Why Are Girl Group Gugudan Losing One Member?

After hearing the heartbreaking news of Gugudan confirming the reports of making a comeback as 8 members, fans worried if one member had officially left the group. However, it was shared by the company that the member will be absent indefinitely for different reasons.

Member Soyee has been suffering from chronic and severe back and shoulder pains for quite some time (even before her debut and TV show appearances) and now it is starting to take a permanent toll on her health. Jellyfish Entertainment responded to fans concerns with an official press release on October 18th.

"Our Soyee has been suffering from shoulder pains, due to a shoulder injury she had before her debut. She has been going back and forth between promoting and receiving treatment. However, while preparing for Gugudan's comeback, she ended up pushing her shoulder past its limit and experienced severe pain."  For now, it has not been confirmed as to when she will come back to the group, but with the news of their comeback date set for November 8th, fans believe Soyee won't return to the stage until 2018.

Let's wish Soyee a speedy recovery!
