They’re funky, spunky, and everything in between. South Korean pop is taking over the world, and these dames are making sure they are right at the helm. They are the famous Kpop girl groups.
Though their music has not experienced as much success on the international charts as their male counterparts’, they have become a major influence on global culture, seen in everything from music to skincare, and what we love best of all: fashion—Kpop girls’ streetwear is unrivaled.
On Oct 14, Netflix released the much anticipated documentary BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky. The documentary aimed to cover the beginning of their journey, from the moment they auditioned with YG Entertainment, to their days as a trainee, their official debut in 2016 and explosion in both the Kpop industry but internationally as well. They hoped to showcase not only their incredible rise to fame but all the struggles and hardships that you often don’t see happening behind the scenes. This documentary gives the four girls a voice in expressing their journeys throughout all this and how they came to be who they are today.
