The next biggest collaboration has finally been confirmed! K-pop monster rookies NewJeans is the latest endorsers of global fast food chain McDonald’s, and their Bunnies (a.k.a. New Jeans’ fans) cannot be more excited.


NewJeans x McDo

On Instagram, McDonald’s Korea started posting teasers for the collaboration last Friday, with their first post being a simple text photo saying “ATTENTION” in McDo’s signature red and yellow colors. The next day, they shared a simple looping video of the McDonald’s logo overlapping bunny ears. Yesterday, the fast food chain shared an audio of NewJeans member Danielle saying “Crispy, crispy!”

Today, McDonald’s Korea finally confirmed the collab with individual and group photos of NewJeans for McDo. This was followed with a video game-themed teaser, indicating a March 2 release date for the ad’s full version.


An edit manifested into reality

Earlier this month, Filipino Bunny and Twitter user eyhanimon created a design of what a collaboration between NewJeans and McDonald’s would look like. They posted their edit on February 13, nearly two weeks before the actual collab was even teased. Even K-pop-centric online media outlets like shared eyhanimon’s edit.

While there is no confirmation of special packaging being available during the promotional period, Bunnies are hoping to see it happen anyway.


Previous collaborations

NewJeans is not the first Korean group with which the fast food chain has partnered with. With global superstar BTS, McDo launched The BTS Meal featuring two new sauces and special packaging that was patronized across the world, including the Philippines. BTS-designed characters BT21 were also the most recent Happy Meal toys in McDonald’s Korea.

Last year, McDonald’s Korea also collaborated with girl group ITZY as one of their endorsers.


Will it be available in the PH?

Yes, it will!

McDonald’s will be releasing its NewJeans collab in 10 different regions across Asia. This will involve special advertisements featuring NewJeans, as well as special packaging for specific chicken menu items offered in each country.

After kicking off in South Korea on June 1, the collaboration campaign will continue in the Philippines on June 13.

The campaign will then continue in Thailand (June 28), Indonesia (July 12), Brunei (Sept. 1), Malaysia (Sept. 7), Hong Kong (Sept. 24), Taiwan (Oct. 25), Singapore (date TBA), and Vietnam (date TBA).

Mark your calendars!
