K-Pop Photocards: A Fan's Perspective

7:39 AM

As a Kpop fan and a collector of photocards, I have noticed that in recent days, since the airing of an episode of KMJS about KPop merch, there has been a surge of media attention on our beloved hobby. From news articles to social media posts, it seems that everyone has something to say about Kpop photocards. Unfortunately, not all of the attention has been positive, and there seems to be a misunderstanding about what it is we are actually doing and why we are doing it.

Let me start by explaining what Kpop photocards are. For those of you who are not familiar, photocards are small, collectible cards that often come packaged with Kpop albums or merchandise. They feature pictures of our favorite Kpop idols and are a way for fans to connect with their favorite artists.

Now, let's address the elephant in the room. Yes, some Kpop photocards can be expensive. There are rare cards that can sell for hundreds or even thousands of pesos, and that can seem absurd to outsiders who don't understand the value of these items. But it's important to note that not all photocards are expensive, and many fans collect them simply because they love their bias (favorite idol) and want to have a piece of memorabilia to cherish.

Furthermore, the act of collecting photocards is about more than just the cards themselves. It's a way for fans to feel closer to their idols, to show support for their music and their careers, and to connect with a community of like-minded individuals who share their passion. It's a way for us to express our love and appreciation for the art that our idols create and the impact they have on our lives.

Unfortunately, there have been some misconceptions about our hobby that have caused people to view us in a negative light. Some have accused us of being materialistic or shallow, and have suggested that we are wasting our money on frivolous items. But the truth is that collecting Kpop photocards is no different from collecting any other type of memorabilia, whether it be sports cards, pokemon cards, stamps, or comic books. It's a way for us to indulge in our hobbies and passions, and to have something to treasure and cherish for years to come.

So, I would like to say that Kpop photocards are not just pieces of paper with pictures on them. They are tokens of love and appreciation, and a way for fans to connect with our idols and each other. We are not obsessed or materialistic, but rather passionate and dedicated fans who love and support our bias in any way we can.

I hope that this blog has shed some light on our hobby and helped to dispel any misconceptions that may exist.
