Celebrate 4 Years With Ladies’ Code

On March 7, 2013, five girls from Polaris Entertainment gathered together to mark their debut with “Bad Girl“.

These girls were Ashley, RiSe, EunB, Sojung, and Zuny. Together, these group of girls went on as Ladies’ Code, performing songs including “Hate You“, “Pretty Pretty” and “Kiss Kiss“. After an unspeakable accident happened in September 2014, two members, EunB and RiSe, passed away within a couple of days. Thus the remaining members went on a hiatus, mending the void in their hearts and recovering from injuries.

From encouraging words to letters written by fans every day, the three members received much support and came back on February 24, 2016 with a mini-album featuring the title track, “Galaxy“. In addition, another mini-album was released later in October called Strang3r with the title track “The Rain“.

Together along with the strength from fans, the girls continue as a three-member group, overcoming obstacles and becoming the group that the members dreamed of. To Ladies’ Code and Lavelys all around, March 7, 2017 marks the 4th anniversary since the birth of the group.
