If these Kpop girl groups’ main rappers are absent, who will be the potential substitution?

Let’s find out more about the potential rappers in these Kpop girl groups.

Besides singing, dancing, rapping is an indispensable part of K-pop. Each group will have a member in charge of the main rapper position. However, there are other members who can take this position as well if the main rapper is somehow absent.

If the main rapper is absent, Kpop groups can still easily find a replacement.
