Friendship is Magic is an American cartoon.
For almost 30 years, absolutely nothing My Little Pony related, including the toys, ever officially made its way to South Korea, and anything related to this franchise appearing there within that time period were either bootlegs or rip-off versions. This included the first three generations of the franchise.
Following the success of the hit TV series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic in 2011, the ban on all My Little Pony products in South Korea was almost entirely lifted. The franchise first reached South Korea in April 2014, with the first airing of the first episode of the show, Friendship is Magic, part 1, and the first toys were released there a few months later. The show only aired on cable (not terrestrial) television, which also currently allows broadcasts of Japanese music and television dramas.
