During the press conference for their first mini-album 'Act.1 The Little Mermaid' on June 28, Gugudan talked about their group name.
Hana explained, "It means the troupe that gathered nine girls with nine charms. It means that we will reinterpret productions of various genres like fairytales, movies, or plays in a style unique to us and try to perform them."
Regarding how they decided on the name, she said, "We had a contest, and Gugudan was one of the candidates. The chief liked Gugudan and decided on that despite the other employees' opposition."
Mina added, "Honestly, when we first heard that, we were completely taken by surprise, but after saying it, the inner meaning was really nice."
