Unfortunately, Gugudan’s Hyeyeon is no longer a part of Gugudan.
On October 25, Jellyfish Entertainment shared a statement in which they explained that Hyeyeon is leaving the group.
“Hyeyeon is ending her activities with gugudan. The decision has been made after discussions about her future career path in the entertainment industry. Hyeyeon has been dedicated to her studies since May while she took a break due to health issues.
Although she will be leaving the group, she will still be managed by Jellyfish Entertainment.
Please continue to show your support for Hyeyeon and the remaining eight members of gugudan.”
gugudan is now an eight member-girl-group they consist of Hana, Mimi, Nayoung, Haebin, Kim Sejeong, Soyee, Sally, and Mina.
The group is currently preparing for their upcoming comeback which will be released on November 6.
Back in May, the agency revealed that Hyeyeon will be halting her activities with the group due to health concerns. Aside from her studies, Jellyfish Entertainment halted all her activities to focus on helping her regain her health.
