"That's what happens every day among our members", said Rosé, the group's main vocalist. "We converse many languages, and I feel that variety represents us". "We are the world, literally!", Jennie said.

The official synopsis for the documentary reads: "Directed by Caroline Suh (Netflix's "Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat"), the documentary goes deep with each of BLACKPINK's four members: Jisoo, the whip-smart unnie ("big sister") of the group with a quirky sense of humour; Jennie, the rapper whose fierce onstage persona contrasts with her soft-spoken nature; Rosé, the dulcet-voiced Australian coming into her own as a singer-songwriter; and Lisa, the dancing queen whose spark plug personality never fails to make her bandmates laugh". "Because we have this really special and strong teamwork, I think a lot of the fans are able to experience that positive energy". They're a lot cooler than I'm, and I actually loved working with them.

Meanwhile, Suh shared that her team spent hundreds of hours going through the girls' old videos and photos to find the flawless ones that could go well with the theme they want to express.

"We shine the most when the four of us are together", she added when asked about when BLACKPINK is at its best.

During the shoot, Suh shared that she was most surprised and impressed by the group's tenacity to achieve their dreams and goals.

"We can just look one another in the eye and know immediately what we need to do for them and what we need to do for the team", she said. "They're also very supportive of each other".
