People on Carousell are selling the packaging and sauces from BTS Meal sets for as much as S$500, as Singaporean fans await the the local launch that was postponed due to tightened measures in Phase 2 (Heightened Alert).

The highly-anticipated McDonald's BTS Meal is described as being inspired by "popular recipes from McDonald’s South Korea", and comes with limited edition packaging and Korean-style Cajun and Sweet Chilli  sauces.

Unlike the usual red and yellow colours that McDonald's is known for, the BTS Meal comes in purple packaging for this special collaboration.
