BTS have sold over 1.2 million McDonald‘s meals in Korea.
McDonald’s officially released the ‘BTS Meal’ on May 27 in South Korea, and since then, they’ve sold over 1.2 million orders of the meal in the country alone. As fans know, the meal includes a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets order, medium French fries, and a medium drink along with sweet chili and cajun dipping sauces.
From May 27 to June 21, Chicken McNuggets sales in South Korea went up 250%. A representative from the fast food empire said, “Ever since the launch of the ‘BTS Meal,’ customers of all ages and genders have been enjoying it, and as a result, we’ve recorded a surprising number of sales.”
According to Filipino media outlet ABS-CBN, almost 1 million of the McDonald’s-BTS collaboration meals have been sold in the Philippines. Though sales figures for the United States have yet to be released, ‘Business Insider‘ revealed there was a 12% jump in customers within a week of the ‘BTS Meal’ launch.
The ‘BTS Meal’ promotion is set to come to an end on June 30 in South Korea.
