2015–2017: BP RaNia

On November 3, 2015, it was announced that she would be featured in RaNia's "Demonstrate" music video, with the possibility of her becoming a member of the girl group.[1] Later, on November 4, DR Music confirmed Alex as a new member.[2]

In mid-2016, the agency announced that they were working on a sub-unit, consisted of Alex and her fellow-member Hyemi. The sub-unit never debuted, however, they sang the track "No Dab", featured in the groups' fifth mini album Refresh 7th.

On August 15, 2016, she announced that she became the group's new leader.[citation needed]

On August 12, 2017, RaNia released their fifth mini album Refresh 7th and the promotions for the album became controversial after fans noticed that Alex had little to no lines, and that she spent the majority of performances standing off to the side while the other girls danced and sang.[3] Some days later, on August 19, DR Media announced her departure from the group.[4]

Following her departure, she took to Twitter and criticized the company in regards to how she was treated and her departure, saying "People think they can push you around, take advantage of you, manipulate you, violate you then throw you in the trash and walk. Dead wrong".[5]

On December 9, 2017, she announced the upcoming release of "East West", which was intended for the Hex sub-unit (Hyemi & Alex). The single was released on March 19, 2018.
