Ladies’ Code move forward with The Rain

Navigating Ladies’ Code musically feels like something that will take a lot of time. After a quiet but likable return with Galaxy at the beginning of the year, and Sojung’s stint on the show Girl’s Spirit (which I will eventually make a post about), LC have thankfully decided to not wait too long before gracing the masses with a new song.

Ladies Code follow up: Rise passes away (and me being in my feelings a little)

This week has basically been about Ladies Code. I have not been updating for the sole fact that I was busy, and just not in the mood considering most of the post were going to be about this incident.

To get into it…

Kwon Ri Se, also known by her stage name RiSe, has died.

Like everyone was pulling for her…even I was, and I had realistically saw this coming. Even if the odds were in the negatives…I was hoping we would hear that everything was okay, and then after months, we would hear she was doing okay. After that I didn’t really see her coming back to K Pop. My hopes were only going to go so far. But I, like so many people hoped she was going to make it.

However I also knew that was not going to happen. If she didn’t die…she was going to be in a vegetative state. Existing, but not living. Like every time they updated on the situation, it never sound like it was going to get better for her. I just…there was no light at the end of this tunnel.

The good news is that she is no longer in suffering, and her family does not have to sit there and guess/wait/hope anymore. As fucked up as that sounds…they can start grieving…and one day move on.

Shit…

Other good news…Sojung is on her way to a recovery. The families of Ladies Code (most notably RiSe and EunB) have been greatly supportive to all the ladies. The support that has been flowing from the industry has been beautiful. There have been idols tweeting, attending EunB’s wake and funeral,  wearing little black ribbons…all for these young ladies.

And the K Pop fandom got Ladies Code their first number 1 with “I’m Fine Thank You.”, out of respect and last wishes of EunB.

Even in all the bad…there has been some good.

But now, the good will have to settle back into a place of mourning again.

There has been a lot going on, and so much to talk about (idol schedules, traffic safety, the overall treatment of idols period)…but…right now…I don’t think I can say a lot.

I hope the rest of Ladies Code will heal and find solace in what they do later on in life. I hope the families of Eun Bi and Ri Se will be able to continue on in life after this (burying their children…and ones that were public figures…this is never going to go away I assume). I hope change happens.

I just hope these young ladies that have died are in a better place now.

To end this post on a slightly better note…here is the group’s last single as five. Kiss Kiss

Ladies Code involved in a car crash, member EunB passes away

Ladies Code had been involved in a serious car accident. Two confirmed dead, one of them being one of the members.

EunB and the group’s manager died in the crash.

Sojung and RiSae (Rise) are in critical condition. It is also apparently Sojung’s birthday…so…yeah…that’s fucked all the way up.

The other two members (leader Ashley and the youngest Zuny) are okay as well as their two stylist.

There are confirmed pictures of the crash, and it looks terrible.

I will not post them here…however here is a link if you are curious. 

This is an unfortunate situation for everyone involved. Prayers go out to the families and close loved ones of EunB, Rise and Sojung (Girl pull through on your birthday). Hopefully no more lives are lost, and these ladies can move forward with their lives.

R.I.P. EunB. Let the others get better

Ladies Code return with Pretty Pretty pt 3

AKA Kiss Kiss.

Ladies Code is a fun group, a good group. But they continue to make the same song over and over again.

1. Pretty Pretty

2. So Wonderful (lacks the bright sound, but has the overall same structure)

3. Kiss Kiss (same sound, except uses more of a strumming guitar and less horns, and lacks the same breakdown that the other two songs have. However this song has a very similar melody to Pretty Pretty, and some parts really just scream Pretty Pretty all over again. Like you could slip into that song in some parts)

Also this song isn’t as exciting as their last two clones.

The video itself is cute. But it is Pretty Pretty with a plot.

Overall…eh. It’s not terrible, but it’s been done by them…over and over again. Hopefully they are just using this as a reminder that they exist, and will come back early next year with a full ep/album. I really like Ladies Code, and I love the late70’s disco sound they have, but if they cannot expand on that sound further than what they have done, then it is time to look into something else.
