Kpop Music Mondays: TVXQ “Keep Your Head Down”

January 10, 2011

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

    But… if i had to choose why to vote for any of the songs. Then… JYJ’s “Ayyy Girl” would be for the sound. Love theyr voices <3<3
    And HoMin's Keep Your Head Down for the dance… wish I could do something close to it ^_^

    I think Maxs power is so so… i don`t know… thath you just can`t show it on video!

  4. The Max time thing is kind of mean><~ Well, yeah~in the video it's kind of lame that his super power is nowhere as cool as yunho but Max time still sounds cool to me!><
    VOTE: Ayyy Girl because K.Y.H.D is kind of…harsh to JYJ even with it's catchy beats- -//
    WIN CD: Max's power should be a high pitch voice that can destroy things! Sounds lame?? Anyway..because he has his legendary scream from Mirotic already that NO ONE could ever copy so I think that fits him best!^^
    My channel name in Youtube is orioluvjae and I'm subscribed to you!(somehow I can't comment on YT :[ )

  9. Review GD&TOP's "Knock Out" PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love you guys by the way, you are so cute & funny. <3

  10. Soooooooo happy you guys made a review video. I was waiting for it since TVXQ released the digital single lol. As far as an awesome power for Max…..he should remain as the light but instead of a light bulb in his hand why not a lightning bolt? eh? eh? I think that would be cool!!

    The owl suits were……ok I could have done without them but Max and U-Know look so cute in them so I can let it slide…I guess.

    The line thats hard to figure out sounds like Max is saying "Now im just chillin, feel like im healin" , plus this line fits the context better

    As far as choosing between JYJ and HoMin………IDK………I LOVE THEM ALL!!!!! But from an unbiased point of view……and only considering the MVs "Ayy Girl" and "Keep Your Head Down"……..HoMin wins. Honestly, the graphics in "Ayy Girl" were a little too much for the song. Its almost distracting. I know they are capable of so much better.

    <3TVXQ <3JYJ AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST <3 Eat Your Kimchi!!!!!!
    :-)

  11. OKay, so TVXQ's song was pretty much epic (even though i love them both) so im gonna have to vote for Keep Your Head Down

    Yeah I have to admit those outifts were an odd choice, although they reminded me more of a giant moth, than an owl. Also, i looked up the lyrics and supposedly Changmin is saying "healin" although i totally hear "killin" (so i would vote "killin" even though im pretty sure its wrong, just because it sounds cooler)

    -and please do GDTOP's KnockOut for next week-oh yeah!!!!!!

    9 years ago
  12. You guys really should do GD&TOP's Knock out next time. PPPPPLLLLEEEEAAASSSSSEEEE~ >.< pretty please~

  14. Awesome Music Monday like everytime. I´m voting for Ayy Girl by JYJ, video is horrible but song is great.

    9 years ago
  15. Max Super power should be his high volume which he can roar everywhere he want.. some said that Max Changmin is Lord Voldamote! So it is just suit enough to put Max as someone who love to control everyone using his voice power! lolx :P

    "MAX ROAR" bwahahahah

    for me to pick between TVXQ and JYJ – I prefer JYJ if we talking about the song/music :) absolutely the Ayyy Girl have lots of meaning compare to Put your head down which somehow sound really bad and a bit negative. :)

    9 years ago
  16. Max Super power should be or ice control or water control, something that can fight with u-know power!
    Its the perfect mix! : D

  17. That leprechaun is exactly what I was thinking.
    TVXQ/DBSK gets my vote because of the awesome beat in the song.

    9 years ago
  18. Wow this post requires me to think toooo much !! Or maybe its that Im overthinking it ?!?!

    I love both groups alot and wish the best for all of them. However I am a pretty realistic kind of person and it was very easy for me to know which song was the better. TVXQ – Keep Your Head Down !!

    The song KYHD is way better than Aye Girl because the rhythm comes together more easily, the beat is very catchy and the lyrics work a hella lot better. The only part of AG that I personally liked was the Ayyye Aye Girl swoon. All the other elements in that song just didnt quite connect to make a smooth song.

    9 years ago
    • Now for the KYHD video:

      1) It definately sounds like Changmin is sayin "Now Im just chillin, feels like Im killin"
      2) The "owl" suits…o0ooh mann!! the suits = UGH !!
      3) The black suits look awesome. I have to say I like U-Know's 1/ 2 on 1/2 off look better than Changmin's cape look but both are soo sexxy !!
      4) I totally see your point about U-Know vs Changmin. Is it because U-Know has always been the " leader " of the group that hes getting the better of the deal ?? Better hair, Better clothes, Better super power ?? :oP

      9 years ago
      • 5) This one might offend some: Even after reading about all the problems the group had with SM Entertainment, I still have to say that I think HoMin has the better deal, staying with SM, than JYJ did by going to another label. The music with SM is killer compared to JYJ's and the videos cant even begin to be seriously compared.

        Had I been a manager for JYJ I would have never EVER let them release AG. Its an embarrassment to the DBSK/TVXQ as a whole. The music components didnt fit, the video CGI and concept just plain sucked, having Kayne West did NOTHING for the song and the guys really truthfully did not look good in that video !! As I mentioned earlier, the only good part of AG is the simple phrase " Ayyye Aye Girl ". Thats pretty darn sad !!

        :hugs:: <3 them ALL !!

    • Lol. That's awesome :D

      • I'm happy you guys like it… I remember how funny it was the first time I saw the M/V I was ROFL :D

        I soo soo sooo soooo wanna win that CD because it's too expensive for me … if Europe fans (Romania) can participate too :s
        I really like both songs but i'll pick Homin(TVXQ) with Keep your head down only because it's still fresh ^_^

        As for Max time .. he's superpower I think it should have been SONIC SCREAM =Ability to generate vocal sounds of a higher amplitude than a normal human or MATTER INGESTION = Ability to consume any sort of matter without any ill effects on the user.<3

  19. I already commented on the youtube video, but I want to say something here aswell (this has no word limit xDDD).

    Anyways, as many people already pointed out, the lyrics go "healing". But I was deaf just as well as you guys at first, since it sounded so weird.

    As for the voting. Well, I chose TVXQ, but if there was no starting rap part in "Ayy Girl", it would have my vote then, as it sounded so horrible I ALWAYS skipped it cause it made feel sick from the horrible rapping.

    As for the outfits. Somehow I have to disagree. I acctually like how it looks on Yunho. It looks horrible on Max, but for some reason Yunho looks kind of cool in the close-ups with that owl outfit (probably because of the patch of fur and an open chest). Or it must be my weird taste.

    Anyways, I think I might get your attention here for the desktop of your latop? What is it? :D I wrote on youtube about it too. It looks like TVXQ from far away, but I can't really clearly see it from the video ;p

    P.S. comment about something totally different, since now requests are open again for next week. Is it just me, or does "Knock Out" by GD and TOP music video seem like the-morning-after-the-party-in-high-high-video? xDD

    • It's a picture of SHINee's spread for (I think) Vogue magazine. It was from the cool set where they're pulling each other by the neckties. (FYI that's on Martina's laptop, of course)

  22. Note: Now I'm just chillin, feel like I'm "ILLIN"
    Like, I'm "ill"
    I think this makes the most sense xD

  23. My first thought was to give Changmin the ability to reverse time and prevent the seperation of TVXQ, (cause i'mÿ a die hard 5 for ever fan!!) but I kinda figure EVERYONE would say that. So I would have to say his power would be vapokinesis. I mean when you think about it, Yunho's power is pyromancing so they would fit. And wouldn't end up accidently burning down their house or making the world explode. (I don't really wannaÿ die.)

    As for the showdown, I would have to say HoMin's 'Keep your heap down', altough I love JYJ's 'Ayy Girl', it wasn't the best song on their album (Empty was!) and 'Keep your head down' amazingly catchy…….now I feel bad…..ALWAYS KEEP THE FAITH!! 5 FOREVER!!……..better ^_^.
    (I posted this on both Youtube and here because I wasn't sure where I was ment to.)

  24. Max power should be lightning! i don't know why but i think lightning will look way cool with fire =]

  25. Guys, you can't be serious. Of course, JYJ's Ayyy girl is better, it's more memorable and catchy. Even the video is like… *drooling…* Not the point, ehem. But I keep listening to HoMin's Keep your head down and the moment I turn it off, I can;t remember the melody, just those strange drums -_-' I end up humming HEY! from Mirotic album, it sounds so similar….

    As for Max's super power…. I think he should be able to raise his hand and do the Harry Potter thing – accio the rest of TVXQ and they would appear at the end and they would dance in an awesome way and it would be… well, awesome ^^' So yeah, bring back JYJ. Or at least Spudgy. Yeah, Spudgy in flames will do. :P

  28. Max Superpower i think i have to choose the travil in time. i want Max to go back in time and stop all the SM problems so that TVXQ/DBSK would be together as one again and not being split. TVXQ/DBSK is my favorit kpop band and i don't want to choose between JYJ and DBSK thats why i can't pick a song eather i think they are great. but greatest together as one !. but Max has a power already he has a really really powerfull voice. ^^ keke many greetings from Denmark <3 praying to win ^.^
