After the release BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky on Netflix, Blinks are now left with important lessons and insights that made them love the famous girl group even more. The documentary is only an hour and nineteen minutes long but it gave fans a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes. BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky is the group’s story from their trainee days to their present success, but beyond that, it shows their struggles to make it to the top and what it feels like to achieve their dreams. Here are some lessons we picked up while watching the doc.
Even our biggest idols had ordinary childhoods

Before they became BLACKPINK Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa were ordinary girls with big dreams. Although they each came from different countries, they shared the same goal: to be able to share their talents with the world. Each of them had to be apart from their families and even drop out of school.
Don’t listen to the haters

Can you believe that people used to think that Jisoo was ugly??!! Goes to show that you shouldn’t listen to the haters and just keep on being your fabulous self.

Blinks have been clamoring for Rosé’s solo debut for ages, and we finally got a glimpse into her recording process in the documentary. Unlike many K-pop stars, Rosé is actually involved in the songwriting process, and she opened up about staying up all night just to compose her songs. We even got a bit of a preview for her possible new song. So better stay tuned for that!

Before they were able to sell millions of albums and perform at sold-out shows, they were just young girls with dreams of making it big. The documentary was able to show different clips and pictures of BLACKPINK when they were kids. Each member also shared how they were like growing up and how it felt like to train/ move to Korea at such a young age.
Hard work and determination are essential

There are times when they felt like giving up. Being an idol isn’t easy. It takes a mental, emotional, and physical toll on the girls. Their determination and bond are what keeps them going, as well as knowing that their fans love and treasure them.
Make the most of the present

This powerful quote from Lisa hit us right in the feels. Let’s not kid ourselves — the glory days of BlackPink won’t last forever. That’s just not how things work. That’s why we should enjoy our peaks as much as we can so we can look back on these times with fondness and no regrets.
It’s ok to have high standards
Teddy: And I know the fans are mad. Like, “we want more and more.” We do have a lot in here, but WE’RE VERY PARTICULAR WITH WHAT WE PUT OUT.
YES. QUALITY OVER QUANTITY. 🔥#BLACKPINKinYourNetflix #LightUpTheSky #BLACKPINK @BLACKPINK pic.twitter.com/FSYWyOCaxf

Blackpink took four years to release an album, but that was intentional. Producer Teddy Park said that they’ve recorded a lot of songs, but they’re particular with what they release, which is why we have nothing but bangers from the girls.
Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you
These near to end lines sound funny but sad at the same time🥺❣ Blinks will be there after your career and even when you already have your own family❤ #BLACKPINKinYourNetflix #LightUpTheSky pic.twitter.com/eLLP4SqZsu

During the last part of the documentary, the girls got to talk about their future plans. How they see themselves twenty years from now. They opened up about performing when their 40 years old! It’s pretty clear that BLACKPINK will be together for a very long time.
