Following the news, BTS’s label Big Hit entertainment, now changed to HYBE also confirmed the collaboration.

“The band has great memories with McDonald’s. We’re excited about this collaboration and can’t wait to share the BTS Meal with the world”


Pakistani ARMYs React

As soon as the announcement was made, Pakistani ARMYs were disheartened to discover that the meal won’t be available in Pakistan. And so, they decided to trend a hashtag to request the food moguls to add Pakistan to the list of 50 countries where the BTS meal will be available.

A new meme was born.


The food chain had successfully launched similar limited-edition celebrity meals featuring musicians Travis Scott and J Balvin last year. According to Forbes, Travis Scot earned at least $20 million from the collaboration and it was only available in the US.

Considering the fact that BTS has such supportive fans and that the meal is available nearly worldwide, the collaboration may stand out as the most lucrative deal for both BTS and McDonald’s.
