EunB from the K-pop girl group Ladies’ Code has died.
According to allkpop, EunB and other group members were traveling in a van that crashed after the driver lost control on a slippery roadway just after 1 a.m.
“At around 1:20 AM in South Korea, the girls’ van ran into a protective wall in the vicinity of the Singal Intersection on the Yeongdong Expressway in the direction of Incheon.”
EunB died from the injuries she sustained in the accident, while two other band members, Sojung and RiSe, are in critical condition at St. Vincent’s Hospital. An update on their condition is unknown at this time. Of the seven passengers in the van (including the driver), two people have been confirmed dead: EunB and the unnamed driver. Two of the other Ladies’ Code members and two stylists were also injured in the crash, but they are said to be okay.
EunB was just 22-years-old.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of fans have left their condolences on Twitter.
And for the fans, I know you guys will stay strong, and keep EunB in your hearts until the end. She has her place here, forever.

For those who don’t know what K-pop is, it refers to pop music that originated in South Korea. The “K” actually stands for “Korea.” According to Wikipedia, the music genre is “characterized by a wide variety of audiovisual elements.”
“Although it comprises all genres of ‘popular music’ within South Korea, the term is more often used in a narrower sense to describe a modern form of South Korean pop music covering mostly dance-pop, pop ballad, electronic, rock, hip-hop, R&B, etc.”
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Korean students made headlines back in June when they posted a choreographed dance video online. The video was a hit amongst K-pop fans, even if the music used in the video was by American artists like Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. The dance moves and style gives more insight into what K-pop is all about.
