McDonald’s has teamed up with popular K-pop group ‘BTS’ on a new celebrity meal.

McDonald’s will launch the BTS Meal starting next month from 26th May in the US and 11 other countries. The meal will be offered in nearly 50 countries during May and June.

The chain had successfully launched similar limited-edition celebrity meals featuring musicians Travis Scott and J Balvin.

The meal will include a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, a medium Coke, and, for the first time in the US Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces. According to McDonald’s, the sauces are inspired by popular recipes from its restaurants in South Korea, where the boy band is from.
