From 2016 to 2019, Gu was married to actor Ahn Jae Hyun, her co-star in the series "Blood". They dated since April 2015 and officially registered their marriage at the Gangnam district office on May 20, 2016, and married on May 21, 2016. They announced that instead of holding a wedding party, they would donate the money to the pediatric ward of Severance Hospital. The pair appeared in the reality show Newlywed Diary which showcased their married life.

On September 1, 2019, she revealed in an Instagram post that she would be taking a break from the entertainment industry to resume college.

On September 9, 2019, he submitted an application to the Seoul Family Court for divorce against her, and it was delivered to her on September 18, 2019.

She then signed under YG Entertainment. In June 2019, she signed with HB Entertainment, the same agency as her ex-husband Ahn Jae-hyun. Her contract with HB Entertainment was terminated on April 29, 2020, after it was initiated for her.

On July 23, 2020, she signed with Mimi Entertainment. On May 17, 2021, it was reported that she would be acting, directing, and writing the film “Dark Yellow”, which is being produced in partnership with Wadiz. She has been active as a director since 2009, making both short films and feature-length films that have been screened at various film festivals. She has her own production company, Ku Hye Sun Film, which will also produce “Dark Yellow.”

On November 8, 2021, she signed with IOK Company.

On June 18, 2023, it was announced that she had lost the lawsuit she filed against her former agency HB Entertainment for damages in compensation for profits generated from YouTube videos.
