Kang Daniel will be collaborating on a global project
Kang Daniel will be collaborating on a global project with the popular animation show “SpongeBob SquarePants”! Are you expected to discover?
On June 23, Kang Daniel’s agency KONNECT Entertainment announced that they will be collaborating with Paramount Global to produce a character for Kang Daniel as well as various collaboration merchandise. The newly revealed character reflects Kang Daniel’s appearance and style.
A representative of Paramount Global shared, “I’m really happy to announce the collaboration between SpongeBob and Kang Daniel. Like SpongeBob, Kang Daniel is popular all over the world and receives much love, so I am sure that this collaboration will be greatly popular.”
Recently, Kang Daniel made his U.S. television debut on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” with a performance of “Parade” from his first full-length album “The Story.” He also collaborated with IVE’s An Yu Jin and Olympic gold medalist Kim Yuna for the music video for “Move Like This,” a song for the 2022 Gatorade Campaign.
Kang Daniel (Korean: 강다니엘; commonly stylized as KANGDANIEL; born Kang Eui-geon [강의건]; December 10, 1996) is a South Korean singer-songwriter, actor, and entrepreneur that rose to fame in early 2017 as the first-place winner of the second season of reality competition series Produce 101. He is a former member of the show’s resulting boy group Wanna One and is currently active as a solo artist.
Following the end of Wanna One’s activities as a group, Kang took a six-month hiatus from the entertainment industry and took over management of his career. In mid-2019, he released his solo debut extended play (EP), Color on Me, which was a commercial success that topped South Korea’s Gaon Album Chart. His subsequent works from his color series titled Cyan (2020) and Magenta (2020) also topped the Gaon Album Chart with the former’s title track earning Kang his first top ten single in Korea. Furthering his success as a solo artist, Kang earned his first top five single in Korea as well as his first solo appearance on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart through the single “Paranoia”. He then released the third and final chapter of his “color trilogy”, Yellow (2021), which topped the Gaon Album Chart and contained his first domestic number one single titled “Antidote”.
Alongside his music career, Kang also appeared as the host of Mnet’s Street Woman Fighter (2021) as well as the spin-off show Street Dance Girls Fighter (2021) and made his acting debut through the Disney+ Star original series, Rookie Cops (2022). His other ventures include establishing an independent entertainment company named Konnect Entertainment to manage his own career that has since expanded to manage other artists in addition to himself.
