Girl Group Ladies’ Code member RiSe (Kwon RiSe, age 23) left this world. Other members wailed as her coffin was borne out.
At 9:30 a.m. on September 9, RiSe’s coffin was ceremoniously borne out of the funeral hall in Korea University’s Anam Hospital in Anam-dong, Seongbuk-gu, Seoul. Her fellow members Ashley and Zuny, who were also injured from the car crash that RiSe passed away from, faced the tragedy in the hall. Sojung, who could not attend the ceremony for EunB, was also present.
At 9 a.m. on the same day, before the ceremony, a Christian service was carried out for the family of the deceased in room 301 of the funeral home. The service was not made public to honor the family’s wishes.
The bearing out ceremony was exectued a little later than planned, at 9:38 a.m., amidst the wails of family members and acquaintances. Ashley and Zuny, who were in the same accident, were still suffering from fractures, but were present for the deceased. Sojung appeared in a wheelchair and wearing a mask and cap. The members who had briefly been separated after the accident on September 3rd had reunited grieving.
RiSe’s fellow associates of the entertainment industry also came to see her part. Lee Taekwon and Baek Chungkang, whom she had met at MBC’s “The Great Birth,” and actor Yang Donggeun from her agency attended.
The body of the deceased will be cremated at the Seoul Memorial Park in Wonji-dong, Seoul; the remains will be taken to Japan to lay in state.
The deceased had finished her schedule on September 3rd and was in a car with other members when it slid in the rain and hit a guardrail on Youngdong Highway around Incheon. EunB lost consciousness and was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Suwon, Gyeonggi, but passed away. RiSe, who had a big injury in the head, received treatments in Ajou Hospital, but remained unconscious for a continued period of time. Sojung had also received a big injury to the face. In contrast, other members Ashley and Zuny, the driver, and the stylist have received relatively minor injuries.
