Ladies” Code and the world of K-Pop suffered a loss this week with the death of EunB in a motor vehicle accident on September 3.
Media outlets throughout the world have been following her death and the events surrounding the accident, while fans have shown support for the group by leading their 2013 release “I”m Fine Thank You” to the top of Korean charts including Olleh and Melon.
As of print, Ladies” Code “Kiss Kiss” placed at the number nine spot on the “M Countdown” chart, following a tribute to the group on the September 4 episode.
EunB memorialized on “M Countdown.”
K-Pop fans on the forum OneHallyu expressed their gratitude to the “M Countdown” tribute. Forum user thatsvicchan stated, “This is so sad…. but I am glad M!CD [M Countdown] did this. EunBi would be proud.”
The posthumous attention that EunB has received by Korean media and Western mainstream press is unfortunate, given the fact that Ladies” Code did not receive the same degree of attention prior to the September 3 accident.
EunB is one of the first members of an idol group to die since K-Pop began to have a more global impact in 2012. News of her death was a trending topic on Facebook and Twitter, which caused many fans and the media to search for information about her career.
EunB also became the focus on a trending story for the New York City based media outlet MTV.com. It should be noted that MTV.com rarely runs stories regarding K-Pop.
In many unfortunate ways, EunB”s death is like a morose version of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. How many celebrities and fans of those celebrities actually paid attention to ALS or knew what it was prior to the ice bucket challenge? In death, EunB has become a trending topic and has drawn worldwide attention.
The death of EunB also draws attention to the humanity of K-Pop idols.
Beyond being rookie K-Pop idols, the members of Ladies” Code are young women, with families and friends. As condolences began to pour out from Korean celebrities, it is clear who is friends with the members of Ladies” Code and who wanted to offer comfort, without knowing the women.
Members of the Korean entertainment industry and their fans have not been this distraught since the SEWOL Ferry tragedy in April 2014.
In recent months, news surrounding Korean entertainment has been heavily focused on scandals. EunB”s death serves as a virtual refresh button for both fans and the media. Scandals may bring in readers and viewership, but the sheer salaciousness of the details help to create situations in which K-Pop idols are dehumanized.
It is easy to embrace the image of idols which provides nicknames, stage personalities, an overabundance of aegyo or cuteness. K-Pop idols rarely cry on television or before an audience. When they do, it is either scripted as part of their K-Drama role or appears to be staged.
For fans and the media, the death of a twenty-one year old (22 in Korean years) entertainer is unimaginable. Polaris Entertainment, the agency representing Ladies” Code, has provided timely information regarding the funeral plans for EunB and the status of the remaining members of the group. Rather than being exploitative, Polaris Entertainment has been dignified in their handling of the event.
The story is even more distressing considering that the last media accounts from Korea on September 4 stated that Sojung and RiSe, who allegedly remains unconcious, have no knowledge of the death of their group mate.
We will mourn the death of EunB, while awaiting news surrounding the recovery of her group mates RiSe and Sojung. As we do this, we should consider the music of Ladies” Code and other rookie groups which may be flying under our radar.
5 Idols Who Should Support NOH8 Written by Camiele On September 9, 2014
The world at large has been blanketed in a great deal of ugliness this year—from overt and aggressive racism, to rampant genocide. The world of K-pop has also been dealt heavy blows, very little of which has to do with the music. In the wake of all this sadness and inexplicable hatred, there’s at least been one small step for progress and equality. In countries such as Japan, France, England, and an increasing number of states in the US, we’ve seen the fight for marriage equality begin to prevail. One can only wonder if it will ever reach South Korea.

It’s a grand entrance for a gorgeous woman, whom we’ll come to know as SA-RA (Han Ye-seul), who walks down a street and turns heads left and right with her stunning appearance. Everywhere she goes she attracts admiring glances and drops jaws; she explains that she’s an actress who’s just come back to Korea after working in the U.S. This makes sense to everyone who sees her, and she gets the royal treatment.
She gets her fortune told by a face reader, who is awed by the interesting combination of fates she holds in her hands (er, face): Not only is she an uncommon beauty, she also has the fortune of a military general and might even save the nation. That is, if she steers clear of her two pitfalls: the need to get involved in matters, and bad guys.
Music & Lyrics: Soju Will Set You Free Written by Laura On November 22, 2014
Have you ever wondered about the fact that every drama has at least one scene where a main character gets ragingly drunk? Or how routinely alcohol is mentioned in many Korean songs? This constant presence of the subject may lead some readers to make inferences about the importance of alcohol in South-Korean society.
Of course, such conclusions should not merely be based on the select media foreign fans consume. But even a little bit of research will quickly direct the reader to many articles about the drinking etiquette in South Korea, as well as articles about its importance in society (particularly in the work environment).
According to statistics, the middle class take up 60% of Korea.
The new JTBC drama “Maids” deal with the unofficial history of maids who were pushed back by the generation that leaned heavily on the males. The setting is based in the Joseon times with 60% of the population made up of servants and maids. The drama is the story of real people and relates to the middle class people in the world today.
The press conference for “Maids” was held in the Hoam Art Hall on the 10th. The drama official said, ““Maids” is a historical but it also talks about the “misaengs” and “subjects” of today”s generation”.
“The King”s Face” is a rather disjointed drama. It takes the central idea that face reading is powerful enough to determine a man”s destiny and tries to piece the different parts of the drama to that. The most important pieces that are tied together by face reading is that King Seonjo was not meant to be king and that Gwanghae is destined to be a great king. It puts father and son directly at odds, which is the main story played out by “The King”s Face”.
In a week where Korean films have sold well at the local box office, the success of “Ode to My Father” certainly stands out.Three domestic movies dominated the top three box-office slots this weekend, including documentary “My Love, Don”t Cross That River“, which pulled at the heartstrings of audiences by showing the endearing love of an elderly couple. But the baton has been handed over to a story about the patriarchal figures in our nation.“Ode to My Father”, which opened in local theaters on Dec. 17, has firmly grabbed the No. 1 spot for two consecutive weeks, pulling in 4.2 million viewers and making 11.3 billion won ($10.3 million) as of Monday.A day after opening, the film had already outperformed the much-anticipated Hollywood blockbuster “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies”. The finale of Peter Jackson”s Hobbit trilogy landed in fourth place over the weekend. Considering the speed at which “Ode” is sucking in the audience, industry insiders are saying that it may go shoulder to shoulder with “The Masquerade” (2012), which scored an audience of 10 million. With the movie”s success, a new light is being shed on Korea”s modern history, which the movie is set in. Deok-soo, played by Hwang Jung-min, is central to the plot, which addresses pivotal historical events such as the Hungnam evacuation during the 1950-53 Korean War, the dispatch of miners and nurses to Germany in the 1960s, the Vietnam War, and also the reunions of separated families of North and South Korea in the 1980s. In the movie, Deok-soo becomes the head of the family at a young age because his father disappears during the Korean War. Struggling through deep poverty, Deok-soo makes sacrifices to earn food for his family throughout his teens to his 40s. He is a representative figure of Korea”s fathers from this generation. Generally, a movie first becomes a hit among moviegoers in their 20s and starts to slowly gain support from the middle-aged demographic. However, the biggest contributor to the popularity of “Ode” was people in their 40s, who took up 34.5 percent of ticket sales, according to statistics collected by CGV as of Wednesday. Those in their 20s recorded 33.9 percent while people in their 30s accounted for 26.9 percent. In contrast, the majority of viewers who flocked to “My Love” were in their 20s. “People who are currently in their middle ages have always been depicted as sacrificial figures”, said movie critic Kang Yoo-jung. “From seeing the story of their parents who have become the elders now, they must have felt some kind of condolences from acknowledging the fact that they were also once the children of someone and that they, too, have devoted fathers”.Koreans who have had similar experiences to Deok-soo empathized with the character. “Audiences who lived around the era in which Deok-soo lived will feel like that the movie is an ode to themselves and feel nostalgic and comfort”, said film critic Kim Hyung-seok. “Ode” takes on several important historical issues that have happened in Korea, but it does not include specific perspectives that could end up creating political divides. Considering the success of “The Attorney” and “The Admiral: Roaring Currents”, which scored huge box-office numbers by reflecting on certain political and social ideologies, it is clear that “Ode to My Father” is taking a different path. “As a countereffect of feeling uncomfortable with overly social movies, people were looking for a human drama at which they could just simply cry and laugh”, said Kang. Director Yoon Je-kyoon, who was also behind the movie “Haeundae” (2009), which had more than 10 million viewers, said that he intentionally excluded any political point of views. “I could have melded my own political opinion in the movie, but I completely eliminated it”, he said. “I just wanted to tell the story of our parents who endured hardships in severe poverty. “I hope people in the younger generation will watch this movie with their parents and talk about it afterwards”.Crime movie “The Con Artists”, starring up-and-coming Hallyu star Kim Woo-bin and Lee Hyun-woo, was in second place with an audience of 662,686, followed by “My Love, Don”t Cross That River“.“The Royal Tailor”, which opened on Christmas Eve, ranked in fifth with 244,878 viewers, followed by Russian animation “The Snow Queen 2″, which lured in 202,369.BY LIM JU-RI, JIN EUN-SOO [email@example.com]
