The quarantine documentary we’ve all been waiting for
Netflix continues to bless us with documentaries that showcase curated behind-the-scenes clips of our favorite stars including Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga. Today, the streaming platform is finally releasing the documentary of the highest-charting Korean girl group of all time. BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky unveils Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa as we’ve never seen them before.
The documentary will unveil the group’s emotional journey to stardom and put emphasis on the girls as individuals in a more intimate setting. Since their debut in 2016, the Korean quartet successfully reached multiple milestones, including being the first K-pop group to ever perform at Coachella.
Their worldwide success has opened the doors for other aspiring K-pop artists all over. That said, being the biggest K-pop girl band to break the stigma of language barriers isn’t all glitter and gloss. The girls overcame trials and tribulations to reach their level of success and we get full access to it on BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky.
The film will provide an unfiltered version of the hard work the girls have put in to form their iconic group. An emotional roller coaster ride, the best bits are of their quirky personalities and inside jokes.
It’s about time Netflix released new K-pop content for fans yearning for more. This year’s streak of virtual concerts hasn't quite filled the void, but recorded performances are still something.
Light Up the Sky isn’t just a documentary, but a heartwarming letter to inspire those determined to chase their dreams. Grab a box of tissues for this one! It’s a tearjerker for fans who have followed them since day one.
BLINKS, read the full review on Wonder tomorrow! Stream BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky on Netflix.
