Korean Netizens Can’t Get Enough Of McDonald’s “Tae Tae Set” Inspired By BTS’s V
There is no denying that fans across the world flocked to McDonald‘s stores in excitement after the release of their BTS collaboration meal late last month.
The BTS Meal contains a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium World Famous Fries, and medium Coke with special Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces.
However, in South Korea, there seems to be another meal gaining popularity, and that is the “Tae Tae Set.” Although it is not an official McDonald’s meal, the combination, which is inspired by member V, includes a Double Bulgogi Burger Large Set, Chicken McNuggets, and an Oreo McFlurry.
This combination has been called the “Tae Tae Set” because V has recommended these items on several occasions. In particular, fans have been posting about the time V started promoting his favorite McDonald’s items during one of their concerts in 2017.

The influence of V and his love for this menu has become widespread. McDonald’s is even using his iconic “McFlurry one, please” line, from Bon Voyage Season 4 in New Zealand, on their advertising.

It seems as if McDonald’s has become BTS central, not that anyone’s complaining! With the “Tae Tae Set” gaining popularity in South Korea, could the brand capitalize on this success and add another meal to their worldwide collaboration with the group?
