We’re counting down the days until the BTS Meal arrives at McDonald’s! The band’s signature order – featuring a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium World Famous Fries, medium Coke, and Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces inspired by recipes from McDonald’s South Korea – will be available in Philippine restaurants on June 18, 2021. But in the meantime, we’re kicking off the fun early.  

McDonald’s is offering up yet another way to celebrate this much anticipated collab while we wait. On May 27, 7 AM PHT, McDonald’s and BTS dropped a show-stopping merch line on the Weverse Shop app. This head-to-toe collection is inspired by some of the craveable, hand-picked menu items from the BTS Meal, with dynamite threads like hoodies, purple bathrobes, socks and sandals. Whether it’s the McDonald’s fry box logo with seven fries for each BTS member, or the marriage of BTS purple with McDonald’s red and gold, these designs are the perfect representation of an iconic partnership between two fan-favorite brands. And to get it, you just have to download the Weverse Shop app and create an account!
