This morning at University Anam Hospital in Seongbukgu in Seoul September 9, Ladies Code’s Rise’s funeral took place.
Rise was second member to lose her life after the girl group was involved in a road accident on September 3. EunB died en route to the hospital immediately after the incident.
Following the funeral, RiSe will be laid to rest in Japan with close family and friends, where she grew up as a fourth generation Korean Japanese.
Many of Rise’s friends in the industry came out to pay their respects, including: Super Junior’s Donghae, Ryeowook, Leeteuk, Eunhyuk and Kyuhyun, TVXQ’s Changmin, SHINee’s Minho, K.Will, Yoo Jaesuk, Kangnam, KARA’s Gyuri, Bestie, B1A4, Youngji, Boys Republic, ZE:A’s Hwang Kwanghee, Moon Junyoung, and more.
Polaris Entertainment representatives revealed, “RiSe’s mother said RiSe looked best in a Korean traditional Hanbok and wanted to use that as the portrait picture.”
The three Ladies’ Code members Ashley, Zuny, and Sojung were also present to pay their respects to their much loved friend. Sojung was unable to attend EunB’s funeral as she was scheduled for surgery, but she made her way out in a wheelchair for Rise, despite still being in recovery.
It has been a tragic unfolding of events that has left the world in shock and sadness. If you need help or just someone to talk to, please call Lifeline Australia.
