At one point, the group's producer Teddy Park, a Korean idol-turned-producer/songwriter also speaks about how the group has grown over the years.
BLACKPINK Light Up The Sky is everything that goes behind the scene of making a K-pop act which is pretty standard across the Korean industry. However, what makes the girls different is the emotions, the experience and the journey to the half-way success. Youngest member Lisa still cannot get the hold over their international popularity whereas Jennie is amazed by her fans, who in foreign countries, are singing in Korean. Suh ends the documentary at the much-celebrated Coachella festival in 2019 for the sake of an ending, as the girls still talk about their next project, next album, next 'big thing' in their closing comments. They are keen on expanding the limits of the stardom, despite being the biggest girl group in the K-pop scene at the moment.
Park has been working with Blackpink since the girl group's debut in 2016. Park also worked on Blackpink's latest offering, "The Album," which dropped on Oct. 2. The 42-year-old was a member of hip-hop act 1TYM before becoming an in-house producer at YG Entertainment. While Park has largely stayed away from the limelight after transforming into a producer, he grabbed headlines in 2017 when rumors hinted at a romance between him and Jennie, who is 18 years his junior. "This is the first time we've heard about Teddy and Jennie's dating rumor," YG Entertainment said in a statement. Blackpink's "Light Up the Sky" is available to stream on Netflix starting Wednesday. It will give fans access to never-before-seen footage of the girls from their journey to becoming a highly successful K-pop group.
