I want to preface that I was not interested in the subject matter of this documentary. I was resistant to watch, but that soon changed. I have seen music documentaries where the artist talks about the pain of fame including the long hours, that in all actuality, does not live up to the excitement people assume it to be. This documentary had an added feature-culture, cross-culture for that matter. The members of the group, all Korean, yet with such a diverse upbringing, share their extensive training in dancing and singing. The demands from their instructors bled onto the demands they put on themselves. Many times in the film, I wished it started from the end and worked itself backwards. I say this because of the inspirational words that were shared from the members and even their producer. I connected with their thoughts, and I can see students doing the same. As I continue to celebrate different cultures in my curriculum in order that we recognize commonality and grow as a people who find value in our differences, I think sharing this film with students will see that yes, things can be very different in other cultures, but can also be very much the same. Knowing this makes us more understanding individuals. With music being an instant gateway to engagement, this documentary highlights the power of music. The energy in music unites us all. With music like K-pop becoming international and mainstreamed and hitting such a young audience that Blackpink does, more and more we are finding a oneness with each other, rather than the differences that have led to discrimination. Music is one part of culture that is connecting us, and this documentary enlightens us on that unity. I feel students will first find a connection to the music, but then, they will find a connection with the situations and challenges these artists face together and individually.
