What the filmmaker said
According to filmmaker Caroline Suh, she hopes that the film humanizes the Blackpink members. She hopes that they are able to show a more three-dimensional side of K-pop idols and stars instead of one dimensional. Moreover, she also said that she hopes that people are empathetic toward them and give support to them.
As the members trusted Suh, they start to share their experiences, including hardships and difficulties they encountered during trainee times.
More and more youngsters are joining training programmes consisting of hours of daily voice training, dance lessons and schoolwork, alongside weekly auditions. Teenagers nowadays need to realize that it is not always successful to make it out in the world of K-pop.
YG Entertainment, the agency company which formed Blackpink, did not set any regulations for the film crew, Suh said.
