Hyeyeon has left a handwritten letter for fans following the news of her exit from Gugudan.
On October 25, Jellyfish Entertainment revealed Hyeyeon would be officially leaving the group due to health issues, and she's shared a handwritten letter to fans on Gugudan's fan cafe. Hyeyeon's letter is as follows:
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. I made the decision after thinking long during my hiatus and 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 and 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, who are the most precious to me!
I will continue to focus on both my health and academics, and I'll be completing my activities with Gugudan. I hope to give a proper goodbye. Please continue to cheer on all the unnies 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.
