Tragic news: EunB of Ladies' Code killed in car accident
Go Eunbi (known by her stage name "EunB") of the K-pop girl group Ladies' Code was killed on the morning of September 3rd (local time) in a car accident while heading back to Seoul after a group appearance in Daegu. She was 21 years old.
The group's agency Polaris released an official statement following the accident:
"After a schedule in Daegu on September 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. With the rainy road and wheel coming off, the vehicle spun several times, hitting a guardrail. Due to this, Eun Bi unfortunately passed away. The other members, Rise is in critical condition while So Jung is injured and hospitalized, currently receiving treatment. The other members, managers, and stylists, who were in the car, did not receive serious injuries. The members will move from the hospital in Suwon to one in Seoul later today. The location of the wake has not been decided yet. Our staff is also unable to recover from the shock and are in great sorrow right now. We want to apologize too all the fans and everyone who have received much shock, and we ask for everyone to pray for the quick recovery of the members."
Hours later, Polaris released an official statement on the condition of the other members and EunB's funeral:
"Rise's long operation has ended and she's currently under careful observation. The other members are currently hospitalized in Seoul. So Jung underwent an operation for a bone fracture. Ashley and Zuny did not sustain major injuries, but because of the shock and trauma from the accident they are currently undergoing several examinations and treatment."
"EunB's remains are attended to at Korea University Anam Hospital. Her funeral will be held on September 5th."
