Roh Ji-hoon and Ladies Code’s RiSe
Do you remember the sad and tragic accident that involved one of the popular female K-Pop idols, Ladies Code? In this tragic car accident, two of the five Ladies Code members, EunB and RiSe, lost their lives.
RiSe was Roh Ji-hoon’s good friend since they became contestants in Birth of a Great Star. And his song, “September 7th,” is considered to be a tribute to Ladies Code’s RiSe by many who have speculated so. According to allkpop.com, Roh Ji-hoon’s 2nd mini-album titled Feeling was dropped on September 16th, 2015. And this song grabbed people’s attention as it was written and composed by his truly, seemingly for his good friend. The translations of the lyrics are, “…you, whom I can no longer see or touch again, I bring back up. Although I pledge to erase you and erase you, I am unable to easily cast you aside, that’s how we are, but you, whom I can no longer see or touch again, I send away.”
“Those memories, that desire, I need to send you away now through those fading memories… Bye, my love, the person I love, now I need to send you back to that place, the happy place. Bye, my love, the person, now come back to me so that we could be happy.”
The agency avoided talking in detail about this, but it appears that this really meant to be RiSe’s tribute song from Roh Ji-hoon.
