In the wake of yesterday’s fatal car crash, in which Ladies’ Code’s EunB died, two remaining members of the K-pop girl group Rise & Sojung remain in unstable conditions.

RiSe is still not conscious yet, and our company staff are taking shifts watching over her and waiting for her to get better. Her family has also been by her side all night.”
A memorial service for EunB took place at the Ajou University Hospital after her family: mother, father and younger sibling arrived.

"We went to the hospital after being contacted at daybreak," "She entered the hospital in a deceased state. There was no medical malpractice," and, "We heard that she was on her way to her dorms after attending the recording of KBS's 'Open Concert' in Daegu."
