What is the documentary all about?

The documentary on BlackPink is titled BlackPink: Light up the Sky. It is set to release on October 14. The documentary will follow their first full length studio-album, The Album which was released on October 2nd. The album featured two singles How You Like That and Ice Cream along with some more new tracks such as Love to Hate Me and the title track Lovesick Girls. The documentary will be directed by Caroline Suh who is known for Netflix’s Salt Fat Acid Heat. It will be produced by Radical Media, with Jon Kamen, David Sirulnick and Zara Duffy as executive producers and Cara Mones as the producer.

Netflix had hinted about such a documentary back in February 2020 which had created a lot of excitement amongst Blinks, the group’s fandom. Netflix had not disclosed any details about it back then. BlackPink’s documentary will be placed amongst documentaries on other popular figures in the music industry such as Beyonce, Taylor Swift, and Lady Gaga. Netflix also announced that the member’s photos will also become profile icons on Netflix! With the release of the documentary, BlackPink will finally be in your area (and Netflix Watchlist)!

 

 

The documentary will be released on the Indian platform as well! The trailer looks promising! Blinks, keep your tissues ready! Till the documentary arrives, let’s watch the trailer and the exclusive photos from the documentary.
