Kpop Music Mondays: TVXQ “Keep Your Head Down”

January 10, 2011


Share Post

Oh boy. GDTOP, MBLAQ, and TVXQ all released their videos on Wednesday last week. We had to choose one. We chose the one that got the most requests. So here we present to our our review of TVXQ’s “Keep Your Head Down.” To those of you disappointed, don’t kill us! There’s still next week! Or the week after!

Anyhow, we know that TVXQ’s comeback is quite big, especially considering the huge controversy and the split in the band. We reviewed JYJ’s “Ayy Girl” a while ago, and really liked their song, even if we didn’t like the video. Now, how does TVXQ fare, having only two members rather than three? Not bad at all. In fact, this song is really quite good. Simon’s a sucker for big trumpet sounds, and the chorus totally rocks. And, thankfully, they don’t have terrible CGI in their video, even though the fire explosion at the end was really cheesy. Like, whoa, a bit too cheesy. Otherwise, the video was quite good. So we’re asking you for the showdown this week which video/song you preferred: JYJ’s “Ayyy Girl” or TVXQ’s “Keep Your Head Down.”

Oh, that’s so cruel of us to ask for you TVXQ die hards, right? So we’re gonna try to exonerate ourselves with a giveaway. Usually, though, we’d buy our own CDs and ship them out ourselves, but we’re lucky enough to have the kind people at YesAsia.com and YesStyle.com volunteer to give the CDs away instead. And this time, we’re not talking about any small CDs here. We’re talking about the TVXQ Special First Press Limited Edition Album which comes with the CD, a photobook, photocards, and a poster. Shazam! And they’re giving away two of them! Double Shazam! So, you have two chances to win. First, for our YouTube subscribers, tell us what you think Max’s superpower should be (hopefully, one that isn’t lame, and one that better compliments U-Know time!). For our Twitter followers, simply press the “Share on Twitter” button above. That’s all. We’ll pick one subscriber and one follower next week and get in contact with you to get the CD super package shipped your way. Triple Shazam!

On a side note, we’re not sure where to include this, so we’ll say it here: whenever we review a Kpop video, we watch it lots of times. Lots and lots of times. Whenever we think of something to say about it, we pause the video and write down notes. This time, though, we happened to pause the video at a really odd moment, and couldn’t stop ourselves from laughing:

U Know Time!

Seems kinda funny, not so much because Yun Ho is having so much fun, but because of the expression of the two guys in the back. But then we got to doodling on the picture, and could barely contain ourselves. Hopefully no one will get offended by this and think that we’re being sacrilegious, because we know that the TVXQ fan group is very devoted. Anyhow, here’s what we came up with:

TVXQ Keep Your Head Down Fairy
TVXQ Leprechaun
TVXQ Swingset
TVXQ Bunny
U-Know Time 2

P.S. This one is our favorite :D If the fancy hits you to doodle something else on the original pic, please show us! We’re really amused by this kind of stuff :D

And, lest we forget, as always big thank yous go out to JB and Annie from [닉쑤] Enjoy Your Happy Life~* for so kindly translating all of our videos into Korean. They’ve been translating all our videos for months now, and we’re really thankful. Lastly, if you don’t happen to be one of the two lucky winners, you can still support TVXQ and order a copy by clicking on the banner below :D

    I think Changmin 's (also known as Lord Voldemin) power is making us believe that only Yunho has superpowers, but actually it's him who controls everything. If you study carefully the video you'll detect the dancers only mock of Yunho. Beware of Lord Voldemin's mighty powers!!

    Oh, this time i'll go for TVXQ rather tan JYJ, i liked Ayy Girl, but isn't the best song of the cd.

    PS: Oh, I hate that old granny sofa carpet whatever suit. Lord Voldemin please punish that stylist!!

    but honestly, VOTING FOR TVXQ's KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWNNN. cause AyyGirl kinda sucked, i liked some of their other songs, but as the title track. no.

  12. TVXQ Keep Your Head Down is a nicer more addicting song, though i'm a hard core jaejoong fan.
    Min says, Now I'm just chillin' Feel like I'm Healing. But it sounds like killing in the mv for some reason. Listen to their lives, it actually sounds like healing. Then you can give them 5/5(:

  13. lmao that is so funny ~ my Monday is 10x better now =3
    and yeah I think I like keep your head down a bit better ~ sorry jyj ;( the dancing in this is a lot better ,, I can't take ayyyy girl seriously anymore after I saw the music Monday for it lmao I think of Simon doing the dance :p

  14. TVXQ Keep your head down is the better song in my opinion. Kanye realy killed it for JYJ, and the chorus was kind of lame. TVXQ for me.

    5 years ago
  15. I think Max's superpower should be a pyrokinesis because there is a lot of fire in this vid, which can symbolize charisma, which Max totally has.
    It compliments U-Know's U-Know Time because U-Know has a refined, blazing presence, which Max can try to tame ;) <3
    BTW I choose YOU! jk (I love pokemon references)
    I like TVXQ's KYHD only because it seemed more deep and attractive, not that JYJ Ayyyy Girl wasn't (it was just poorly invested on, the video, and they could've had someone OTHER THAN KANYE BE A GUEST STAR RAPPER.) =D
    Love ya guys and yer vids :)

  16. It was clear with this video who had the more money, so of course TVXQ won. They just had a better production team, and more to work with.

    On another note OMG I WANT THAT CD, I WANT, I WANT, I WANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Please excuse my fangirl moment.

  19. uff, I'm so relieved! I was really scared you'd be biased on this one, and might compare them to JYJ… hopefully you didn't, yay! :) and review it in a totally awesome unbiased super funny way, I love you guys :)

  20. Well i would have to cast my vote for 'Keep Your Head Down' although if it was against a different JYJ song I would choose that one instead likewise if you chose a different HoMin song I would choose 'Ayyy Girl'. Although I support both sides EQUALLY I have to say that they could have chosen better songs.
    Sincerely, A male cassie striving for the reunification of the Gods

  21. As always you are so good at this! <3 Love you guys!
    As for the question who`s song is better…. you really put me in a difficult situation because from DBSK I was a fan of Yoochun so my heart would obviously chose JYJ but that wouldn`t be fair. Of course I love DBSK , all 5 members. Their songs were and are very good.

    Both Keep Your Head Down and Eye Girl have their charm but…………………..
    ……From a totaly objective oppinion, [although I don`t like to compare them because, honestly my heart hurts, (when the band you sincerely liked very much breaks in 2 is… hard to pick who`s better and who`s not)]……………………….. the best song I think is Yuhno and Changmin – Keep Your Head Down *sigh*

    I think JYJ should chose another kind of songs… Xiah and Hero really have good and high voices and with Yoochun bass they should make song based on this…. *sigh* so I`m looking foward for their next album, the Korean album. ^__^

    Thank you Martina-sshi and Simon-sshi for the awsome videos you always make! *bows head* ^__^

  23. I already made a comment under your YouTube page but this video is really awesome (and that comment section is way too crowded)! Here I say again: Congratulations guys! ^^ But still you better to watch out for those super-creepy fans.

    By the way, my vote goes to TVXQ. I do love JYJ but "Ayy Girl" sounds a bit cheesy comparing to KYHD. And Changmin's super power is being the real God of this video! "Let there be light and there was light." It matches with the "Rising Gods of East" concept/name, as well. And his stage name is "MAX". What else do I need to say to prove my argument? :p

    I hope someday you can make a video about "the Lord of the Rings". I bet that would be super fun!

  24. Gosh i completely agree Minnie got a lame power~!!~!!

    Now since water instantely comes to mind after fire i'm NOT choosing water >:D
    Ice is basically the same thing.
    Wind only feeds a fire.
    Invisibility just ruins the max time because I can't see max~!
    Force field could work but it's a bit boring. SO…
    … If you put sand on fire it extinquishes fire~~~ Then again, if the fire becomes too hot the sand becomes glass…

    But you know what would be cool? Liquid metal but it's not as dramatic.

    You know what, I chose sand. It could look absolutely awesome if it was swirling around Minnie and even if it did turn to Glass it'd still look wicked awesome and Changmin could just throw the glass (which I'm sure would have fragments of sand in it still, right) and it could become like mini daggers.

    :] And he could turn the sand into really pretty glass roses for a girl~

    He could make sand storms~!!!

  30. Chanming's power should be water. So he can pull out Yunho's fire. muahahaha

  31. Max alr has a super power! The ability to make girls paralyzed just by smiling
    But srsly (as srs as fake super powers get), he should have the super stretch ability since he's so tall anw xD

  32. Just finished watching your vid :D I'm a YT subscriber tooo ^^ Ok Max's NEW superpower then I'd say should be water. Tho it'd be rather hilarious at the end if Yunho time goes boom and blasts up the universe and suddenly all his fire gets put out with Max's tidal wave. Pretty sure that wouldn't have been the effect they were going for =p

    p.s. HoMin still > JYJ hands down. And by hands down, I mean vid AND song =p
    p.p.s Imma put this comment up on Youtube as well >3 Then maybe my chances of winning CD will be higher…? ()=D

    I'm big LOTR fan 2 btw!xD->"you shall not pass (tvxq)!!"xD

    That song IS AMAZING!!!<3~<3~<3

  37. OMG I haven't even watched the vid and I almost pissed myself laughing at the photos ahahahahaha!!! YYYEEEEESSSS I knew you guys would review this vid, there are just wayyy too many TVXQ fans bwahahhaa. And while I am a die-hard fan myself, I really couldn't help but laugh at what you guys wrote. (Tho I don't agree with the wayyy too cheesy ending. I found it so epically freaking hot! Get it, fire, hot? Yeahh okay lame). While I follow you guys on twitter, you guys won't be able to see my share because my twitter is locked D: freaking sucks balls and I can't think of a decent super power for Max apart from I always just thought Yunho commanded fire and Max commanded light. Fire & Light = Sun, critical for Earth's survival, no?

    Fudging damnit. I really want a CD as well ;__________;

    Oh well, off to watch your vid :D
    p.s. HoMin > JYJ, hands down.
