South Korea-based media company Pinkfong, famous for YouTube blockbuster "Baby Shark," is entering the podcast world with original shows exclusive to Apple Podcasts.
The entertainment studio is behind the Baby Shark brand, which produced a popular song that went viral in 2016. It's making its first step into podcasting with three shows.
As of Tuesday's launch, eight episodes are available in English and Korean on two Apple Podcasts channels. "The Greatest Pinkfong Baby Shark Kids Tale," "My Favorite Pinkfong Baby Shark Musical Story," and "Exclusive Pinkfong Baby Shark Book Adventure" are three podcasts available on the English-speaking channel.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, five podcasts are available on the channel in Korean. The studio releases new episodes every Tuesday at 3:00 pm Pacific, 6:00 pm Eastern time.
Early childhood education experts created the shows and episodes that involve subjects such as dinosaurs and constellations. The channel on Apple Podcasts costs $2.99 per month or $19.99 yearly, and listeners get seven days free.
Pinkfong is also working on Baby Shark content with other companies. A second Baby Shark animation series season is currently airing on Paramount.
Later this year, a Nickelodeon and Pinkfong movie starring Kimiko Glenn, Cardi B, Offset, Chloe Fineman, Ego Nwodim, Ashley Tisdale, Aparna Nancherla, and Lance Bass is also scheduled to be released.
