Singapore — A couple of netizens had a good laugh after another netizen on Reddit posted a screenshot capturing a Carouseller’s posting of a “Limited edition BTS McDonald’s meal.”

The Carouseller had priced the meal at SGD 50, which originally retails for $8.50, on the popular online marketplace platform Carousell. In their posting, they had also included the description “Extremely rare due to one of the nuggets looking like Jungkook.”

The BTS set meal was supposed to be available for purchase from May 27 onwards. However, the launch of the exclusive meal was delayed due to the rise in local Covid-19 cases. As such, the meal was first released yesterday on Jun 21 and is only available for delivery orders.
