For the first time in five years, Ladies’ Code spoke about the tragic car accident which led to the passing of their members EunB and RiSe.
On September 3, 2014, Ladies’ Code was involved in a serious car accident when they were on their way back to Seoul after an event. EunB passed away that day while RiSe passed away four days later on September 7. Sojung was seriously injured in the accident.
For the November 11 episode of Channel A’s “Eye Contact,” members Ashley and Zuny invited Sojung to the show to talk about the accident and how it’s affected her birthday, which was on the same day as the accident. Ashley talked about how hard it is for Sojung, who should be able to have a happy day like anyone else on their birthday, and she shared her hope that Sojung will be able to celebrate with her loved ones without a heavy heart.
In addition, Ashley explained that while they always talk amongst themselves about EunB and RiSe, they haven’t ever spoken about what happened on the day of the accident.
Sojung said in a private interview, “After we did a broadcast that day, we went somewhere pretty far away to do an event.” She shared that it was raining a lot on the way back, and they’d all been tired. They went to a rest stop, and when she came back to their van from the restroom, her members surprised her with a cake made of choco pies (snack cakes) with birthday candles. They sang to her and apologized because it was all they could do for her birthday.
“I told them it was okay because we were busy, and then I got in and we drove off,” she said. “We were so tired, so I fell asleep on the way. To be honest, that’s my last memory of that. I think I was probably taken to the hospital then.”
