McDonald’s “BTS Meal” Thailand

Over the past couple months, fans of the world famous K-pop band, BTS – also known as ARMYs – in Thailand have had to watch fellow fans around the world enjoy their McDonald’s BTS Meal with a slight tinge jealousy.

Some enthusiasts – like this one – even asked their friends abroad to mail over a BTS-themed McNugget box.

Well, Thai ARMYs, the wait is over.

McDonalds Thailand announced that the “BTS Meal” will be available across Thailand from 16th July 2021 to 18th August 2021.

BTS fans in Thailand were obviously over the moon to hear that the fast-food chain would be releasing the collab.

After all, ARMYs in Thailand are known to pool their money and buy ad space to place pictures of the band at – conveniently named – BTS Skytrain stations and even Tuk-Tuks.

Stay safe while getting your “BTS Meal”

We know, we know, ARMYs. You’ve spent the past months watching people enjoying their BTS-themed McDonald’s meals while pretending not to be jealous, so this announcement practically makes you want to run over to the nearest outlet.

However, it’s important to note that while the K-pop bands’ ballads may be worthy of a Magic Shop, their McDonald’s meals can’t guarantee protection from Covid-19.

So, when heading over to purchase your long-awaited “BTS Meal”, be sure to wear your mask and practice social distancing. That way, you’ll be in tip-top health for the next tour.
