Ryu Sera posts original song called "Medicine Song"

The lyrics so confusing lol
anyways today nobody was home and I bravely moved to the living room
Hope our happiness comes from our hearts
muack !
가사는 자막으로 넣었으니 편할 거예요
행복합시다 라는말
진짜 어려운 것 같아요.
외부 환경이나 다른 사람때문이 아닌
속에서 우러나오는 행복을 느낄수있는
능력자들이 되길
그대도 나도

idk if the song is called medicine song or just medicine (i think it's medicine but w/e)
the message was nice and positive and lord knows we all could use a positive reminder to appreciate life

Sojung Recovering After Successful Surgery, No Changes in RiSe’s Condition!


Ladies’ Code member Sojung is recovering well after a successful surgery for her injuries from the tragic car crash of September 3.

Sojung received surgery on September 5 for the facial fractures she sustained from the accident. A representative from her hospital said reported that she was recovering quickly and said, “The surgery ended well. She is currently in the recovery room.”

Sadly, as Sojung recovers from her accident she will be notified by her family and her agency, Polaris Entertainment, that fellow member EunB passed away during the accident. EunB’s funeral ended on September 5. Ashley and Zuny, who were still recovering from their less severe injuries, were seen at the funeral, mourning for their friend.

Polaris Entertainment also gave an update on RiSe’s condition, telling reporters that she was still unconscious and that there have been no great changes in her condition.

Defining Racism in Korea

“We apologize, but due to Ebola virus we are not accepting Africans at the moment.”

This is what a bar in Itaewon, a popular area for expats and tourists in Seoul, publicly posted in front of its property last month.

The statement triggered thousands of angry comments online, both from expats and locals ― especially after the public learned of reports that the bar admitted a white person from South Africa, while banning almost all dark-skinned individuals, regardless of their nationalities.

The incident is likely to get attention from Mutuma Ruteere, the U.N. special rapporteur on racism. Ruteere is scheduled to visit Seoul later this month to monitor the situation of racial discrimination and xenophobia in Korea and will file a report to the U.N. Human Rights Council next year.

The incident is one of the growing number of racism cases in the country ― Asia’s fourth-biggest economy, a key manufacturing powerhouse in the region, as well as the producer of hallyu.

While the nation’s immigrant population continues to rise, Korean racism ― both structural and internalized ― is becoming a growing concern to the international community.
