Ladies' Code EunB

I know this is a SM centric blog, but I want to express my condolences to the family, members, friends, and fans of Ladies' Code.  This morning member EunB passed away due to a car accident involving the group.  Two other members, RiSe and Sojung, along with two staff members remain in critical condition.  The accident was due to their van slipping in the rain.

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes for a quick and full recovery to RiSe and Sojung and Rest In Peace EunB.

슬픔속에 그댈 지워야만 해~ 여러분 이 노래 혹시 기억하시나요?
네~ 제가 바로 드라마 '미미'의 OST중 '슬픔 속에 그댈 지워야만 해'를 부른 웬디입니다 ^^ 
어렸을 때부터 음악을 좋아해서 노래도 많이 부르고 악기도 많이 배웠었는데요~
(요즘은 기타도 열심히 연습하고 있어요~^^)
이제는 여러분께 제 노래를 들려드릴 수 있어서 무척 행복합니다!!
아! 그거 아세요?
제 이름 Wendy의 뜻이 도움을 주는 친구래요~ㅎㅎ 
앞으로 여러분들께 노래로 도움을 줄 수 있는 친구가 되겠습니다!
다음에 또 새로운 모습 보여드릴테니까 저 Wendy 잊지 말고 기억해주세용~~♡

"In my sorrow I must forget you"~  Everyone, do you remember this song by chance?
Yes~ I am Wendy who sang "In My Sorrow I Must Forget You" for the drama "MIMI"'s OST. ^^
Because I've liked music since I was young, I sang a lot and learned to play a lot of instruments~
(Lately I'm diligently practicing the guitar~ ^^)
Now since I'm able to sing for you all, I'm extremely happy!!
Ah!  Did you know?
My name means "a friend who gives assistance"~ hee hee
In the future I will become a friend who can give you all assistance through song!
Next time I think I will show you a fresh image again, so please don't forget and remember me~~<3
