Thanks to the lyrics like “Hope all your wishes come true” and “Everything will go as you wish,” “As You Wish” has given Koreans a hopeful and optimistic start to 2024.

MelOn saw a spike in the streaming of the song within the first five minutes of January 1, 2024.

Ever since its release in 2019, “As You Wish” has topped music charts on January 1 for the past five consecutive years. For 2024, WJSN thanked the listeners once again via a statement shared by STARSHIP Entertainment.

Thank you all for kicking off 2024 with ‘As You Wish.’ We hope that, in the new year, you get everything you dream of, as you wish!

It’s an honor to be able to ring in the new year with everyone through our song, ‘As You Wish,’ every year. WJSN looks forward to 2024, too—hopefully filled with a lot of opportunities to share our positive energy with everyone.

Alongside “As You Wish” were NCT Dream’s “Hello Future” and Lim Young Woong’s “Do Or Die.” You can listen to all three below as you start off your 2024.
