K-Pop singer EunB, 22, passed away after her girl group, Ladies' Code, were involved in a car accident early in the morning on Sept. 3.
The crash also left her band mate Rise in critical condition and member SoJung with serious injuries, while other passengers—including members Ashley and Zuny and the group’s managers and stylists—did not suffer serious injuries.
The group’s label, Polaris Entertainment, released a statement to Yahoo! Philippines about the tragedy that took place while en route to Seoul.
“After a schedule in Daegu on Sept. 2, LADIES’ CODE was headed back to Seoul. Around 1:30 AM in Suwon, an issue occurred with the car’s back wheel coming off,” the statement read.
“With the rainy road and wheel coming off, the vehicle spun several times, hitting a guardrail.
“Due to this, EunB unfortunately passed away…. Our staff is also unable to recover from the shock and are in great sorrow right now. We want to apologize to all the fans and everyone who have received much shock, and we ask for everyone to pray for the quick recovery of the members. [sic]”
Our thoughts are with EunB’s family and band mates at this difficult time.
