Background[edit]

On September 3, 2014, the group was involved in a car accident that ultimately claimed the lives of members EunB and RiSe.[1] In the following months, the remaining members went on hiatus to focus on their physical and mental recovery, eventually resuming practice schedules while continuing to receive counseling and follow-up medical treatment.[2][3]

On January 23, 2016, Ladies' Code announced their upcoming comeback as a trio. They released the EP Myst3ry and title track "Galaxy" on February 24.[4][5]

Music video[edit]

Released February 24, 2016, the music video for "Galaxy" was directed by Jo Bum-jin and VM Project and choreographed by Kim Hwa-young.[6]

Release and promotion[edit]

Myst3ry was released in South Korea on February 24, 2016, as their first major release since the fatal car accident. Due to the sensitive nature of the group's return, Polaris Entertainment reported that variety show appearances would be limited to avoid misunderstanding. The group would instead focus on the musical aspects of the release.[7]
