And…yep, they are the first South Korean K-Pop group to do it!
Cartoon Network’s show, We Bare Bears is the first ever American-cartoon show to collaborate with the South Korean K-Pop act. They’ve posted a teaser video of the upcoming episode with Ice Bear and Panda plotting some schemes to meet Monsta X.
The episode is titled as ‘Panda’s Birthday!’ since Panda is a huge fan of Monsta X and thanks to Grizz and Ice Bear, he gets one of the best birthday gifts ever…which is meeting his favorite group, Monsta X.
