Member Sally currently participates in Produce Camp 2020.
There she revealed a bit more on gugudan's status.
The group hasn't had a cb since 2018.

She revealed
At the beginning of 2019, my agency told me to go back home.
When I asked them when I should come back, they told me there was no need to come back.
Members packed their stuff from the dorms, some resisted but ultimately gave up and left.
The company still hasn't released an official statement on the group's status, but it's safe to say that they're sadly done for.​

It's sad but it's for the best.

At this point koreans wouldn't start caring for them ever...

I hope Sally gets something out of that show.

Sejeong pretty much confirmed it with her solo

This is like Kiss & Cry but worse. That group also disbanded without any announcement at all and it wasn't until a former member went on a show and revealed what happened did the news break.

Hindsight I guess we should have seen this coming.

I kinda feel like they were doomed to fail from the start. First off, they pissed off all of the IOI fans by pulling Sejeong and Mina out early for their debut, then they had a silly name and a concept most people really didn't get. I think most of the IOI girls got the short end of the stick to be honest, they were the first of their kind and I think they suffered because none of their companies knew what to do with them after the group disbanded...

This is sad to hear because the girls have a lot of potential and their title tracks are bops. It's sad that Jellyfish just gave up on them like this

And now Sally is doing well on Produce Camp. It’s a pity because maybe her success would have brought Chinese fans to Gugudan.

They were a talented group. I will miss them.

This is exactly why i have always maintained that WJSN is not a IOI group. They added a girl to an existing group.

Pulling the 4 was a stupid and extremely short sighted move, Maybe the first in the host of missteps made by the winning companies.

Pledis was pure incompetence and half assed the whole deal.
MBK is mbk aka ccm the company that allowed a top 3 group to evaporate over night.
Fantagio even with the ongoing corporate train wreck has done the best of all the group agencies.
Starship because of the 'partnership ' with yeuhue doubled down on the pd phenomenon with those 2 and shipped chen xiao off to china and it has helped.
Jellyfish had a extremely talented group of artists(with MMM and RV the best vocal lines of that gen), with the true out of the blue 'rock star' of pd 101 and were clueless and incompetent. Yes they got unlucky with different girls missing from most comebacks, but they screwed the pooch in epic fashion.

I would say the same about those companies who pulled out of x1 but the kids seem to be forgiving of that.

If IZ*ONE is allowed to disband before concerts ect restart I would expect a similar pox on the new creations. Honestly setting aside that i am a Wiz one. That combination is Magic in a bottle and is far greater than the sum of its parts.

I figured they were done when it came out they had been offered to go on Queendom but didn't accept and I think Jellyfish just didn't respond so they clearly had no interest in even entertaining the idea.

To be fair the original lineup of Queendom was meant to be (G)I-dle, Oh My Girl, Lovelyz, April, Gugudan and DIA but it was DIA that took too long with feedback and got replaced with Bom and April and Gugudan just denied and got replaced with Mamamoo and AOA which is still weird that the 3 least successful artists out of all of that were the ones that said no.

Y, sounds really weird. Mamamoo and AOA gave the show so mcuh more buzz. I am sad for Gugudan and in this moments I am glad for CLC. Although they don't get the success they deserve, no lightstick, not much concerts or recognition, at least they get regular comebacks even after six years, acting and show appeareances or help in learning producing skills and setting up youtube channels. As far as I know they still got a dorm.
Cube surely is not perfect and I am afraif what will happen with the new owners, but at least they don't pracitally cancel a group and let everyone in the dark for ofter a year.

Everyone who refused to be on queendom surely regrets their decision.

I read that as jellyfish had already given gugudan the boot/given up or maybe Mina was locked up with filming for some sort of positive spin.

Its funny the addition of AOA and MMM made me not care about the show because they are know entities.
Didnt help that about all i liked was destiny most of the others i did not even finish watching.

I think queendom exposed more about the companies than the groups. Its especially crazy that the ones that had sent the most kids to competition shows are the ones who refused to try.

That is why I almost defend Cube

Some companies seem so poor that it was better they didnt exist. They just give false hope to the children and when they get a chance, they mess up everything.

I think Gugudan is an one-member group now, since they are still using the youtube channel
