Early this year, gugudan‘s Hyeyeon took a break from all of her activities and schedules due to growing health concerns. Jellyfish Entertainment promised that she will return to the group once she recovers.
It seems like Hyeyeon has decided to permanently end her contract with the agency after much deliberation. Jellyfish revealed that she’ll be leaving the group to focus on her health and her studies.
“Hello. This is Jellyfish Entertainment.
First of all, we would like to thank the fans who love and support the group. Prior to [gugudan’s] comeback, however, we would like to present our official position regarding Hyeyeon’s future activities.
Hyeyeon has decided to devote her time for her studies while taking a good break for health reasons. She has discussed with us from time to time regarding her career and entertainment activities.
After deliberation, we decided to end her activities with the group so she can focus on her studies and recovery for the time being. Although her activity as a group member is finished, she will continue to be affiliated with Jellyfish Entertainment.
The group will continue with the release of their new album on November 6th and will show a new concept in the future.

Soon after the announcement, Hyeyeon uploaded a handwritten letter to gugudan’s fans. She thanked them for the unforgettable experience and love that she’s received since her debut and vowed to continue cheering gugudan on as a Danjjak than a member.
At present, gugudan is focusing on preparing on the release of their new mini-album and upcoming concert. They will continue activities with eight members.
