Every eye in K-Pop reporting is looking for updates on the Ladies Code car crash that killed member EunB, but precious little hard information has been available today.
This is quite typical when a full police investigation is underway; information will be slow until the official report on the accident is released. As usual, we don’t want to share misinformation with our readers so we are careful to verify what we hear before we pass it along to you.
One of the most pressing questions on everyone’s mind right now is over RiSe‘s condition. She is still in the neurological intensive care unit and is unable to be moved. A hospital official spoke to Korea Daily and addressed her condition: ““Right now the biggest concern is whether she will be able to survive or not. She has yet to regain consciousness. She is still in neurosurgical intensive care to address the significant injuries to the head.” The official was asked about her long-term prognosis and if there was a risk of neurological problems when she does wake up, they responded with, “Miss Kwon remains in critical condition. The most immediate issue is her survival. That they interrupted her surgery shows how serious her condition is.” Aside from these statements, nothing else has been revealed today about RiSe’s condition. In heartbreaking commentary, EunB‘s mother said, “Rise will be fine. Do not worry about it. EunB will protect Rise.” Fans have expressed their fervent desire for this to be true as they feel that they, and her family would be unable to withstand any other outcome.
Sojung was scheduled for additional surgery scheduled for sometime in the afternoon on the 5th, KST, reports are that the surgery will be for facial reconstruction. Reportedly, she regained consciousness today as well, though she has not been told of EunB’s death. There is legitimate concern that telling her would compromise her physical and emotional well-being, making her own surgeries much more riskier. It has been reported that when she woke up, she apologized for not being able to complete their schedule. It has also recently been revealed that Sojung’s status has been downgraded from critical. There has been no further information released on her condition or the outcome of her surgery.
Ashley and Zuni were told about EunB’s death and attended her wake. Both girls spoke but the content has not been divulged. There are heartbreakingly emotional photos being released of the funeral. Normally we would share them with you, but they are so painful to look at, we decided to give you the option to see them by clicking here. This second link is even sadder as it shows EunB’s coffin being moved for her final journey. The two relatively uninjured members can be seen openly grieving, having to be supported by others. One can only imagine how their hearts are breaking right now. EunB will be cremated and laid to rest in Skycastle Memorial Park in Bundang.
Polaris Entertainment addressed the ugly internet rumor about their vehicle maintenance being at least partly to blame in this tragedy. They explained that the van was a rental they acquired after their company vehicle needed maintenance.
As I said, not much has been released officially since our last article. This entire tragedy has effected each and every K-Pop fan, hurting each of us as we watch our idols, who we feel as though we know like family and cherish the same way, grieve this loss. Please remember to be respectful and pass on only love and messages of healing in this time of great sadness in our community. Be sure you pass them along not just to the surviving members of Ladies Code, but also to your own favorites as well, this tragedy has touched so many.
