On September 17, SBS's 'One Night of TV Entertainment' covered Ladies' Code's car accident, receiving witness accounts from people who were present at the scene of the accident as well as statements from experts.

An acquaintance of one witness disclosed on the program, "He says he saw the vehicle shaking.  To avoid [an accident], they must have veered.  He says while [the car] was [veering], it hit the protective wall and rolled over three times."

An ambulance worker who had gone to the site stated, "[At the site], about two or three men were signaling with their hands.  Overall, the vehicle of the accident was crushed and one of the rear wheels was out."

The experts deemed that the rear wheel must have fallen out because there had been a problem with maintenance or it had gotten damaged through excessive use of the car. They analyzed that the reason behind the accident may be due to a flaw with the car itself.

One expert stated, "What is important is whether they were wearing a seatbelt and where they were positioned during the accident."

The ambulance worker stated, "While saving the lives of those who were collapsed after going out to the site, I do not recall undoing any seat belts."

They were very unlucky and I am very sorry <3. I don't think you can single them out for not wearing their seatbelts, it seems like a deep problem in the society that seatbelts are not commonly worn, especially by people in the backseats. I still remember Yongwha laughing at Seohyun about the belts. We can only hope people take a strong warning from situations like this because it's very sad, but more than anything, the seatbelt law needs to be strictly enforced. I do think the biggest problem here is how the wheel came off from the rented car.

It's really a tragic accident, rest in peace, EunB and Rise <3

Everyone stop arguing about the seatbelts thingy. What done cannot be undone. Let all remember them in silence and watch this. It's still hurt me after 3 weeks and counting...

There are so many KPOP videos that send a bad image with respect to seat belts. I love Sistar, but in looking at their "I Swear" video after the Ladies Code situation, it's hard not to yell "buckle the hell up" as they cruise down the highway standing up in the car. There are so many other similar mvs by so many other groups. I'd love to the KPOP business and idols and fans get behind a movement to at least clean up the images they show in the videos. The idols and their managers have so much power to change these things, and they would get so much goodwill for making the effort.

in a MV it doesnt really count the same. Usually for filming purposes they are only going Maybe 5-10 mph. this is in movies and MVs worldwide. Out of a MV people should wear a seat belt but if they dont wear it, they risk their own safety and life. It is a choice we make to wear it or not. =/ People just arent in the habit of doing it and dont think its a big deal until something bad happens. Thats just the mind process, what can we really do.

What would be a plus would be publicity, more sensibilisation campain...either it would be texting, driving while exhausted...seatbelts too in some saved my own life once so...

Seatbelts are extremely important, they may not save your life 100% BUT there is a higher probability of survival if you wear a seatbelt (the three-pointer one, not the one that goes only over your waist). I have seen many footage of idols sitting in their vans and not wearing their seatbelts. Makes me really worried. In my country, you will get fined if an officer sees it. It is considered an offence. But I'm glad this law is in place.

Ultimately, whether it is a law or not, wearing a seatbelt can make a difference.

Please spread the importance of wearing a seatbelt to your loved ones.

Shocking, but true. People neglect seatbelts far too often. In my country, it used to be a must to wear a seatbelt only when you're in the front passenger seat. But they've made it now so that ALL passengers must do so. If they fail to and the police check, you can get big fines... I'm a little surprised it's not the same in South Korea? (Or is it? Correct me, if I'm wrong please).

jypnloves Thursday, September 18, 2014

are you from malaysia??or the situation is just the same??

nyxus Thursday, September 18, 2014

@jypnloves No, I'm not. I'm all the way back in Europe c:

rubbly Thursday, September 18, 2014

evven if it is the law how do you 100% enforce it? You cant really. I used to put my seatbelt on and my friends told me I was the only one that got in her car and did it right away without her asking.

nyxus Friday, September 19, 2014

@rubbly Well, point is you can't. Since lots of people don't follow it anyways (seatbelts, talking on the phone while driving etc.) But if you fail to comply and get caught, it'll be on you. And perhaps after paying a fine 2-3 times that steadily grows bigger, if you have this previously registered offense... you'd think twice, right? Since giving away your money for something so silly would just be a shame. People learn from mistakes c:

@nyxus Sadly, in SK you don't have to wear seatbelt in the back seat. And I haven't hear any news about the korean goverment changing it.

sevenseasons Thursday, September 18, 2014

Everyone needs Seohyun in their group

shawolkpop96 Thursday, September 18, 2014

True! Hahahaha

rindr Thursday, September 18, 2014

How disrespectful, you should have died instead of EunB and RiSe

serialmania Thursday, September 18, 2014

No if only they hire driver who have good driving skill such as Aryton Senna this tragedy would have been prevented...

fxcx09 Thursday, September 18, 2014

@serialmania so youre saying that the person who drove the car was a bad driver? a car accident could've happened whether or not the driver is good or bad. and the article mentioned that the car itself had flaws. seriously man.

crazy808 Thursday, September 18, 2014

@serialmania No matter how good one singular driver is, they have no control over everyone else driving around them. Driver's education doesn't usually cover what to do in the case of a singular catastrophic accident. There were lots of little things that led up to this. (Car, schedule, rain, seat belts...etc)

rubbly Thursday, September 18, 2014

@serialmania dont blame the driver, he was doing his job and due the the car, was also in this horrible accident.

vedved82491 Thursday, September 18, 2014

I don't get it. I keep hearing opposing news stories regarding what happened, how it happened, whether seat belts were on or not, etc.

I thought it happened in a secluded area in the middle of the night, and yet there are witnesses now? I don't know...

rubbly Thursday, September 18, 2014

secluded could mean maybe since it was night it was very un busy unlike in the middle of the city for example.

dmoc Thursday, September 18, 2014

First of all, I know how important it is to wear a seat belt and it could probably have save the lives of EunB and Rise. However, I feel that if you are to rent a car from a dealership or rental area, it should be maintain appropriately to a condition that it should not fall apart or breakdown. Honestly do wish that Korea takes a better look at how dangerous a vehicle really is when not taking the proper measure of safety when driving.

sunnynwonderful Thursday, September 18, 2014

Most places in Asia have public transportation like taxis that don't even have functioning seatbelts. That and the scary disobedient driving, it's truly a death ride on the road in the Asia.

Seat Belt, Seat Belt, Seat Belt!...& mindful driving in unfavourable weather.
