But should we really be putting our photocards in phone cases?

A video recently went viral on TikTok, showcasing the potential dangers.

A K-Pop fan ( on TikTok) shared a video of her friend trying to remove her photocard of TXT‘s Beomgyu from a phonecase. Instead, it ripped in half as the back completely came off, but Beomgyu was stuck to the case.

The friend tried to get the rest of the photocard off the case. In doing so, Beomgyu got completely scratched.

The video went viral with 11.3K views at the time of writing.
