K-Pop sensation BTS is a well-known name in the music industry today. The 7-member band has a raging fan following across the globe. Their latest superhit track includes ‘Dynamite’, which shattered a number of records within a day of its release in 2020.

According to Variety, the meal consists of 10 pieces Chicken McNuggets, medium fries and medium coke along with Sweet Chilli and Cajun dipping sauces inspired by the McDonald’s South Korea menu. In the official announcement video, McDonald’s arranged its fries to represent each member of the BTS band. Take a look:

if you want to support bts’ mcdonalds partnership, but don’t eat meat or fast food, you could buy the meal and then provide it to the homeless, they would appreciate a meal.— emma⁷ | POLY BTS ????️???? (@hyyhaficionado) April 19, 2021
