Sriya from Jharsuguda was chosen to replace Hyeme in the Seoul training programme in December 2020. Sriya had to undergo numerous levels of training in a variety of areas before she could join the group. This included intensive vocal training, rapping, dance choreographies, musical instrument playing, language acquisition, and more personal training. She was picked as one of 22 contestants after the second round of auditions. She advanced to the next round by placing in the top four. Sriya will now receive extra training, this time for the release of the following album, now that she has been chosen.
Initially, the organization was looking for just one additional member. The group, however, declared on Instagram that Sriya and Gabriel were the group’s fifth and sixth members.
