Member RiSe never regained consciousness after the deadly crash on the 3rd. After many hours of surgery, the doctors had to suspend operations on account of low blood pressure and brain swelling. Her company announced:
Ladies’ Code’s RiSe has passed away to the heavens at 10:10 AM on the 7th, at 23 years of age. . . . Her parents, who came from Japan, and the label employees stayed with her at the end. We are sorry to give another sad news since the late EunB and we cannot hide our sorrow.
Injured member Sojung is reported to make progress after operations for her facial fractures. Members Ashley and Zuny were well enough to attend EunB’s wake. We wish them continued and speedy recovery, and strength in their shock and grief. The departed members will be missed.
Ladies’ Code’s brief but noteworthy career left a small body of vivacious gems, as well as one notedly haunting ballad. I am sorry they had not come to my attention sooner; for the brief time (little more than a week) when they were on my radar, prior to the disaster, I was smitten with their playful charm. Godspeed RiSe.
