Earlier this morning, it was reported that Ladies Code (레이디스 코드), a South Korean idol girl group formed by Polaris Entertainment in 2013, has been involved in a car accident.
The group, consisting of leader Ashley and members RiSe, Sojung, Zuny, and EunB were in a vehicle traveling near Youngdong highway towards Incheon in Seoul when the crash happened. Initial investigation suggest that the said vehicle, a van, may have slipped and ran into a protective wall due to the rainy roads. The van was carrying a total of 8 people (including the driver) at that time.
As a result of the accident, 21-year-old Go EunB passed away. She was taken to the St. Vincent’s Hospital in Suwon but she did not make it. At time of writing, 2 of the 4 other members who were in the car, Sojung and RiSe, suffered severe injuries. The other 2 members, Ashley and Zuny, as well as 2 stylists, sustained minor injuries and are currently undergoing treatment at a hospital.
As more news coverage is now surfacing in relation to this tragic accident, it has been revealed that two members, Sojung and RiSe, are currently in critical condition while the remaining two members and two stylists have sustained minor injuries.
Polaris Entertainment has since released a statement which read:
Near Suwon around 1:30 AM, the car that Ladies’ Code had been riding in after finishing up their schedule in Daegu experienced a problem where the back wheel came off. With the back wheel coming off on the rainy road, the car ended up spinning several times before hitting the guard rail. Due to this, EunB tragically passed away.
Currently, RiSe is in critical condition and Sojung is receiving treatment for her injuries. The other members and the manager and stylist have no big injuries… The members will be transferred from Suwon to a hospital in Seoul, and the location for the wake [for EunB] has not yet been decided on.
Our company employees are also currently in great shock and are experiencing sadness that cannot be expressed in words. We offer our apology to the fans and all those who have also been greatly shocked, and we hope that many can pray for the speedy recovery of the members.
Our thoughts and prayers are with EunB’s family, friends, fans, and loved ones.
Police are still investigating the case.
More to come as and when we get more news.
