An underrated documentary that grounds idols to a relate-able world.
24 March 2019 | by keonalaurenSee all my reviews

The simplicity of the film style underlined the pure humanness of the girls. I loved how their emotions and personalities were respected and framed in an non-judgmental, almost admiring way. Each girl has been through and done so much. They are all admirable in character. I don't think I've ever seen Asian idols in such a raw, up-close state. Each girl is refreshingly thoughtful, sincere, mature, good-humored, and intelligent. Oftentimes in the entertainment industry, idol groups are surrounded by glitz and glam, cutesy choreographed personalities, and this is such a nice grounded contrast. My favorite aspect is how the director leads through their experiences chronologically and shows how each girl has matured as people. This documentary isn't a thorough dissection of the entertainment industry(although it sheds a dark light), nor is it really propaganda for it. It is about individuals with similar hopes and dreams and their respective experiences. This is a pure-hearted opportunity to learn about people whether you are a fan or not.
