The appeal trial has now ended for the manager, Mr. Park (27), of Ladies' Code who sped on a rainy highway, leading to the deaths of two members, EunB and RiSe, who will be missed forever.

On April 15, the Suwon District Court announced the result of the trial in which prosecutors were demanding an extended sentence of two year and six months while Mr. Park was hoping for a lighter sentence, especially after reaching an agreement with the bereaved families.

The court announced a result in favor of Mr. Park by turning his one year and two months jail sentence into a one year and two months jail sentence after a stay of execution of two years, meaning as long as he did not commit a crime and behaved well during that period of time, he will not have to go to prison.  On top of that, he would need to do 160 hours of community service and attend 40 hours of law-abiding driving classes.

The judge stated, "While there is a need for punishment that corresponds to the mental pain endured by the families of the deceased and the other victims, the bereaved families reached an agreement with the defendant and are hoping for leniency for the defendant. Considering the large sum deposited by the defendant and his hard work in order to help the victims' families recover from the harm, the sentence originally given is somewhat harsh.  

As the deaths of two people and the harm done to the other four are serious results, we additionally ordered community service and law-abiding driving courses."

What are your thoughts on this decision?  Fair, not fair enough, or too lenient?

i like how the blame was placed on the driver, when the problem is actually the kpop industry itself

I'm not very familiar with Ladies' Code or its members, but just reading this and seeing a picture of the two dead members makes me cry. They were so young and had such a bright future ahead of them, and now, because of a reckless driver, they're dead. I don't think the manager received a fair punishment, but there's nothingI can do about that.

It's a fair punishment for him. I hope he doesn't beat himself over it too much and I hope he is able to move on within a few years. It wasn't intentional. ;

But what about the other people involved? Like the company, etc. ;

I think it's fair

What punishment company got? Oh, they company reps weren't prosecuted?

It's joke to only chose easiest target to focus whole blame on, without looking into reasons why managers speed, don't get enough sleep and have to drive in bad weather. I doubt manager is only one in fault in this case.

you do know that Ladies'Code just came from their last performance of their promotions. they were celebrating that promotions had ended. The manager is the blame here FOR driving too fast. but we all know it was an accident. your idea's are a bit far-fetched

I kinda agree, there were people above him demanding that the group attend every performance or event they were invited to,. Even when that meant no one got to sleep or eat. He drove the car dangerously but there are those that told him to do it that shouldn't walk away from this totally without blame.

This sentence seems fair enough. Wish him well for the future~

I agree with this. He already reached an agreement with the families involved, A.K.A. the people whose opinion ;actually matters. He'll serve the sentence given to him, and we can all move on from a fellow human being's mistake.

Are you kidding me?! This "sentence" is disgraceful! While yes, he didn't actually kill ;them himself (as in he murdered them) he deliberately sped and those deliberate actions of his caused two deaths. In my country this is manslaughter and can result in a prison sentence of at least 6 years or so. This disgraceful beings sentence is a slap on the wrist.

I think he got more sentence than he deserved.
