Bright purple lights are shining through cities with a little funk and soul this week as different townships light up to pay tribute to South Korean global pop sensation BTS.
Iconic structures within Megaworld townships in different parts of the country—from the Clock Tower in Capital Town Pampanga, the Arco de Emperador in Arcovia City, Venice Grand Canal in McKinley Hill, the giant dancing fountain of Uptown Bonifacio, and the iconic Casa de Emperador that houses the Iloilo Museum of Contemporary Art (ILOMOCA) in Iloilo Business Park—go purple at night.
This is in support of the millions of Filipino K-Pop fans who are expected to troop to McDonald’s stores, including those located in Megaworld townships, for the much-anticipated launch of the BTS meal.
“All the craze about BTS is part of what makes Filipino pop culture very diverse and colorful. Even during this time, we are still able to find ways to keep ourselves entertained, and our townships are one with this one-of-a-kind celebration that brings happiness to us all,” a statement from Megaworld says.
McDonald’s stores based in Megaworld townships will be offering the BTS Meal starting this Friday. The meal is McDonald’s newest collaboration with BTS, the seven-man Korean boy band behind much-loved hits like Dynamite, Butter, Life Goes On, and Boy with Luv.
