RIP Ladies Code EunB and RiSe

Korean celebrities have been involved in traffic accidents far too often, a few of them had close shave in the past few years, and sadly these two girls have suffered the worst.

A few of the incidents might be pure (bad) luck, but human faults played huge parts in most – hectic schedule, overworked staff/driver, inconsiderate corporate culture, and the lack of safety awareness etc. Hope this tragedy could serve as a wakeup call for all parties.

Rest in peace EunB and RiSe. Condolences to the families and friends.
