The new McDonald’s BTS Meal (set) is a new collaboration with the famous K-Pop boyband, where the set comes with chicken nuggets, french fries, a drink, and 2 packs of “special BTS sauce”.

Some delivery riders stood for several hours just to get fans the meal, worrying authorities of another possible cluster for the country’s pandemic outbreak.

McDonald’s Indonesia urged fans to be patient as the BTS meal will be available until the next month.
