Remembering EunB and RiSe - 5 Year Anniversay of Two Ladies Code Members Passing Away

On September 3rd, 2014 - the car transporting the group Ladies Code was involved in a brutal crash that affected the whole group and took the lives of two beautiful young women. EunB was declared dead on arrival and RiSe was taken to the hospital in critical condition. On September 7th, 2014 it was announced that RiSe had passed away. Since this week it'll be 5 years since we lost these two amazing girls, and I wanted to make a little celebratory post for them as I really miss them :(

Under the cut I included fancams and their last performance together. It's great quality and it highlights well how both girls delivered on stage. It's even sadder knowing hours after this performance would be the awful crash.

Please share some of your favorite memories of the girls!

Truly one of the most shocking events in Kpop for me. I guess because I was actually involved with their activities and it was so terrible to follow the news. Especially since nothing has changed since the accident..

wow, it's really been that long

RiSe was my first true bias and this whole thing was just unbearably sad. I remember that last video of the 5 of them closing out 'Kiss Kiss' and talking how they were finishing out their first full album & were choosing the title track so they could shoot the video and get things going. And OFC the Galaxy promos and how emotional that was for everyone

Frankly when it comes to LC what I care primarily about is their individual happiness over success. I just want them to get what they want and to feel personally fulfilled as much as they can be. Polaris' CEO is trash over that Clara thing the company truly handled this in what I can only call the best way possible and I'm glad the girls have each other always.

5 years huh...

I really was heartbroken that day. I didn’t follow LC that much but I was just so sad. I thought about eunb and rise for a long time after that. Hearing about two young women passing away that were around my age just made me feel so empty and sad.

I hope wherever their souls have gone that they have found peace, and that I hope everyone who was affected by their passing is able to find some peace and comfort today❤️

Wow it’s already been 5 years...

This was so sad. They were way too young. And to think it was bc their manager was speeding.

The really sad thing is, I still see so many videos nowadays of idols riding in cars with no seatbelts. You would think after that they would start wearing them but I guess not.

I've seen Ashley not wear a seatbelt in some of her vlogs and I just don't understand it especially since she lived in the US for so long.

jesus, it's been so long. i remember when this happened. i was just starting to get into kpop but i followed the whole situation and was hoping desperately for rise to pull through. it was so sad when she passed away.
i downloaded all their music after that and i've followed them since. i hope the members are feeling ok right now. it has to be a traumatic time of year for them.

has it really been 5 years? wow.
i still remember the post we had here. one of the most shocking events that ever happened in kpop... i was hoping that after their accident things would change in korea, but 5 years later and managers still drive way too fast bc of hectic schedules.

five years, wow. it's still so frustrating that there was such a non-reaction to this awful, preventable tragedy.

i'm sad that 'i'm fine thank you' (their first two releases really) isn't even on spotify or itunes :[

Wow i can’t believe it’s been five years already. It doesn’t feel like it. I still remember how shocked we all were and how we waited and waited for an update of rise.

i can't believe how fast 5 years has gone by. i'll never forget where i was the night it happened and how in shock i was for quite some time following their passing. i miss them so much :(

echoing what others said and wishing this really had a stronger impact on driving safety for managers/idol groups but doesn't seem like much has changed...

thanks for this post op<3

ugh i can't believe it's been that long already. this post is making me cry. :(

this is still a shock to me because with the amount of accidents that happen with idols, this one actually resulted in not just one but two deaths. and still, people continue to drive recklessly. it doesn't feel like it's been 5 years but wow, time really flies. i've really been loving the music that LC has been releasing after everything but it's always jarring to see groups perform when they're missing members T_T i just hope that the girls are in a better place now >.

thanks so much for posting, op. it's so important to remember <3

I really loved RiSe's smile... I miss them a lot.

RiSe and EunB were my biases, I miss them a lot.
Maybe not directly related to them but when Omona had Secret Valentine Card, I got an anonymous one using a picture from Ladies' Code's So Wonderful :) I think I still have it saved on my computer somewhere. That was really cute!
Also one of my favourite memory was probably when Wonder Girls themselves acknowlegded Ladies' Code as the new retro princess of kpop. They were on such a up-hill path, it felt like they could really get big
What happened is still such a tragedy...
They were both so close, there were so many interactions between them two :(
I'm happy Ladies' Code were given time to heal, Polaris isn't shit but at least they handled this well. I hope they could comeback more often though ; Feedback was cute but I would love to get at least a single album with bsides :( as long as that's what the members want to do of course.

this is late, but I just got into a Ladies' Code marathon and I was wondering if there was a post for the 5 year anniversary. This was honestly one of the most shocking deaths next to Aaliyah and Left Eye passing away.

I wasn't a big follower of them, but one of my memories was their video Pretty Pretty and Hate You. I remember hearing about the accident and watching every single thing that came out after. I'm glad the girls are still making music. I can't imagine being in their position.
