Chen Reana is a member of the group Believe! Morning Musume currently consisting of 6 members. She started her fandom of Hello! project around 2010 she said that even though she hasn't been a fan for very long she loves Hello! project with all her heart. Her fandom started with watching the anime "Shugo Chara!" which was introduced to her by her sister. By watching "Shugo Chara!" she discovered "Shugo Chara Egg" which led her to "Buono!" which eventually lead her to listening to "Berryz Koubou" and making "Special Generation" the first dance she's ever learned. She continued her fandom for "Berryz Koubou" for a long time without listening to Morning Musume, S/mileage, C-ute and any other unit. Later on she thought of taking her fandom to the next level and started listening to S/mileage and C-ute. The last main unit she started listening to was Morning Musume. Although she learnt about C-ute, S/mileage and Berryz Koubou earlier she said so that Morning Musume was her all time favorite with S/mileage coming second.

- Hello! Project Groups:
Around the beginning of June (which was around the 2nd week of her 5th Grade) she got side bangs.
During summer, she got her hair cut to be like Tanaka Reina's but later on told her mom she didn't like how it looked on her and got full straight bangs instead.
July 10, Reana was instructed to once again bring them so that they can undergo a private audition. They both passed and was later announced to be a new unit under Hello! Project "Chiisana".
September 3, She injured her left foot in the middle of performing SPECIAL Dance Marathon, yet still continued dancing without telling anyone she stated:
"It just started to ache out of no where it surprised me. I tried my best to keep a smiling face. Even though I know I should have told someone during the breaks Im very Sorry I didn't. I know it would be unhealthy for me to continue performing in these last 2 days but please let me. I really want to continue. I promise I won't push myself and I would tell the staff if I can't take the pain anymore. Please let me continue performing."
September 7, Her foot had healed. It was said a "miracle" that her condition didn't get worse even after continuously performing SPECIAL Dance Marathon.
September 18, She named it as her Unluckiest birthday due to the fact she started to get low scores and kept getting hurt and being blamed.
October 5, While trying to reach for something on her shelf, a pile of hardbound books fell on her left foot. Injuring her left foot once again. This time it was considerably lucky because Kristen's birthday event had already finished and they aren't scheduled to learn any new dance until S/mileage releases "Samui Ne". She is currently resting.
October 10, She has recovered and started dancing and practicing dances
October 25, She was called out during a dance lesson to be interviewed about how Mandi is doing
"So we called you out here in the middle of the lesson, why do you think?"
"Do you know about what?"
"From the looks of it...Mandi?"
"Yes, how is she doing?"
"She actually has been attending school, she seems well.....enough.....to...erm...learn and perform again"
"Are you sure?"
"She hasn't really been talking to me much"
"So how did you know that she seems well enough to join once again as the lead?"
"Well, 23, 24 and today was our sports festival...How did I know she was fine enough? She attended all 3 days, her game was today, surely we didn't win but she seemed to be active"
"The 7th Graders venue for the Sports Fest is at the 5th floor of a seperate building. There are 20 or more steps just to get to the bottom floor of the Grade School building and 118 or more to get to the 5th floor, all students have to climb up and down about 2 times each day, everyone was tired but she was going up 2 steps at a time"
"Didn't you state she always climbs 2 steps at a time?"
"She does.....So do I.....Fine, I admit I was more active....I was running up and down 2 steps at a time, she was walking 2 steps at a time even though shes just holding a jump rope and I was holding 3 bags....But still"
"I guess you're right, should we bring her back in?"
"Yes, definitely its hard for Karina to take up all the lines and the dance formations are harder to follow."
"Thank you, I'm sure you can catch up with the lesson, your quick at learning dances anyways"
"Ahaha, Glad to help!"
