Why are K-pop idols’ albums being dumped on streets?

This isn't the first instance where a K-pop album has been treated disrespectfully. Just a few days ago, SEVENTEEN's latest album, "17 IS RIGHT HERE," was discarded on the streets of Japan with signs stating, “Feel free to take any you want.” Since then, similar incidents have been reported online for albums of various other groups. Many fans believe that people bought these albums in large quantities mainly because of the “photocards” and “codes” that could be used to resell the album. Some photos show that the albums are not even in their plastic packaging, meaning the photocards have already been removed. This explains the large purchases.
