Korean girl group Ladies’ Code is poised to make a comeback with their mini album “Mystery” on Feb. 24, according to its agency Polaris Entertainment on Tuesday.

The group had been involved in a car accident on Sep 4. 2014 in which two of their members, RiSe and EunB, suffered fatal injuries. EunB died at the scene of the accident while RiSe died three days later due to head injuries. Sojung was also badly injured but recovered.

“The remaining three members have weathered hard times and braced for comeback,” the agency’s spokesperson said, adding, “Now is the right time, we believe.”

Ladies’ Code will remain a three-member group made up of Ashley, Sojung and Zuny, who survived the car crash. There will be no new recruits to take the places of RiSe and EunB.

The girl quintet debuted in 2013 and were awarded New Artist of the Year at the Gaon Chart K-Pop Awards in 2013. The girl group won the MBC Music Star Award at the MelOn Music Awards in November 2014.

Their upcoming mini album will mark the second release since their activities as a five-member group ended. A tribute to RiSe and EunB, “I will smile even if it hurts,” was released in September 2015.
