On August 16, 2015, nearly a year after a fatal car accident that occurred on September 3 of last year, fans are commemorating the late Ladies’ Code member Kwon RiSe, who would have turned 24 today (born August 16, 1991).
With heavy hearts, fans are posting messages online for the Ladies’ Code member, saying, “Kwon RiSe, happy birthday,” “Don’t forget RiSe unni,” “Today is Kwon RiSe’s birthday,” “We won’t forget,” and more.
Kwon RiSe, who became Japan’s representative in the 2009 Miss Korea pageant, later joined the 2010 season of MBC’s “Birth of a Great Star,” where she first hit the public eye as a singer. Later in 2013, RiSe made her official debut with Ladies’ Code. The group was involved in a serious car accident in September of last year, which unfortunately took the lives of both RiSe and EunB.
Ladies’ Code will be holding a memorial concert for RiSe and EunB this coming August 22 in Japan, featuring performances from label mates Kim Bum Soo, YDG, Ivy, Rumble Fish, Sun Woo, and Han Hee Jun.
