Filipino Blinks are in for a treat as Netflix brings them Blackpink: Light Up the Sky, a documentary that serves up the never-before-seen moments the group’s global fandom has been craving for years.
Since their debut in August 2016, Blackpink has become the highest-charting female K-pop group of all time with their innovative music, eye-popping music videos, and internet-breaking fashion concepts.
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, which premiered Oct. 14, 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.
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 humor; 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.
To get you more hyped up, Globe Kmmunity PH is holding a special fan project for Filipino BLINKs to keep the hashtag #PHBLINKsLightUpTheSky and #GlobeKmmunityPH trending on Twitter for the longest time.
Globe Kmmunity PH will be posting a question per day and Blinks just have to answer it with the hashtags to keep the conversation and trend going.
