2 things come to mind, could be just the low beam fuse for the drivers side, It is in the under hood fuse box,

It is a 15 amp fuse marked H/LP LO LS, I have attatched a diagram and it is shown at lower right in the picture, You also have a relay marked H/LP LO LS relay, Could be the relay but doubt it, If fuse does not work by swapping it, do not just lookk at it, swap with a nearby fuse for testing then? the plug at the light could be bad, I lean to the fuse,Here is the diagram

Hyundai Mechanic: Randall C, ASE Master Tech replied 11 months ago

change the fuse, do not just look at it,I also mentioned the relay , you can swap it with a similar one near it for test, It sgoing to be the fuse or relay or plug

Replaced the fuse with "spare" 15A fuse. Also switched fuse from LO RH; took out fuse and saw right low beam go off, switched fuse from LH LO to RH LO and Right Low beam back on so fuse is working. Next, I switched Relay. Same idea, unplugged RH LO relay and saw right low bean go off, switched with LH Relay and Right low beam back on, but LH LO still not on. So, I've eliminated bulb, fuse and relay as the problem. Next must be the light bulb connector perhaps? Corroded?
Hyundai Mechanic: Randall C, ASE Master Tech replied 11 months ago

basically? I doubt wiring problem so yes, a connection problem at the plug, You may not even be able to see or detect that,I do not know all but parts stores sell plugs just for this wheras you only splice in new plug, You cut old off and take to parts store to match it
