FACT CHECKED BY Joseph Neese

Brace yourselves for another McDonald's celeb collaboration that's guaranteed to cause hysteria among fans. The chain is partnering with K-pop sensation BTS, who is arguably the biggest pop band in the world right now, on a signature meal that features two new menu items that you've never tried before.

The BTS meal will hit McDonald's menus in the U.S., Canada, and 10 other countries on May 26, according to a press release. In the band's home country of South Korea, it will drop on May 27. In total, the meal will roll out across 50 countries over the course of May and June.

It includes a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, a medium fry, and a medium Coke. The meal also features a side of dipping sauces making their U.S. debut: Cajun and Sweet Chili. The pair of sauces are inspired by popular recipes from McDonald's restaurants in South Korea.

"The band has great memories with McDonald's," Big Hit Music, the group's record label, said in a statement. "We're excited about this collaboration and can't wait to share the BTS Meal with the world."

And you can bet that BTS' legions of fans are even more excited to eat like their beloved idols, which could prompt shortages like those seen following McDonald's collaboration with Travis Scott. The chain ended up being short on several ingredients for the Cactus Jack meal.

The BTS meal will be on U.S. menus until June 20. For more fast-food news, check out McDonald's Just Announced a New Limited-Time Dessert. And don't forget to sign up for our newsletter to get all of the latest McDonald's news delivered straight to your inbox.
