With this partnership, the GRAMMY-nominated 'Dynamite' hitmakers have joined the growing list of musicians who have launched special McDonald's set meals. In 2020, American rapper Travis Scott teamed up with McDonald's to launch a signature meal as well as an exclusive merchandise line, which included t-shirts, hoodies, and tote bags. Not long later, Colombian rapper J Balvin followed suit, but his planned merchandise line was eventually scrapped due to production challenges.


Following the announcement of the BTS meal, fans took to social media to express their excitement.

Some even had suggestions on how the meal should look.
