Hyunjoo (현주) is a South Korean singer and former member of the girl group APRIL.
She went on hiatus in May 2016 due to health issues and ultimately left the group on October 29, 2016 to pursue an acting career.
In 2017, she came back to music as a contestant in survival show The Unit. She placed 5th and became a member of UNI.T.
On October 12, 2018, Uni.T disbanded after five months of promoting. Hyunjoo subsequently continued as an actress and returned to her agency.
On February 28, 2021, a post was made to an online forum by someone claiming to be former member Hyunjoo's brother. In the post, he claimed that Hyunjoo's departure from the group had not been because she wanted to study acting, but because she had been forced out due to being severely bullied by the other members, at one point even attempting suicide. DSP Media has denied that any bullying took place, and announced they would be pursuing legal action against Hyunjoo and her family. As a result, the group has faced heavy backlash, up to and including having members removed from endorsement deals and acting roles. HyunJoo then posted a statement on her personal instagram on the 18th of April, 2021 backing the claims made by the two netizens which had made the accusations. She also stated that the label, DSP Media, was not allowing her to terminate her exclusive contract with them.
