perfect time for us to finally walk down the aisle, especially when Korean creativity is being recognized more than ever.”

Yudin commented: “We’re equally excited to begin working with Jin Woo and InSoon and Something Special’s great team of highly creative producers while leveraging our personal industry relationships in the U.S. and across the globe to find homes for these shows. Coming on the heels of our successful international market collaboration with Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS) and MTV for the ultimate reality competition show, The Power, our new partnership with Something Special marks another benchmark for MY Entertainment’s strategy of expanding its activities with leaders in the Korean creative production community.”
