If you haven't heard of the new K-pop boy band making waves in the charts, you soon will.

Tomorrow X Together - also known as TXT - are currently riding high at number three in the UK albums charts with "The Dream Chapter: STAR".

Will TXT become the next big K-pop band?

TXT are a South Korean boy band with five members.

Soobin is the lead singer. Then there's Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun and Hueningkai.

According to Big Hit Entertainment, the name "TXT" represents the idea that the members "all come together under one dream in the hope of building a new tomorrow".

It's only the second K-pop band represented by Big Hit since BTS back in 2013.

Fans have been teased about TXT's arrival since Big Entertainment posted 'get to know the boys' videos on Youtube in January.

Seven hours after releasing their debut track, "Crown", the video had over six million views on YouTube.
