Gugudan (Hangul구구단), also stylized as gu9udan[1] or gx9, is a South Korean girl group formed in 2016 by Jellyfish Entertainment. They debuted on June 28, 2016 with the mini-album Act. 1 The Little Mermaid and its title track "Wonderland".[2][3] The group consists of nine members: Mimi, Hana, Haebin, Nayoung, Sejeong, Sally, Soyee, Mina and Hyeyeon.



In January 2016, Nayoung, Sejeong and Mina were introduced as Jellyfish Entertainment's first female trainees on the Mnet survival show Produce 101, where 101 female trainees from various companies competed to debut in an 11-member girl group that would promote for a year under YMC Entertainment.[4] After placing 2nd and 9th respectively in the final episode, Sejeong and Mina eventually debuted as members of I.O.I in May 2016.

Despite denying earlier reports about Sejeong and Mina debuting in a 3-member girl group in June, Jellyfish Entertainment confirmed on June 7 that the two I.O.I members would debut within the month in what would be the company's first girl group.[5][6] Because of YMC Entertainment's special terms in which I.O.I's members are allowed to do activities under their respective companies while I.O.I was on break or while the group promoted in sub-units, there were no complications with the plan.[7]

Nayoung was also confirmed as a member on June 10[8] and on June 13, Jellyfish Entertainment revealed that Gugudan would be a 9-member group.[9] On June 17, Jellyfish Entertainment announced the group name.[10]

On June 22, the group confirmed that they were going for a "mermaid" concept.[11] Following the announcement, a highlight medley of the group's debut mini-album was released on June 24 and[12] they eventually debuted, on June 28, 2016, with the mini-album, Act. 1 The Little Mermaid, with "Wonderland" as the title song.[2][3] The song's music video was released online via a live countdown on the Naver V App.

Gugudan participated in Jellyfish Entertainment's yearly winter project, Jelly Christmas 2016, with their label mates Seo In-guk, VIXX, Park Yoon-ha, Park Jung-ah, Kim Gyu-sun, Kim Ye-won and Jiyul. The title track, "Falling" (니가 내려와) was released digitally on December 13, 2016.[13][14][15][16][17]

On December 17, 2016, Gugudan announced their official fan-club name, "Dear Friend" (단짝), through their V app channel. The fan-club name means that the fans and Gugudan are going to be best friends.[18]

2017–present: Act. 2 Narcissus, Gugudan 5959 and Act. 3 Chococo Factory

In early February 2017, Jellyfish Entertainment announced that Gugudan would make their first comeback since debut with their second mini album.[19] The mini album, named Act. 2 Narcissus with its title track "A Girl Like Me", was released on 27 February.[20]

On August 10, the two youngest members of the group, Kang Mina and Cho Hyeyeon, debuted as a sub-unit named "Gugudan 5959" with the single "Ice Chu".[21]

On November 8, the group returned with a single album, Act. 3 Chococo Factory, featuring title track “Chococo”.[22] The comeback only included eight members due to Soyee injuring her back and being unable to promote.
