Her letter begins, “To our Dear Friends [official fanclub name], hello everyone, it’s Hyeyeon. I’m greeting you for the first time in a while, right? I’m so sorry for coming to greet you so late.
“Just as stated in the announcement made by our agency, I will be concluding my activities as a member of gugudan, and will henceforth be supporting gugudan as a Dear Friend with all of you, my Dear Friends. I have been away from you due to health reasons, taking a break and focusing on my studies. During that time, I thought a lot about many things and came to this decision.
“Thanks to your support, my health is recovering well, and I am doing well in school. During my time as a member of gugudan, I have been able to have such a wonderful time and create so many great memories and priceless experiences thanks to our Dear Friends, our members, and many others. I want to thank you once again for always being by my side and sending me your support. I will always treasure each and every one of you, and I will never forget you. I remember each and every moment of each and every day I’ve spent with you, and those moments are more precious to me than anything else. I will never forget you.
“Although my time with gugudan is ending, I will do my best to greet you again in the future, but I will be focusing on my studies and my health for the time being. My fellow gugudan members will continue to shine through their activities, so please give them all of your support, and I will always be supporting them as well, now as a Dear Friend. I will return to share what I’ve been up to. Our Dear Friends, thank you so much and as always, I love you. From Hyeyeon.”
Following Hyeyeon’s departure from the group, gugudan will now have eight members, Hana, Mimi, Nayoung, Haebin, Kim Sejeong, Soyee, Sally, and Mina. They are preparing to make a comeback on November 6 with their third mini album.
We wish Hyeyeon all the best!
