Bomanbridge Media acquires multiple Korean dramas from KBS and SBS
MUMBAI: Singapore-based production/distribution agency Bomanbridge Media has announced the acquisition of several Korean dramas to bring to Mongolia, where earlier this year they opened a satellite office in Ulaanbaatar.
Deals were closed with Korean broadcasters, including KBS and SBS, for dramas like ‘The Producers’, ‘Unkind Ladies’, ‘The Mask’ and ‘The Gang Doctor’, among others.
Bomanbridge Media CEO Sonia Fleck said, “Bomanbridge is strategically moving into developing Asian countries and we strongly believe in the growth of the Mongolian television landscape. Korean broadcasters such as KBS and SBS are well recognized brands, and increasingly around the globe, as top Korean producers of drama. As Mongolians have an increasing appetite for well-produced content, we are happy to deliver the best.”
KBS sold the Mongolian rights to ‘The Producers’, featuring global star Soo Hyun Kim with IU and Gong Yo Jin in a behind-the-scenes look at a variety show; ‘Unkind Ladies’, a drama about four women of three generations trying to live their lives together; ‘The Man in the Mask’, a modern Korean version of The Legend of Zorro; and ‘Who Are You – School 2015’, a realistic teen drama depicting the lives and emotions of 18-year-old students, their families, friends and teachers.
Four dramas were sold by SBS, namely ‘Heard It Through the Grapevine’ (a black comedy drama depicting a prestigious family whose lives are shaken because of a rumour about their teenage son), ‘A Girl Who Can See Smell’ (based on a popular Korean web comic about a girl who has amnesia but can now see smells), ‘The Mask’ (a melodrama about a woman from a hard life who assumes the identity of a wealthy woman) and ‘The Gang Doctor’ (starring two of Korea’s top stars, Won Joo and Tae Hee Kim).
