Blackpink is the highest-charting female Korean act on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 13 with their 2020 single Ice Cream, and on the Billboard 200, peaking at number two with The Album.
The official synopsis for the documentary reads: “Directed by Caroline Suh (Netflix’s “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat”), the documentary goes deep with each of BLACKPINK’s four members: Jisoo, the whip-smart unnie (“big sister”) of the group with a quirky sense of humour; Jennie, the rapper whose fierce onstage persona contrasts with her soft-spoken nature; Rosé, the dulcet-voiced Australian coming into her own as a singer-songwriter; and Lisa, the dancing queen whose spark plug personality never fails to make her bandmates laugh.
“As BLACKPINK continues reaching new heights in their career — from headlining sold-out world tours to becoming the first female Korean group to perform at Coachella — each member reflects on the ups and downs of fame and the long, often challenging journey that brought them to worldwide success.
“BLACKPINK: LIGHT UP THE SKY reveals the relatable, unfiltered sides of the foursome, who continue to be a leading force in expanding K-pop’s popularity, proving that music knows no borders or language barriers.”
Fans have taken to Twitter to share their excitement for the new documentary.
One fan tweeted: “I haven’t listened to Blackpink in a while but it is so cool to have a doco coming up about them, I might just have to catch up on their newer music before I watch it!
“I’m only a casual listener but this is so exciting, I can’t imagine how fans must feel right now!”
A second fan said: “I’m so excited to see them behind all the success.
A third fan added: “We’re so [email protected] excited! I wish it’s Oct 14 today!”
