“We will apply an open and close system for orders of the BTS Meal to avoid converging crowds that violate health protocols,” said McDonald’s Indonesia Associate Director of Communications Sutji Lantyka said in a written statement.

“We would also like to remind our customers that the BTS Meal is not sold for one day, but for a month. So there is no need to be concerned that it will sell out.”

The BTS meal consists of a meal set made up of a drink, fries and Chicken Nuggets with two sauces, namely Cajun flavor and sweet chili sauce.

The band has launched the BTS Meal in 49 countries, including Indonesia since last May, to the online generated anticipation of its ARMY fan club in their respective countries.

McDonald's have been dogged by controversy for drawing crowds despite health protocols since the Covid-19 pandemic started in 2020.

Last year, the fast food franchise came under fire for attracting crowds that saw off the closing of its first ever outlet in Indonesia at Jakarta's Sarinah Department store.
