Additionally, the company expressed their gratefulness for fans, “We once again thank you for the great support you have sent, and we sincerely apologize for the sudden news to the fans who love Gugudan.”
Gugudan gained immense attention pre-debut following the additions of I.O.I members Sejeong and Mina. Subsequently, the group debuted in June 2016 with nine members.
