Korean wave or Hallyu has taken the world by storm, with Korean dramas, movies and music slowly becoming global sensations in the last few decades, raising the bar for the entertainment industry and setting the tone for pop culture in the 2020s and beyond. One of the things that has helped spread this phenomena so extensively is South Korean popular music or K-pop, with K-pop groups leading the way in gaining widespread critical acclaim and adoration from fans.
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. BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky serves up the never-before-seen moments that BLINKs have been craving for years.
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.
