Hyeyeon leaves gugudan, will remain under Jellyfish

Dear Danjjaks,

Hi, this is Hyeyeon.

It has been some time, I'm sorry for being late [with an update]. As my company has already shared the news, I will no longer be a member of gugudan, but I will join and be a Danjjak who will always continue to support gugudan. After a long decision, while on my hiatus contemplating, while I was focusing on both my studies and health.

Thanks to Danjjak, I have been able to focus in my academics, and I am also recovering well. I am grateful for all the memories I have been able to create with Danjjak. I was able to share precious moments with Danjjak by my side, who got to see me grow/gain experience~ This will be a time of my life I will never forget and always cherish~! I will never forget and always remember all the times spent with Danjjak, which are the most precious to me!

I will continue to focus on both my health and academics, and will be completing my activities with gugudan. I hope to give a proper goodbye.

Please continue to cheer on all the eonnies of gugudan, as they continue to show a more beautiful side of them. I too will support gugudan as a Danjjak. I hope to meet you all soon.

Thank you Danjjak, I love you.

Sincerely, Hyeyeon

Groups that have names that focus of number of members they have are always doomed to fail tbh eg 9 muses

this, its like they curse themselves

yep, and they went so elaborate with the 9 times table thing, it's kind of a joke now with the numbers

hellicoptajuuce 26th-Oct-2018 02:00 am (UTC)
That just means theyve already done half the job already

wait... so... she's leaving the group but not the agency? i sincerely hope she's okay and that she will work on her health but this just feels like shes leaving the group to become an actress or something like that :| rip gugudan 5959, ice chu was a blessing
lil_poisonfrog 25th-Oct-2018 10:59 am (UTC)
No more oguogu is the saddest part of this. Ice Chu was such an underrated debut. I'll never forget the voguing in the dance break for as long as I live lol
gathyou 25th-Oct-2018 11:42 am (UTC)
I'll miss Oguogu too, this song is such a jam
pikapika217 25th-Oct-2018 11:11 am (UTC)
she was one of my favorite members ;___;

But I'm glad she's being allowed to prioritize her health
rockerista03 25th-Oct-2018 11:32 am (UTC)
Damn, so does that mean she's not participating in their first solo concert as well?

Best of luck to her and the girls tho!
gathyou 25th-Oct-2018 11:34 am (UTC)
They probably are announcing it now because the concert is happening soon, they had to update us on Hyeyeon's hiatus :/
gathyou 25th-Oct-2018 11:33 am (UTC)
She was one of my favourite :( I'm really sad about it. I hope she'll get better, idol life is really tough and she's right to put her health before anything else.
Also Jellyfish... that's why you don't base the name of your group on the number of members TT
myrrhcat 25th-Oct-2018 12:25 pm (UTC)
aww hyeyeon my lil fave. I'm glad she's doing what's best for her health though
Tbh gugudan should add a new member, they still can at this point in their career. That way they don't have to become palpaldan
dior_chic 25th-Oct-2018 01:43 pm (UTC)
Good for her, she’s still really young and is prob realizing that being an idol prob isn’t worth it. For pursue education but still stay with company in case she wants to still entertain but in a less demanding environment, it sounds like she’s making the right choice

She also always reminded by a young Seohyun looks-wise
kcaomei 25th-Oct-2018 01:53 pm (UTC)
aww i love her, sad we're losing her and oguogu :( but i'm glad she's taking care of herself and i wish her all the best
vintage_boom 25th-Oct-2018 02:44 pm (UTC)
Aw that sucks for fans but it looks like maybe some agencies are realizing they need to be be more flexible about idols health and needing to take a step back. I’d rather see a lot of “temporary stopping activities” and “leaving the group but staying at the agency” than members continuing through serious pain and health problems.

So while this is sad for fans and the members it might be an indication of some real change within the agencies, albeit a small one.
myungung 25th-Oct-2018 02:56 pm (UTC)
it really sucks to hear that, since she's one of the few who can dance and sing. at least she gets to focus on her health, since it was what pulled her out of activities.

and as many said, she's still young, so she could actually do something else if the idol life doesn't work for her

noooo, this bums me out. :( i'm glad she's focusing on her health, though.

ioi was a curse
mortkero 25th-Oct-2018 06:29 pm (UTC)
Ice Chu was my summer tune last year, sorry to see her go but I wish her the best.
goshipgurl 25th-Oct-2018 08:33 pm (UTC)
she's leaving the group for health and academic reasons but is still part of the company? hmm... #actress #solodebut

I hope she's okay and takes care of herself.
