We just saw how Malaysians got crazy over the BTS meal by McDonalds. McDonald’s launched its latest meal in partnership with South Korean Boyband BTS in Malaysia, making it the first country in the world to serve BTS meals. The BTS themed food packaging has been so in demand that people are reselling the empty boxes, cups, sauces and paper bags for triple the price and the meal for as high as RM200 on various social media platforms. Fans are even washing, drying and framing the packages of this meal.
Korea is world-renowned for their K-Pop, K-Drama and K-Beauty, and being the global sensation that it is, it has a massive and loyal fan-base in Malaysia.
