REPORT: “Baby Shark” Attributes To Korean Family’s $125 Million Fortune

“Baby Shark” is one of the most viral songs of all time, racking up nearly 4 billion plays on YouTube since 2016 and making the family who posted it millions in the process.


According to a new report from Bloomberg, “Baby Shark,” released by children’s educational brand Pinkfong, has largely attributed to one Korean family’s net worth of approximately $125 million.

Kim Min-seok and the Kim family collectively own own 63% of Samsung Publishing and 21% of SmartStudy. Plus, Kim own a direct 23% stake in the startup which broke “Baby Shark” into the mainstream.

The infectious singalong charted in several countries including the US and the UK, was remixed in epic fashion by Jauz, and infiltrated nearly every part of modern pop culture. It even played out during the World Series and served as an anthem during the Lebanon protests.

To this day, the song about a family of sharks is still impossible to resist. Listen here.

Zedd & PewDiePie Bond Over Getting Banned In China

Zedd & PewDiePie Bond Over Getting Banned In China

It’s crazy how social media can bring people together — and for the most random reasons. Even the unlikely pairing of Zedd and PewDiePie have bonded over getting banned in China.


The controversial YouTube star known as PewDiePie took to Twitter to vent his frustrations about getting banned in China due to a bizarre copyright situation. That was explained in his new video upload here.

Zedd recently went through a similar situation as well — you know, getting banned from China. All because he liked a South Park tweet.

Zedd soon hit PewDiePie back, welcoming him to the club. PewDiePie also referenced Zedd in this video. We’re not saying they’re best friends or anything — but the internet is weird.

See the exchange below.
