The fatal accident also left two other members, Rise and Sojung ― whose real name are Kwon Ri-se and Lee So-jung ― badly injured, while the two other members sustained minor wounds.

According to the group’s agency, Polaris Entertainment, Kwon received a severe head injury and underwent hours of emergency surgery. Her condition was not revealed as of Wednesday afternoon.

The group had been heading back to Seoul after participating in a KBS music show in Daegu at the time of the deadly accident.
