K-Pop A-Z Review: EXO – December, 2014 (The Winter’s Tale)

One song. Every day. Alphabetical order.

December, 2014 (The Winter’s Tale) (from Exology Chapter 1: The Lost Planet – 2014)

Released as a special winter track on the group’s first concert album, December, 2014 is an easy EXO song to overlook. It’s a standard r&b ballad, driven by muted keys and synth strings. While the track’s sentimental nature will likely give it a special place in many fans’ hearts, I’ve always found the melody to be pretty forgettable. EXO have quite a few of these winter-themed tracks in their arsenal, and nothing about December really makes it superior to the others. At the very least, it’s another fine showcase for the group’s always-impressive vocalists.
