First Love is the second studio album by South Korean pianist Yiruma, released in 2001.[1]

The best known track in the album is "River Flows in You",[2] which became popular after it was associated with a different song "Bella's Lullaby" from the Twilight film.[3] The song reached No. 20 in Germany and No. 11 in Austria,[4][5] and its video received over 100 million views on YouTube.[6]

The album reached No. 3 in Billboard's Top Classical Albums in 2020 after a change in chart rules allowing catalog albums to be included in current charts.[7][6]
