This female idol debuted her dancing skills in a flash, but finds success as an actress after the group broke up
Former Gugudan member Jo Aram shows her talent through her dramatic performances.
Jo Aram, who made her debut as Hyeyeon in the girl group Gugudan in 2016, was selected for her debut by her agency Jellyfish Entertainment after only 11 months as a trainee thanks to her outstanding dancing skills.
Despite the fact that other idols usually spend 5-6 years as trainees, Jo Aram lightning-fast debuted in less than a year and took on the role of sub-singer.
While active in Gugudan, Jo Aram appeared with her castmates on the variety show Weekly Idol and received significant publicity when they attempted to cover a GFRIEND song.
In addition, Jo Aram showed off her impeccable dancing skills while performing “PICK ME.” She danced alongside Gugudan members Sejeong Nayoung and Mina, who starred in the first season of Mnet’s survival show Produce 101, but showed no awkwardness. She also received praise for her solo dance covers on BTS’s “I NEED U” and EXO’s “Growl.”
She was a member with excellent dancing skills enough to teach her colleague Sejeong, who placed second on Produce 101, how to dance before appearing in the dance competition variety show Boom Shakalaka, which aired during the Chuseok holiday .
However, in May 2018, about 2 years after her debut, it was announced that she would be ceasing her activities due to health reasons.
5 months later, with the news that she was ceasing her activities with Gugudan to focus on her studies and restoring her health, she left the team, saddening fans.
In 2022, it was reported that Hyeyeon would begin her acting career under her new stage name, Jo A Ram. Shortly thereafter, she appeared as “Al Ba,” a part-time employee with 7 years of experience, in the drama The Killer’s Shopping List.
She recently appeared as “Jeon So Ra” in the new drama Doctor Cha. Jeon So Ra is Jung Min’s (Song Ji Ho) girlfriend, who is a third-year surgeon.
