  • Alandria Penn

    I miss Alex

  • bambam’s_wife

    I agree. I’m still dumbfounded as to why they kicked her from the group.

  • Alandria Penn

    She left from the group because she was getting mistreated

  • bambam’s_wife

    Yeh, but it was almost as if she was kicked and found out about it later .-.

  • Kaycee

    Pretty sure Hyeme is the Visual member. Also, has it been confirmed Hyeme is the Main Vocal? I thought for sure it would be Zi.U

  • Khumaira Zhadyra

    Alex’s full name is Alexandra Reid VARLEY

  • SAAY

    Ttabo has left the group too.

  • __taechuu__

    Ttabo shared that her ideal type is BTS’s Jungkook during an interview.

  • SAAY

    Positions of former members except Yijo and Sharon (who didn’t debut with them):

    Riko – Leader, Lead Vocal
    Joy – Vocal, Visual, Lead Dancer
    Yina – Vocal, Lead Dancer
    Jooyi – Main Vocal, Lead Rapper
    Di – Vocal, Main Rapper, Main Dancer
    T-ae – Lead Vocal, Main Dancer
    Xia – Lead Vocal, Lead Dancer
    Yumin – Vocal, Visual
    Alex – Leader, Main Rapper

    *Alex can’t be credited as a vocalist for RaNia since she never actually sang on a song, she just rapped on their stuff*

    I’m not sure what Yijo and Sharon’s positions are since they never really debuted with RaNia and I don’t think they were actual members etc.

  • orangecloud

    Sorry but that group became a joke as sook as all the original members departed

  • kpopper97_ _

    On Zi.U’s instagram bio it says that her birthday is february 24.

  • Mia

    yumin has a child

  • Lisa

    Ttabo left the group, I heard rumors Zi.U left as well.

  • MeLikey

    Zi.u left Rania

  • Re In

    Ttabo left in early 2019. Then, JiYu and Namfon already left the group and parted ways to them… So the current members are JiEun and HyeMe.
