On June 26, 2020, RaNia’s Hyemi announced through her group’s SNS that she was the only member left, so it would be strange to release an album under the name RaNia, arguing that due to this the group would start fresh under the name B.S. (BLACKSWAN) and that they would soon be releasing a new album, with new members.

On July 1, Youngheun posted a letter to her Instagram thanking fans for their continued support and good news. She revealed she was going to be a part of B.S. alongside Hyemi and several new members. 

On July 3, Lisa (Larissa) posted a letter also stating that she will be part of the group under the stage name Leia.

On July 7, the group was appointed as ambassadors of Pyeongchang-gun, alongside K-TIGERS ZERO, to promote the county. The news also revealed two new members.

On September 16, the group revealed that they were expected to debut in early 2020, but it had been postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the difficulties that came with it. 

On September 25, an article on Bunja Dongne Times revealed that the group would be debuting in October 2020, with the music video already filmed.

On September 30, 2021, it was announced that they would release their first single album “Close to Me” on October 14, which would be their long-awaited comeback after their hiatus.

On October 9, it was announced via the group’s social medias that they would be debuting on October 16 with their first full-length album Goodbye RANIA.

On November 9, media outlet Dispatch reported that member Hyemi was accused of fraud after allegedly scamming an unidentifed male office worker out of 50 million KRW ($45,000 USD) that was lent to pay for her rent, living expenses and credit card bills. The following day, DR Music announced they would be filing a counter lawsuit against the individual. 

On November 7 the agency revealed that Hyemi’s exclusive contract had ended but will still legally represent her until the issue is resolved. At the same time, it was announced that BLACKSWAN would go on a temporary hiatus.
