Blackpink’s Documentary ‘Light up the Sky’ Hits Netflix This October
Netflix recently announced they will be releasing Blackpink’s documentary Light Up The Sky on Oct. 14, 2020.
Korean pop groups have been gaining fame in the music industry with top groups such as BTS, Blackpink, and EXO. The first pop group to hit Billboard’s chart was the girl group ‘Wonder Girls’ back in 2009 with their song “Nobody.” Shortly after, other Korean artists have fallen in the steps of Wonder Girls with hitting the Billboard charts. For instance, Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” BTS recent single “Dynamite” and Blackpink’s collaboration song “Ice Cream” with singer Selena Gomez.
Korean pop music has been out for a long time, debuting back in 1992, and has been gradually gaining success around the world. However, gaining fame was not easy for many artists, as it requires many intense training practices and vocal training. As stated by Vox, “K-pop has become a truly global phenomenon thanks to its distinctive blend of addictive melodies, slick choreography, and production values, and an endless parade of attractive South Korean performers who spend years in grueling studio systems learning to sing and dance in synchronized perfection.”
Just recently, Netflix announced Blackpink’s documentary BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky, which is set to be released on October 14, 2020.
The media service platform shared there will be rare scenes of the girl’s debut days and the hardship they have gone through to become the top girl group. Netflix’s vice president Adam Del Deo shared, “The K-pop phenomenon has been sweeping the globe, and BLACKPINK has arguably become the most recognizable and most popular girl group in the world. Director Caroline Suh’s trusted relationship with Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, 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 grueling preparation each member puts into every hit song, history-making performance, and sold-out arena tour. We’re thrilled to bring their story to their fans worldwide.”
Blackpink was also happy to share the excitement of Light Up The Sky with their fandom ‘Blinks’ as they stated, “We can’t wait to share our personal stories with Blinks all over the world through Netflix! We hope this film will bring joy and light to the viewers, and they will enjoy seeing our journey together on screen from the past four years.”
Thank you for making this happen! This will shed a light on the biggest girl group in the world to a broader audience and I’m so happy for the pinks and everyone involved. BLINKS will certainly be tuning in! @BLACKPINK
