Ladies’ Code member Lee Sojung, 21, received surgery and is now in recovery while 23-year-old Kwon RiSe remains unconscious, the band’s management said Friday.

According to Polaris Entertainment, Lee underwent surgery for her upper jawbone and will need to monitor recovery before determining additional treatment.

Meanwhile, Kwon, who incurred severe head injuries in the car accident that killed their fellow Ladies’ Code member Go EunB, received nine hours of surgery Wednesday but has not yet woken up.

She is reportedly still in critical condition in intensive care unit.

A wake, set up for Go at Anam University Hospital, was attended by more than 50 celebrities paying their respects.

“We completed Go EunB’s funeral this morning,” Polaris Entertainment said. “It was a Christian service.”

Go was laid to rest at Skycastle Memorial Park, surrounded by family, band members Ashley Choi, 22, and Kim Zuny, 19 — both of whom are headed back to the hospital for minor injury treatment — friends from the entertainment company and about 20 fans.

A Hyundai Grand Starex carrying the band crashed into a protective wall around 1:23 a.m. Wednesday on the Youngdong Expressway. According to police, one of the van’s back wheels fell off while it was traveling on the slippery road from rain.

Go was taken to a Suwon hospital but did not survive, while Kwon and Lee were critically injured. Kim and Choi, as well as two stylists, suffered minor injuries.

Go reportedly did not have her seatbelt on when the driver lost control of the vehicle.

Super Junior’s Kim Heechul, who was involved in a car accident eight years ago, posted a message on his Instagram Thursday regarding the tragedy.

“What I want to ask of you is to always wear your seatbelts,” Kim said. “If I hadn’t been wearing my seatbelt eight years ago during my car accident…I feel like wearing a seatbelt is troublesome sometimes too, but I think about the past and always wear one. … I sincerely hope for EunB’s peaceful rest and for the happiness of those around EunB. I also hope for Kwon RiSe, who is still undergoing treatment, to recover quickly.”
