How and where to buy Kang Daniel X Spongebob merch, fans say ‘successful fanboy’
Even new fans of Kang Daniel know that the K-pop idol is a huge Spongebob fan from randomly singing the theme song to posting memes on social media. He also does a pretty mean imitation of the characters and cites Patrick as his favorite character. With being such a huge fanboy of the cartoon it would only make sense that he be roped in for Spongebob’s next official merch line. That’s right. Kang Daniel will be collaborating with the cartoon and launching an exclusive collection.
On June 23, it was announced that Kang Daniel had become the first K-pop idol to be part of an IP license collaboration with Spongebob’s production Paramount. He will turn into a cartoon character himself and hang out with Spongebob and the rest of the characters in Bikini Bottom. There are 12 exciting items and goodies in the collection from phone covers and totes to plushies and stickers. Well, here’s all about the merch and how you can go about buying it.

Where to buy
You can order and buy the merch online at Konnect Ent’s shop.
Some of the merch items that were teased include badges, stickers, masking tape, umbrella, tote, pouch, pen, diary, phone cover and plushy. The designs also include Kang Daniel drawn by artist Mina Kwon in the animation style of Spongebob with his trademark eye smile and eye mole.
This is not the first time that Spongebob has dabbled in K-pop. The beloved cartoon character had roped in Monsta X to sing the OST with Snoop Dogg for its film ‘Spongebob Movie: Sponge On The Run’. Spongebob is also a much-loved show in South Korea as K-pop idols often imitate its cartoon characters like Ateez’s Yunho, ONEUS’ Keonhee, Kep1er’s Bahiyyih, E’LAST, Astro’s Moonbin and more.
