On Monday (Oct. 5), Netflix dropped a surprise for Blinks: the first trailer for the upcoming Blackpink documentary Blackpink: Light Up The Sky.
Directed by Caroline Suh, the film details the K-pop girl group’s rise to fame — from their trainee days in Seoul all the way to their history-making performance at Coachella in the spring of 2019 — and will feature never-before-seen footage from behind the scenes, as well as individual interviews with each of the girls.
“We grew into something that we didn’t even know was possible,” Rosé says in the trailer of the quartet’s record-breaking domination, while Jennie remarks, “I think what makes K-pop K-pop is the time that we spent as a trainee.”
In the clip, the other girls also look back on their grueling pre-fame days before making the group, with Lisa pointing out that “everything was ‘competition’ at that time” in their lives, and Jisoo questioning whether she wanted to give up because of the demanding trainee process.
The trailer gives fans a look at the group’s road to the Coachella stage as well, as Jennie asks, “Who would have imagined thousands of people singing in Korean?”
Elswhere, the clip features sit-down interviews with producer and songwriter Teddy Park, who’s responsible for crafting the vast majority of Blackpink’s hits, from “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” and “Kill This Love” to five of the eight tracks on their recently-released debut LP, The Album.
Blackpink: Light Up The Sky is scheduled to hit Netflix on Oct. 14. Watch the full trailer below.
