Blackpink fans (or Blinks, as they are known) can look forward to the insanely popular K-pop group’s documentary that will arrive next month on Netflix.
Chronicling the South Korean group’s four-year astounding rise to pop stardom and offering a glimpse into the lives of band members Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa, Blackpink: Light Up The Sky is the streaming giant’s first ever K-pop original documentary.
Directed by Caroline Suh (who also produced Netflix documentary Salt Fat Acid Heat), expect to see a more personal side of the girls, catch exclusive interviews and backstage moments, as well as what’s perhaps most exciting of all: never-before-seen footage of the members as trainees under their record label YG Entertainment.
There will also be snippets of their performance at the 2019 Coachella music festival, as well as those of them working on their upcoming album, which is titled, well, The Album.
Netflix’s vice president of documentary features, Adam Del Deo, shared in a press statement, “Director Caroline Suh’s trusted relationship with Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa offers organic and honest moments that give viewers an authentic inside look into the lives of Blackpink, as well as the dedication and gruelling preparation each member puts into every hit song, history-making performance, and sold-out arena tour.”
The Blackpink members also shared a special message, “We’re excited to share our story with Blinks all around the world. We hope this film brings everyone joy.”
Earlier this year, the girl group had already released two successful singles from the album: How You Like That and Ice Cream, a collaboration with Selena Gomez.
Blackpink: Light Up the Sky is set to premiere on Oct 14, right after after The Album is released on Oct 2.
