Amazing! Shows great female empowerment! but....

I am blackpink's biggest fan. this has a lot of female empowerment and tells about their lives, and how they worked hard for it,not some pretty princess life. they admited their fears if your a blink (thats how blackpink fans are called) or just kpop in general,then you will love this now on to iffy content...... Sex: they do wear iffy outfits but its very minor,when jisoo was trying on coustumes lisa and jennie said,you have a natrually sexy body Languge: a blink calls them the baddest bitches and jennie says 2 fbombs while singing a song And they talk about how they are the 1st girl group to preform at cochella, wich is a big deal overall great movie! LONG LIVE JISOO (my bias) AND LONG LIKE BLACKPINK!!!!!!! XOXO
