Korean news reporters found out why idol fans in Korea have been buying multiple copies of the same albums.
Some fans, mostly middle and high school students, had even purchased up to 50 copies of the same album, amounting to a total of ₩800,000 KRW (approximately $714 USD).
Fans explained that they purchased multiple copies for various reasons. For example, some groups released the same album with different covers, and fans felt the need to purchase all of them.
Another reason why fans buy multiple copies is so that they can be entered into the raffle system for their favorite groups fan signing events.
