    I'm going to be honest and say I never bought one because 1. I don't have the thing you use for CDs ( english isn't my first language don't judge me ) 2. I'm broke and too young to have a job

    When I first got into kpop I bought quite a lot but now I only buy the ones that I like the whole album and I buy all twice albums. So really I only buy twice albums because it is rare that I like every song in an album. Also if I do like one song on an album I just buy that one song on iTunes.

    Mp3 players didn't really start coming out till I was in high school so you wanted to listen to music a cd player was the only way to go. Buying albums was the only way since cd burners were expensive and Napster was still new. After high school no one bought albums, not with limewire around.. And frankly I stopped after a Chinese cd I bought cause it had three songs I liked. Bought it and found out those were still the only songs I liked... Rest of the cd was slow songs.

    I do buy albums, but I only buy them when my faves have a comeback.

    I usually buy digital albums but if I have enough money I purchase the physical copy too. In all honesty, I wish I could have more albums but I have bills to pay...

    Haha is that a lot? I didn’t think it was, I follow people who buy at least 6 albums a month and have 100+ lmao. I just got a lot cheaper rent and a job raise so I have more income to spend on stuff like that lol. Might regret it later

    Lordy I lost count of how many CDs i got. All I know is my kitchen knives will need to be stored in a new place if I get one more CD-literally.

    I don't have a CD player other then my car, so I just copy from the CD and pt the songs on USB. From USB I plug them into my car and PRESTO don't have to accidentally destroy any CDs leaving them in my car.

    I don't really buy physical albums at the moment. With shipping it's bit too expensive for me at the moment (shipping is as much or more than the actual price of cd) and my cd player broke so also don't have anything to play the cds in.

    However I have like 15 kpop albums.

    usually its 1 or 2 of each version of a stan group. That did grow from just 1 per group 2-3 years ago.
    I do not buy digital if i want a song i buy the album.
    This upcoming month may get a bit large :)

    I buy albums but I can't tell you how often. Depends on when my faves have a comeback.

    I don't buy albums of every group I like, only groups that I stan - Loona, Dream Catcher, Exid, Ladies' Code, Mamamoo. Other my faves disbanded.

    In rare cases I buy album of a group that I don't really stan if I loved an album so much. I have a few albums of groups where I only liked one of two of their albums.

    Soloists: Jessica, Taeyeon (all versions), Lee Hi, Sunmi, + all Loona singles, sometimes I buy albums of IU & Hyuna & BoA.

    I have close to 60 albums. I have albums of other soloists like Lim Kim who are not active anymore.

    Can I ask.....people who buy physicals, what do you do with it? Do you guys actually play the CDs? Or do you guys just buy to collect?
