GWSN was only promoted as a six-member group last year as member Soso had a ruptured ankle ligament; hence she was advised to take a break from group activities. She was inactive in the band since January 2020. And because of her injury, Soso was unable to take part in GWSN's comeback last April.

According to a source from GWSN, Soso had an ankle injury even before she made her debut. They also said that the "Puzzle Moon" singer experienced pain again during the group's promotions for "The Park in the Night Part Three." Additionally, symptoms of anxiety were seen in her, so the agency decided to let her focus on rest and treatment.

Wang Chingyi, commonly known as Soso, acts as one of the lead dancers and vocalists in GWSN.
