The staff of McDonald's Philippines was revealed to have been given special instructions when it came to the packaging. According to the managing director, they were also instructed not to fold the "BTS Meal" paper bag but preserve it, as it is known that ARMY - BTS' fandom - would like to add it to their collection of BTS merchandise.
BTS is known to boost sales of numerous brands they collaborate with, so it is no surprise that McDonald's Philippines also saw immense success. Previously, it was reported that McDonald's in South Korea had surpassed 1.2 million "BTS Meal" units sold.
