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

  2. I think Max should have the power to control the weather. That way he can put U-Know's flames out with rain, then dry him out with wind. Lastly, blow him away with a tornado. MAX TIME!!!

    And by the way I am so a new fan of you guys, you two are too HILARIOUS! XD

  3. hi.. i think max should have super water power lol.. u know what i mean.. erm.. water vs fire. i think its gonna be cool. its the same concept with yunho but this time use water. water splash all over. put more attitude for water movement. if.. they wanna go with water. if they wanna play with fire and water. they also can make flash for max.. just put max playing with flash and yunho with fire.. when its come together its gonna be such like a thunder storm. thats my opinion =)
    p/s: sorry for my bad english. not my native language =(

  8. Great video. I love Mondays again! Plus I bookmark you so you entertain me at work. I tell everyboday about the Cat Cafe. They always give me this look like, stop – dont tell me anymore (they think im gonna talk about cat cuisine) NEVER! But I love the site. Thanx a bunch!

  9. I think Max should have the power to freeze time especially at awkward moments like you guys did (: He can make funny and ridiculous comments about Yunho just for laughs of course. I think that would be really fun and entertaining (: He might not have any major dramatic power, but at least he would have the last laugh (: Hope you like my idea :)

  10. Sigh. DBSK divided. My vote's going to have to go with 'Why' because it's just a better music video, period. JYJ's sky palace/napkin shirts don't hold a candle to Yunho's pyro skills (haha–candle? No?) and Changmin's….light. And the absence of odd 'run at the camera in slow motion to deliver teh sexi' shots is made of win. Hopefully they'll be making videos together again sometime soon….

  13. Ahh, I love your show so much kkk ♥

    I like TVXQ better ^___^

    And I think Changmin should have the power to throw flashes of lightening. It is something as powerful as Yunho's fire balls and I think sometimes Max's gaze is so intense that you think there are flashes darting out of his eyes the next moment. Either you hate or you love storms and I think Max is the one who polarizes the most out of the members.
    Furthermore flashes are something dynamic and forceful, which are the attributes which come to my mind when I see him dance kkk

    Have a nice week! :D

    It’s the first time I watch one of your videos and all I can say is… Guys, you’re great!
    About the video/song… I love both songs, but I had to choose, I’d picked up Ayyy Girl song and Keep your head down video. xDD

    mmm and Changmin’s power… I think he should have the power of water, water vs. fire…. water wins, of course!! but not any power… I was thinking about something like Squirtle from pokemon… something like “water gun” or “thunderbolt bubble” (is it said that way? sorry for my horrible English!)..

    Great job! From now, I’ll follow you in both twitter and youtube!

  15. I like the comeback of JYJ, I'm sorry HoMin but JYJ is awesome! I love their voices, It's true the video is horrible! but the song is cool… The power that could be have Max was have water and ice powers! the super power to freeze water with a blow!
    Thaks for the video guys! you are awesome!

    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!!

  22. on their comeback stage: the lyrics are always shown on the bottom left during the program and max's part said "now I'm just chillin, feels like I'm healin" so I definitely think its healing. hope that made sense

    9 years ago
    • Yeah! That's what got us so confused, because we read it on the screen as "Healin" but I swear it sounds like killin.

      9 years ago
  23. 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(:

  31. 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 ^.^

  33. 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

  39. I soo soo sooo soooo wanna win that CD because it's too expensive for me … if Europe fans (Romania) can participate too ^^
    I really like both songs but i'll pick Homin(TVXQ) with Keep your head down only because it's still fresh :D
    As for Max time .. he's superpower I think it should have been controlling water (because Yunho has fire) or THUNDERBOLT(electricity)
