Korean boy band Block B’s single “A Few Years Later,” released on Sunday at midnight, took the lead in local charts as of Monday at 10 a.m., beating BTOB’s “Remember That,” the title track of its seven-track mini album which was also released Sunday at midnight.

The mid-tempo sentimental pop number “A Few Years Later” clinched the top spots in six local charts -- Bugs, Mnet, Soribada, Olleh Music, MelOn and Genie -- out of eight music charts here.

Monkey3 and Naver Music were the exceptions, as first place on those charts went to rock singer Jang Beom-jun’s “Into the Rain” and “You Fell in Love,” respectively.

BTOB’s “Remember That” took second place in five charts -- Bugs, Mnet, Genie, Soribada and Naver Music.

“A Few Years Later” pushed rock singer Jang Beom-jun’s songs “Into the Rain” “Spring Rain” and “You Fell in Love” out of the top spots. Jang’s songs, which were released on Thursday at midnight, have dominated major charts recently, dethroning songs from the sound track of the hit drama series “Descendants of the Sun.”

BTOB's comeback was made about six months after it released single "I Mean" in October 2015. The group went on a Seoul Concert on Saturday and Sunday. Block B will hold concerts in Seoul on April 2 and 3.
