Bomanbridge Media has scored new deals in South Korea. Notably, the Singapore-based content distributor and production agency has sold two nature documentaries and a lifestyle series to KBS and JEI TV.

KBS took the documentary Atlantic: Fire in the Ocean, which explores a vast chain of mountains formed by underwater volcanoes. Viewers will experience the natural history of a set of remote Atlantic islands, from Iceland in the north to those fringing Antarctica in the south.

JEI TV acquired The Wonder of Dogs, a show that celebrates dog in all its forms — from ancient predator to household pet. JEI TV also took lifestyle series Pure Design that follows host and designer Samantha Pynn as she transforms everyday rooms into sustainable living spaces.

“International content sales into Korea has greatly reduced over the last few years due to the phenomenal popularity of local Korean content,” said Sonia Fleck, CEO of Bomanbridge Media in a statement. “Despite that, Bomanbridge has maintained a successful stream of sales in Korea due to our curated market relevant approach”
