One of the most exciting parts of opening a K-Pop album is seeing which photocard you’ll receive. Some are definitely more coveted than others, and there are some really nice ones out there! However, several idols have trolled their fans by making bizarre photocards as well, which is hilarious to see. Here are 13 of the strangest photocards that have had fans bewildered when they were unboxed.
1. Irene (Red Velvet)
In Red Velvet’s The ReVe Festival: Day 2 album, fans had a chance to receive this photocard! It’s not obvious at first glance, but this shadow belongs to Irene. Would you be excited or just confused to pull this card?
2. D.O. (EXO)
D.O. was notorious for pulling the same pose — a thumbs up with a small smile — for photocards in the past, so one time he decided to go extra and gift fans with this close-up of his forehead! It’s certainly a different look for him.
3. Jason Derulo??
In NCT 127‘s Let’s Shut Up & Dance single album, fans had the possibility of pulling a photocard of Jason Derulo, who collaborated with them on the project! How would you feel about getting his card?
4. Mingi (ATEEZ)
For ATEEZ’s anniversary album, Mingi included this adorable baby picture of himself buried in the sand. Even back then, he had his characteristic big, sweet smile!
5. Tzuyu (TWICE)
In TWICE’s What Is Love album, Tzuyu herself was surprised to see that her beard selfie ended up as one of the possible photocards to receive! She still looks stunning even with the fake facial hair.
6. Lee Soo Man??
There have been a couple instances in NCT 127’s and EXO’s albums that fans were shocked to receive a photocard of SM Entertainment‘s CEO. It would be pretty surprising to pull his card, for sure!
7. RM (BTS)
This isn’t as strange of a photocard, but it is still pretty funny! RM took this candid photo for BTS’s Love Yourself: Her album, and a lot of fans find it very endearing, if a little strange.

For the SHINee’s 1 of 1 album, instead of releasing photocards, the group went all-out with the 90s concept and had their photos in the form of pogs! They all (except Taemin) even included baby pictures within their photos as well.
9. Sehun (EXO)
Sehun wasn’t afraid to show a little behind-the-scenes of his beauty routine in this photocard, which featured him wearing a nose mask! He must take his skincare seriously.
10. Momo (TWICE)
This isn’t the most flattering picture of Momo looking terrified, for some reason, at her reflection, but it was still somehow included in one of TWICE’s albums! She still looks super pretty despite the petrified look on her face. What was she so scared of??
11. Taeil (NCT)
Taeil looks normal enough in this NCT photocard, but for some reason, Yuta ended up photobombing the image in the background while taking a selfie! You could probably consider this a two-members-in-one photocard, though, which could be a good thing.
12. Sehun (EXO) again
Sehun apparently took some inspiration from D.O.’s forehead photocard, and decided to make a similar one for himself! It would be hilarious to have a whole line of EXO forehead photocards someday.
13. Park Bom (former 2NE1)
This photo seemed to have caught Park Bom mid-yawn, or mid-talking, or something, based on the look on her face! It’s hilarious and cute that she was fine with having such a goofy photocard available in 2NE1’s past album.
