During the recent hearing, he acknowledge the charges against him, and explained his reason for speeding and apologized, commenting, "I received the car involved in the accident for the first time the day before [the accident] so it was an unfamiliar car to me... The members, who completed a filming around a rural area on that day, seemed tired so I was trying to take them back to their dorm quickly, but the result was devastating... I am in deep regret and reflection over the mistake I made in one moment. I sincerely apologize to everyone including the bereaved families and fans who fell into deep sorrow due to the accident. Please give me the opportunity to live out my life as I work harder." 


While acknowledging his mistake, he also asked that the court take into consideration that he had done the best he could to resolve the situation after the accident occurred, explaining "Immediately following the accident, I did my best to take all the rescue measures including calling 119 [emergency number]." 


The prosecution team did not reveal their reason for their proposed sentence amount this day.


The final verdict is expected to be given during the hearing on January 15 at 2 PM KST.

I'm glad he's getting punished but at the same time...it's a little sad. I got mixed feelings just because I know how close the girls were to him. He made a mistake...everyone does...but I guess that doesn't really justify his actions. I hope everyone will be able to find some kind of closure soon. Of course the most important thing at the moment is that the members are healthy and their families are healing.

Son Jin Youg had talked about having a crush on RiSe while on the show, and he said, "She's a special person to me because we became an issue through a love line, so I hurt even more. I still can't believe it. She was such a nice person who cared a lot. Whenever I released a new song, she would contact me even before I told her. Now that it doesn't happen, I feel like something's missing. I feel like she might still pick up when I call. It hurts a lot."

SEE ALSO: Prosecution asks for 2.5 year jail sentence for Ladies' Code's road manager + verdict expected in January


After reviewing CCTV footage, the investigative team found that Mr. Park had been speeding at 135.7kmh (~84.3mph) in a zone that is 80kmh (~50mph) during rain, causing the vehicle to slide on the road and slam into a wall. The defendant himself has admitted fault in the case and was sentenced to 1 year and 2 months of imprisonment.

Judge Jung stated, "Though the defendant is reflecting on his mistake, we took the defendant's gross negligence and the fact that he didn't come to an agreement with the bereaved families into account." Ladies' Code's agency Polaris Entertainment also stated, "We're prepared to appeal. We'll try to minimize the pain caused to the families of the deceased and Mr. Park."

I expect having the manager's court case over will allow Polaris to concentrate on the girls.  Still no word from them at all.

I wonder what Polaris is trying to appeal? Maybe to get him a shorter sentence, but 1 year 2 months us much better than 2.5 years. I just hope now that this is seemingly over, they can all begin the process of officially moving on.  comslave said:

[DEBATE] Is the punishment for Ladies' Code's manager fair or too harsh?


ladies-code_1422570674_af_org.jpg

Earlier this month, Ladies' Code's manager Park was found guilty of speeding before the vehicular crash that led to members EunB and RiSe's death. He was sentenced to one year and two months in jail. 


As the K-Pop community continues to grieve the tragic loss of the Ladies' Code members, many can't help but wonder how the court can gain justice for their deaths. With prosecution recently appealing to the court for a harsher sentence and Polaris Entertainment appealing for a lighter one, K-Pop fans are abuzz, arguing whether or not Park's punishment is fair.


While alim17 believes that Park's one year and two months sentence makes sense,pakman finds it to be too harsh.


SEE ALSO: Prosecution revealed to have appealed for heavier sentence against Ladies' Code's manager


While alim17 makes a good point that the Park needs to serve as an example for other managers and drivers in general by serving his sentence, pakman also makes a good point that it seems unfair that only Park would get severely punished for a mistake many others make habitually. 


What do you guys thinks?

SEOUL, SEPT,15: No more secrets. Ladies Code member, EunB, 22, who passed away due to tragic accident recently, has left many beautiful moments and memories for her family and fans…including a beautiful warm, acoustic duet track which she recorded with HyunMin-A.

In addition to active activities as the member of Ladies Code, the late EunB actually recorded a duet song in July 2013 with HyunMin-A, a Malaysian Entertainer and artist who has now broken into K-pop market as a K-pop singer. It is verified through Polaris Entertainment’s member that this duet track happens to be the first and last duet song from EunB ever recorded.

Through conversations between HyunMin and EunB’s moms recently, Eunbi’s mother stated that late EunB was very happy to be selected to sing the duet track with HyunMin-A. She added that back when she was getting ready to record the song…she noticed EunB was always humming the song around the house and seemed to be really excited about recording the song with Hyunmin-A…

The title of the duet track is called “Remember Me” which was actually scheduled to be launched towards the end of the year…after when Ladies Code’s latest singles “Kiss Kiss” promotion was finished.

According to HyunMin’s management, Blessync Media, the music video for the duet song which involves the two artists was being planned, along with a reality TV program which is being developed currently which also involved the two artists as main cast of the show…however, under the current situation at hand, Blessync Media is in the process of restructuring the previous planning entirely into a tribute promotion for the two young artists who passed away in a tragic accident…and with the cooperation of Polaris Entertainment, the duet song “Remember Me” will be released in accordance with the concept of the “EunB & Lisae Tribute”.

“Yes, it is the first and the last duet song EunB ever sang with any artist. Right now, EunB’s management, Polaris Entertainment is still in its sensitive stage. Once the grieving subsides and when they are able to get there head around things again, we then will start the discussion on what can be done with the song…”

“But before any discussion actually gets started seriously it can take potentially take more time. And as stated previously the only option we have with the song is to Dedicate the song as a “commemoration / tribute” song for EunB. Just to make things clear, this song will be a tribute song to EunB. There will be no rerecording with any other artists, ” said Blake Shin, CEO of Blessync Media.

HyunMin&EunB(Selpi)
Blake continued the explanation and told the media the reason why this “tribute” concept is actually important. “We want to make sure we really commemorate who these artists are…and their dedication to music. Our goal for this “tribute” is to somehow make sure what the two young artists are not forgotten and live on in the hearts of many K-pop fans around the world.”

How did HyunMin-A, or previously known as Ajieb Rosdi in Malaysia became engaged with EunB as the duet song partner? Blake Shin explained that while HyunMin was being trained at M Net Academy … Ladies Code was also preparing for their album and being trained there as well. So Naturally HyunMin and EunB became acquainted … and later on became friends …he further explained that the demo song was actually given to all the members of the Ladies Code but in the end…it was Eunbi who connected with the song the most powerfully…and also with Hyunmin as well in terms of chemistry.

Considering that this song happens to be the first and last duet song from EunB…we are planning things from many levels, and trying to come up with the best possible course of action for the duet song, “Remember Me”.

“Again…it is our intention and will do our best so that the memories of the beautiful young artists lives on in the hearts of many fans..” Blake Shin, stated.

The manager who was driving the Ladies’ Code van when it crashed and killed two of the girl group members, EunB and RiSe, revealed that he had come to a settlement with the families of the deceased.

On April 8, during the appeal, the manager’s lawyer said, “We have reached an agreement with the families of the deceased,” and revealed that they will soon be submitting the relevant documents to court.

The manager also read out an apology letter at the trial to the late EunB and RiSe’s family in tears. He said in the letter, “I truly apologize to the families and the victims. I will go to visit each one by one and ask for forgiveness.”

He also thanked his own family for supporting him through the difficult time and said, “I know there are people who will resent me for this. I will forever live this life I’ve been given in atonement.”

Meanwhile, he was sentenced to two years and six months in prison this day after the prosecutors appealed that the previous sentence of 1 year and 2 months was too light.

The members recently moved in to a dorm last month in Seoul and are back to their practice routine. "The members are living a normal life traveling to and from their dorm to their practice room. We're not preparing a comeback but they are still receiving vocal and choreography lessons."

The three are still receiving psychology treatments with their training along with follow-up treatments on the injuries sustained from the car accident. 

"Juni and Sojung live far away and Ashley's from America so none of them have a lot of close friends in Seoul. On their off time, they spend time with the company staff or with each other in their dorm."

"Nothing confirmed on the comeback yet. We are not at the point where we have begun collecting songs or planning a concept yet. Discussions, albeit little, are ongoing It's hard to say whether there will be a comeback within the year."

In all honesty, it's very hard for me to listen to their songs without tearing up. Even seeing edited pictured of just 3 of them is very hard to see. I can only hope for the remaining members to continue to lean on one another and to be strong.

Ladies’ Code’s Agency Responds to Comeback Rumors and Announces “RiSe & EunB Memorial Concert”

While a report was released stating that Ladies’ Code is preparing for a comeback after a tragic car accident last year, which resulted in the deaths of two members, EunB and RiSe, the group’s agency Polaris Entertainment has denied such rumors.

On May 29, an affiliate of Polaris Entertainment revealed, “The agency is suggesting that Ladies’ Code should resume their activities for the benefit of the members. The exact date or plan is yet to be decided but it looks like they will make a comeback soon.”

However, officials of the agency denied such reports and told news source TV Daily, “There were no discussions about Ladies’ Code’s comeback this year. The comeback would make more sense if we have some kind of framework, but we have nothing yet. As of right now, only the agency’s workers are discussing it among themselves.”

The officials also gave updates on the members, SojungAshley, and Zuny, saying, “Everything is okay with them but they’re still continuing their psychotherapy since the accident. Nevertheless, the three girls are bright and well, mainly staying in their dorm or practice room.”

In related news, it was announced that Ladies’ Code will be holding a “RiSe & Eunbi Memorial Concert” on August 22 at Tokyo, Japan.

Polaris Entertainment confirmed this news saying that performing in Japan, RiSe’s hometown, was one of her wishes.

During an interview that Ladies’ Code did in the past, they were asked what is one dream they want to achieve as singers. RiSe answered, “I want to perform in a big stadium, like the one in Yokohama, Japan. I want to hold a concert in a place filled with fans.”

soompi

I am not opposed to a comeback as long as the members themselves want it. From the looks of things, Polaris was simply testing the waters to see what kind of reaction people would have to a LC comeback and it's generally been positive with only the feelings of the members in mind. I'm thinking the memorial concert will hold another meaning other than being for EunB & RiSe, we may see them onstage which would be their first steps towards coming back. Although I'm just glad their wishes are being fulfilled and the company has spoken with everyone's families to be sure this is what is wanted.
