Since the historical discovery of the first exoplanet back in 1995 [6], the origin of close-in giant planets has been one of the most challenging puzzles in the exoplanetary science. Close-in giant planets (hot Jupiters) are now believed to have formed beyond the “snow line”, where there are abundant dusts and ice to make up planets.
