SHINee is about to make their much-anticipated comeback after 2 and a half years, and as such, they’ve released the details behind the albums that fans can reserve online.
The new album is called “Don’t Call Me”, and fans get to enjoy the aspect of picking the package that contains the fan goods they want.
The fan goods include items such as photo books, posters, and postcards, but one item has younger fans feeling a major generation gap.
The item in question is a public payphone card, and one young fan even took to the internet with much confusion.
What’s a phone card?
Ever since mobile phones became common amongst the public, public payphone cards gradually dissipated in Korea as well as the rest of the world.
But back when payphones were often used, teenagers enjoyed collecting payphone cards showcasing photos of their favorite idols.
While this is no longer a thing, SHINee paid a tribute to the good old days, and we’re all feeling a major generation gap.
SHINee’s new album is set to be released on February 22.
