According to an official statement by the South Korean label Polaris Entertainment, members of the K-pop group Ladies’ Code were involved in a serious car accident early this morning that killed singer EunB and left her bandmates Rise and SoJung hospitalized. EunB was just 21 years old.
Here is the latest update, via allkpop:
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.
Billboard named Ladies’ Code one of its five K-Pop acts to watch earlier this year. Their biggest hit to date, “So Wonderful,” is available below along with their new single “Kiss Kiss” and “I’m Fine Thank You,” which has reportedly topped several overseas charts since the accident…
