You have likely heard of the word game Wordle, you may even have heard of Quordle and Heardle, but have you heard of BTS Heardle? If you're a K-pop fan, or member of the BTS Army, it is likely that you have.

Much like Wordle, the once-a-day linguistic game, BTS Heardle gives fans, who are well versed in the band's many hits, a daily opportunity to guess a song by the South Korean septet in a BTS-appropriate seven attempts.

For guess one, there are lyrics in English and Korean as a hint, then for the subsequent six guesses snippets of the song are played, increasing in length with each guess. As with Wordle, the intention is to guess the answer in as few tries as possible and fans are then encouraged to share their scores on social media.

Every day, a new song from the BTS discography will be used. Tuesday's first clue, for example, is the lyrics, "I reject rejection. I’m too cool from the beginning. Everyone copies me".

The game, created by fans who manage the Twitter account @BTSChartData, is already a hit and #BTSHeardle is trending globally. The musical game can be played on both PCs and mobile devices.

The majority of fans who have shared their score on Twitter have guessed the song in one or two attempts. Incorrect guesses are shown with a red square emoji, while correct guesses are indicated via BTS-purple.
