EXO's 'First Snow' tops music charts 10 years after release
EXO's winter song 'First Snow' once again climbed to the top of the music charts for the first time in 10 years.

As of December 19, 2023, 10 years after its release in December 2013, EXO's 'First Snow' not only ranked 1st in Melon's TOP 100 and daily charts, but also ranked 1st on Bugs' real-time chart, 2nd on Flo, and 6th on Genie. It rose to the top of major music charts.

In particular, 'First Snow' has established itself as a 'must-have winter song' that comes to mind every year when the first snow falls, with its unique vague and cozy atmosphere. This year, the so-called 'First Snow Challenge' has even appeared, with simple movements added to the fast-playing chorus. As it gains popularity mainly through short-form platforms, it is also making a 'reverse run' on the music charts with a frightening momentum.

Leader Suho said, “We topped the charts with ‘First Snow’ for the first time in 10 years, so we celebrated with the members. “Through the challenge, many people became interested in the song and when the rankings rose, we were surprised at first, but now all the members are enjoying it,” he said. “It’s all thanks to EXO-L.” I am always grateful and love you. “I hope you have a warm year-end while listening to ‘First Snow,’ and I will come back with better music and stages next year.”

In addition, 'First Snow' is a song included in EXO's winter special album 'Miracles in December'. On a winter day when the first snow falls, 'First Snow' is a song about wanting to turn back the time of the past year while remembering the first love you left a year ago. It is an acoustic pop song with lyrics.

Meanwhile, EXO became a million-seller for the 7th time in total with its 7th full-length album 'EXIST', released in July this year.
