Biography

Yonamine Rui was born on August 16, 1995, in Okinawa, Japan. He is part Filipino, Hispanic, American, Japanese and British according to his former (pre-debut) and new Instagram profile. He has a younger brother.

Since his parents listened to blues and disco music, he had been surrounded by music ever since he can remember. Additionally, his uncle was a dancer too. This influenced him and he became interested in dancing when he was in his first year of junior high school.[1]

Before that, he was a baseball player from the 3rd grade of elementary school to the 1st grade of junior high school. After he watched the performance of Japanese Pop-group DA PUMP at a charity event in his hometown, his interest in dancing sparked even further.[1]

Ultimately, Yonamine started dancing when he was in junior high school and participated in the dance club of his high school later on.

After attending EXPG Okinawa for some time, he participated in the EXILE PERFORMER BATTLE AUDITION at the age of 18 to test his abilities and was able to remain as a finalist. At that time, he had already been dancing for about 5 years. Even though he wasn't able to be finish as a winner, he was selected to become a candidate for the upcoming EXILE TRIBE group THE RAMPAGE.

After completing the group's first musha shugyo, Yonamine went from being a candidate to an official member and made his major debut with THE RAMPAGE on January 25, 2017, with the single "Lightning".
