K-pop fans discuss if they get disappointed if they pull a photo card of a less popular idol member


In the world of K-pop, there are various things fans can do that allow them to enjoy the culture to the fullest. One of these things K-pop fans get into is collecting the photo cards of their favorite members or of all the members of their favorite group.

K-pop artists usually include a special photo card of a random member with every album. Therefore, there are many K-pop fans who purchase multiple copies of these albums to collect the photo cards of their favorite members. Of course, it's not possible to draw the exact photo card of your choice, so there is a whole community of fans who trade these photo cards.

Recently, one netizen started an online discussion about whether they get disappointed if they pull a photo card of a less popular member from a particular K-pop group. The netizen who started the discussion wrote, "Do you guys get disappointed if you pull a photo card of a less popular member? I do because of the trading."

Other K-pop fans who collect photo cards wrote, "I feel the same because you can't even trade them or sell them," "I don't like it at all," "My head hurts when I think about trading it," "I get a headache when I think about having to trade the photo card (of a less popular member) with my bias who is a popular member," "It doesn't even sell when I post it for a dollar," "I can't trade them or sell them so I get disappointed," and "I cried because I kept getting the less popular member when I bought a bunch of albums."

On the other hand, fans who are out to collect all the photo cards wrote, "I don't mind because my objective is to collect the photo cards of all the members," "I'm just a fan of the entire group so I don't mind," "I never thought about this, I just buy the photo cards of my favorite member rather than buying albums to get," "I don't mind as long as it's not a duplicate photo card," "I don't really think about which member is more popular or not, I don't trade cards either, lol," and "I don't like duplicates more."

I wouldn´t buy an album of a groups if I don´t like all the members, if I really wanted a pc I would buy it from ebay or something.

For me, I feel like, since I don't buy albums with the intention to collect ALL member photocards or with the intention to trade, I'm generally not disappointed which whatever card I get and just accept my fate. The only time its disappointing is when I pull a duplicate.
