Fast food giant, McDonald’s, recently created a buzz on the internet as it hinted at a possible comeback of the BTS meal, which it introduced back in 2021.

The multinational food corporation took to social media to tease fans with a cryptic message. Although it did not directly hint at a new collaboration with the K-pop group, it suggested that McDonald's was taking fan suggestions into consideration.

McDonald’s open-ended question on Twitter gave netizens a chance to comment their suggestions about the specific items they would like to bring back to the menu. The tweet read,

Last summer, K-pop fans, especially ARMY, went wild with excitement when McDonald’s announced a collaboration with the global K-pop sensation to create an exclusive BTS meal.

Enlisting the meal as part of the food giant’s Famous Orders initiative, the limited-edition meal was made available in 50 different regions and was sold out within seconds.

Although the packaging of the scrumptious meal varied by location, each order consisted of a medium Coca-Cola drink, medium fries, and Chicken McNuggets with Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces.

The McDonald’s YouTube video commercial which features the group members RM, Jin, J-Hope, Jimin, SUGA, V, and Jungkook has exceeded 17 million views from the time of posting.

The commercial shows each member introducing the various items with Dynamite playing in the background. It ends with group member V taking a bite of a crispy Chicken McNugget.

The demand for the meal was so intense in 2021 that it caused several restaurants worldwide to shut down. Fans collected the meal’s purple packaging along with the official HYBE merchandise clothing, including T-shirts, sweatshirts, socks, and more.


Meanwhile, McDonald’s also hyped the group’s Permission To Dance On Stage concert in Las Vegas and brought back collaboration stickers and merchandise during the group’s four-day-long concert in April.

The septet is also set to drop their new album on June 10, 2022. After McDonald’s tweet, many netizens have pointed out that there could not be a better time to bring back the exclusive meal.
