K-Pop Fan Discovers Photocard Included In American Band’s Album

It’s from 2005!

One thing that makes K-Pop albums stand out from others is its inclusions. When we purchase from artists of other genres, we can still expect to receive a CD, but it seldom comes with anything more than its protective case or a mini booklet. Netizens often joke that Western artists might soon add more inclusions, such as photocards, to capitalize off the success of K-Pop. Yet, some artists have included photocards even before it was on trend in K-Pop!

Nikki (@kang.yonghyun on TikTok) thrifted a CD for 99 cents from a local record store chain. She has collected albums from artists she enjoyed throughout her childhood.

Her latest addition to the collection is a copy of Greetings from Imrie House, debut studio album by American rock band the Click Five, released in 2005. It looked like an average jewel case, usually only containing a CD and a small booklet.

Nikki is used to the booklet containing lyrics, artist statements, and just a few photos. Yet, when she pulled out the booklet this time, she discovered something else. She found what appeared to be a collectible photocard or trading card of lead guitarist Joe Guese.

The video went viral with 83.7K views at the time of writing. Watch it below.
