From “ICE CHU” To A Doctor… Here’s The Current Whereabouts Of gugudan’s Former Maknae, Hyeyeon

Did you recognize her?

Girl group gugudan may have disbanded, but the girls left us with many hit songs. Sub-unit OGU OGU consisting of Mina and Hyeyeon made a splash in the summer with “ICE CHU.”

Despite the sub-unit’s success, Hyeyeon left gugudan in 2018, citing health reasons and wanting to study.

Hyeyeon has decided to devote her time for her studies while taking a good break for health reasons. She has discussed with us from time to time regarding her career and entertainment activities.

Fans did not hear from Hyeyeon for quite some time. Four years later, Hyeyeon made waves with her debut as an actress on The Murderer’s Shopping List. She played a minor role as a part-time worker and changed her stage name to Jo A Ram.

In 2023, she is finally receiving the spotlight in the K-Drama Dr. Cha. She plays a resident doctor, Jeon So Ra. Fans were shocked to realize that she was the maknae in gugudan.

No, but kids… I’m so shocked. I loved Doctor So Ra in Doctor Cha so much that I searched her up to find her name and they said she was Jo Hyeyeon from gugudan… The gugudan maknae who sang “ICE CHU…”
