Kpop Music Mondays: TVXQ “Keep Your Head Down”

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

  4. JYJ
    As for Max's power…I think weather control(like Storm from x-men)…Because my first thought was lightning, and someone said it, so then I thought he could control the wind, that would give him the ability to fly and blow Yunho's fire around..but if he could control weather he would have lightning, wind, rain(water), snow(ice)..lots of cool stuff that would look better than wholes in a wall! <3

  8. ya that what i was think wth where they wearing that ugly outfit doesn't match the video at all
    totally love this video better, and also their dance moves r totally cool
    My VOTE to go with JYJ.. break my heart that i have to pick,
    knowing that uknow n max dominate the market and this song continue with tvxq style most girls will give their's to homin
    so my vote goes to JYJ for fairness, after all the two best singer of the group is in jyj

  12. For Max's super power i think Ice would be most suitable for Keep your Head Down since U-Know is Fire, Fire and Ice!
    And for the best song i have to say TVXQ-Keep Your Head Down!

  13. TVXQ all the way!

  14. I already posted this at your youtube page but I'll do it again, hopefully I still have a chance to win ^_^
    Wa! A CD giveaway!?! Humm let's see….If I could give Max a different super power, I would totally give him Spudgy powers! They're both super duper adorable. Who can resist the power of Spudgy? Don't you agree? Max would totally be able to win over U-know if he had Spudgy powers! All he would have to do is walk up to him and give him puppy dog eyes. U-know would totally give in every time haha. I wish I had Spudgy powers haha.
    Always Keep the Faith!
    TVXQ FIGHTING!!!
    Spudgy FIGHTING
    PS – oh my goodness you guys are soooo funny, I could not stop laughing at the comments you put on those pictures of Yunho hahaha.

    • We probably won’t get it here till week after next. I kinda have been out of the loop with the Hobbit and my LoTR loving bf doesn’t live in the same country as me anymore. For RotK I flew to her country so we scold watch it together. Oh, how times have changed. We are grown ups with jobs and now can’t do frivolous things like that anymore.

  27. I’m trying to click ‘share on twitter’ but it doesn’t work. There is some kind of error :(.
    And TVXQ has a better comeback song :D.

  28. For Changmin's superpower, there's this chalk powder blowing up in the beginning of the video, right? I imagine Minnie being that 'chilly' wind that's necessary. Not only supporting Yunho, but also controlling him in some way; not always on the foreground, but still present ^^ They're really depending on each other, no?

    Haha, sorry if I sound like a yaoi-fangirl, I didn't mean to LOL

    And oh, I just noticed: if Max impersonates the wind, the lyrics get a whole new dimension!
    "Erased, disappeared, you’ve burned to death in my heart" The wind erases her, while fire burns her to death. I love their combined powers, they really are gods :D

    Much love all the way from Belgium! You guys always give me a good laugh :)
    I'm already looking forward to the next one!

  29. Hey Simon and Martina!
    Thank you for commenting on DBSKnights: http://www.dbsknights.net/2011/01/video-youtube-v
    And in response, you're welcome! I'm glad you're still listening to JYJ despite the icky Kanye bit.

    And then you went and reblogged my Yunho macro too! http://eatyourkimchi.tumblr.com/post/2704812817/m
    Double thank you!

    I love you guys for bringing some light-hearted fun back to kpop. Keep it up!

  30. The ability to eat kimchi (without rice) at the speed of light.

  31. LOTR references are always awesome. Always.
    All the lyrics I've found say it's "healin'". When I first heard the song, I really thought he was saying "killin'".

    Since Yunho's power is fire, and they made Changmin's light, it should be related. So I say the power to control plasma (lightning, neon signs, etc.).

    Tough choice, but I have to say TVXQ.

  32. TVXQ has not only the better video but also the better song!

  33. I think JYJ's Ayy girl sounds better.

  36. Thanks for the video.. you guys rock! I already posted my suggestion to Max's power on Youtube, but I wanted to post it here again just in case.. lol!

    I suggest Max to have the power to control the movements of the earth and rocks. He would be able to split the earth from underneath the feet of the villains apart, or make a mountain rise from the sea, or bring down mountains. That would compliment U-Know's power because spliting the ground could reveal lava from below the earth, OR cover the fire with earth to put the flames out! GO MAX AND U-KNOW!!! :D

  38. love both, but for me: Keep your head down xD

  39. Max should have water/ice/snow superpower I guess that would be considered water element. In the beginning instead of being in a holey cave it should be raining around him. I think the rain will be sexy because his clothes will get stuck to his body and than it should snow and at the last scene he should create a blizzard. Rain turning into snow , snow turning into a blizzard. The last scene when they grab hands the fire and blizzard collide causing the fire to turn into ice and breaking.
