Meta Media to Distribute ‘Bread Barbershop’ in Europe

New Korean animated kid’s series already reaching millions on YouTube and TikTok.

LONDON Following the YouTube and Tik Tok success of the new Korean animation series Bread Barbershop, Meta Media Entertainment has been appointed distributor for European territories. The comedy series, for kids ages 6-10, is produced by Monster Studio and debuted in Korea in 2019 on KBS and Tooniverse.

In its first year, the show has generated over 300,000 YouTube subscribers and 95m views. On TikTok, it has garnered almost 1 million followers. Several licensing deals are now in place for toys, games, books, food and other products.

Bread Barbershop takes place in a world where all the characters are different kinds of food and our hero is a slice of bread who is a master cake decorator. All the cupcakes in town come to his barbershop to have their decorations styled. Using his skill and ingenuity, his makeovers transform the lives of his customers, who come to him with all the imaginable problems a cupcake might have, as well as a few that are unimaginable.

“We love Bread Barbershop,” commented Meta Media founder, Sara Cooper. “It’s fresh, original and very funny, with great characters and storylines. I am sure it will have great appeal for kids everywhere.”
