Seoul-based Something Special has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with MBN to represent the Korean broadcaster’s formats internationally, and to partner on co-production, local production, and development.

Founded in 1993, MBN commissions reality, talk, and factual shows, as well as music programming. The network also broadcasts Something Special comedy-reality game show format Battle In the Box and imports international formats, such as Mystery Duets, which originally aired on TF1 in France.

Jin Woo Hwang, Something Special’s president & executive producer, said: “As Something Special enters its fifth year in business, we are pleased to announce this landmark deal with MBN which will take us into our next company phase by increasing format development, production, and licensing projects. We appreciate the confidence that MBN has shown in Something Special and look forward to a strong collaboration.”

MBN added: “Our goal is to showcase the excellence of MBN content in the global market through this collaboration. Our innovative and eye-catching projects have been widely appreciated, and we are thrilled to promote them worldwide.”
