The meal includes a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, a medium Coca-Cola and special Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces.

The dipping sauces will be available in the United States for the first time as part of the meal as McDonald's said they are inspired by popular recipes from its restaurants in South Korea, where the boy band hails from.

"The band has great memories with McDonald's," Big Hit Music, BTS's record label said. "We're excited about this collaboration and can't wait to share the BTS Meal with the world."

Customers in the United States will be able to order the meal in-restaurant, through contactless mobile order via the McDonald's App, at the drive-thru or through delivery.
