Earlier today, McDonald’s announced a new partnership with K-pop icons, BTS.

Kicking off on May 26 in the U.S., customers can enjoy the BTS Meal, which will include a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, a medium Coke, and for the first time in the U.S., Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces inspired by popular recipes from McDonald’s South Korea.

In addition to new sauces stateside, the BTS collab is truly special as it’ll be the first McDonald’s celebrity signature order available internationally. With nearly 50 countries anticipating the release, the Golden Arches has unveiled plans to make the meal available on different dates through June. See the complete list of participating countries and availability below.

With over 25 million monthly Spotify listeners and a devoted “Army” fanbase, many online have already reacted to today’s news. See a few of the reactions below.

U.S. customers will be able to order the BTS Meal in-restaurant through contactless mobile order and pay in the McDonald’s App, at the Drive-Thru, or via McDelivery. So mark your calendars for May 26, and be sure to keep an eye out on McDonald’s social channels (@mcdonalds) for regular updates on the collab, including even more surprises in the coming weeks!
