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

  7. I was going to comment on youtube, but it wouldn't let me put in enough characters. I hope this still lets me enter the contest… :) Hmmm… comeback song, while I love all 5 boys equally, I have to vote for HoMin, DBSK's Keep Your Head Down. While I know some of the Cassies thought it was directed at JYJ and whatnot, I loved this song. It has got a perfect beat and rhythm and Yunho and Changmin are oh-so-hot. 2 years and 2 months and they have not let me down :D Personally, I liked JYJ's Empty and their new album (Their Rooms: Music Essay) songs better than Ayy Girl. If we had been comparing any of those songs to Keep Your Head Down, I might have picked JYJ.
    Changmin's (Max's) power would have to be water. While I think light works pretty well in this video, if you had to change it to a better one, I would pick water. I thought they used the light sort of as a way for the two of them to come together to make the planet explode or maybe to make the sun. And we all know Changmin would love to bully his hyungs with the light power and he would totally turn the lights on and off just to bug them, especially to bug Junsu. However, water would work too. I mean, couldn't you totally picture Changmin splashing around in water through the entire music video? Every video so far where one of the DBSK members has been in water, it was Changmin (see Mirotic, Hi Ya Ya, etc.), and this would just fit his entire concept. Also, fire and water are opposites. Considering that one part in the music video where Changmin and Yunho are battling it out and Changmin has that fierce expression on his face, they have to have opposite super powers. And then, fire's other "opposite" could be ice. So Changmin could freeze his water and boom! Changminnie has an awesome super power.
    Hmmm, Changmin's English… I must say, that's the most entertaining part of this song. My sister and I crack up every time we watch, and then of course, we have to go back and watch it again. The official lyrics are "Now, I'm just chillin', feel like I'm healin'. Personally, I heard killin' the first time I listened to it, but I guess we have to trust the official lyrics.
    DBSK fighting!

  15. Don't know if you are actually going to read all of these-but why does ur remote say "ummm….im still stuck"-or something like that?
    -seems like you have so much trouble keeping track of the remote you have to tape it to your couch huh?? maybe me and my roommates should start implementing your idea, we seem to lose our remote waaay too much :)

    9 years ago
    • Of course we read all these! Anyhow, the remote is a jerk who keeps on trying to run away and hide in places where we can't find him. We let him go on parole for a bit but then he made a run for it as well. Looks like we're gonna keep him locked up on our couch forever.

  19. I like both songs, but I have to say that I like 'Keep Your Head Down' a little bit more, and the video is so much better! (Or maybe it's because Changmin is my favorite member? Naaah, I like the other reason better)
    – Sooo yeah, I'm voting for TVXQ.

  20. You’re getting more and more crazy :-D I love it

    there will be another MBLAQ's MV for Stay, I would like to see your review of this one (cuz the song is awesome)

    and about DBSK v.2.0 vs. JYJ I think I like Homin better, esp the song, not to mention MV ;) I forced myself to watch Ayy Girl for the second time only thanks to you guys; Rollin' down my sexy window~ will be forever my jam

  23. Max should have T.O.P's Monkey Magic!! :D

  24. JYJ fo sho. Although I did like Keep Your Head Down, I just have to be straight up and say I preferred Ayyy Girl. By the way, incredibly EPIC review this week. The Max cuts were the best, ROFL! Rock on, Changmin. Yunho may be able to explode the planet but hes got the power to eat up land with holes and inflict seizures upon people with his flashing lights. But uh…super power huh? Telekinesis baby. Ohh yeeah. Then he can, I don't know, pitch throw bandits into walls and make more holes. :|

    Ah yes my YouTube comment for Max's super-power should definitely be "Anti-oxygen" powers. That way he could suck the wind out of Yunho's sails….and Yunho's fire! He could also take credit for all the Kpop videos like B2ST's Soom, Miss A's I Can't Breathe, G-Dragon's Breathe…the list goes on.

  26. I vote for TVXQ Homin.

    TVXQ has the much better song.

  31. Hahaha! This is an easy question! DBSK wins! I mean, I still love JYJ.. But Max & Yunho just had the better song! Plus I saw them perform part of it live in LA. So Max & Yunho FTW. <3 I think Max should have the power of Super screaming. Like high pitched screaming! Cuz he screams so much in their songs, but they are amazing!!! Or he could be water since Yunho was fire. That would be pretty amazingg. (: <3

  32. TVXQ's song was awesome!

  33. MAX should have the ability to go back in time then all of them were together

    TVXQ 's is better Kanye ruined Ayy Girl.

    9 years ago
  34. TVXQ all the way!! Keep Your Head Down gets better the more I listen/watch it. JYJ's Ayyy Girl scared me so bad upon my first viewing my friend had to force me to watch until the end, and when I listened to the song by itself I forgot all about it and didn't realize it had ended. I love you JYJ but Yunho and Changmin beat you hands down.

    9 years ago
  35. I vote for TVXQ's comeback because I felt like there was a lot more ENERGY and FEELING into their music video. SORRY JYJ T^T
    And I would totally give Changmin the power to… CONTROL WATER. Sounds kinda typical but at the end, when Max and Yunho high-five each other, water and fire would spiral around them and like the would would end all steamy like and stuff… YEAH… and he could definitely "make it rain" on him. ;)…. Get it? hehee….I'll give you a minute to think about it Martina. ^-^

  36. 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

  37. i like all of them…especially the last one. lol!

  38. I would like to win the contest just to post everywhere that you guys (and yesasia… and yesstyle…) sent me a gift!!! :D__(But i would REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLY like if it was the BigBang' new album… that didn't come out yet…!!! xDDD )

  39. For Max’s power–As a X-Men and Heroes fan both, I know Max’s power unequivocally should have been ice. It would’ve looked amazing in the video, fit the whole opposing forces thing the choreo features, and Max’s line? “Now I’m just chillin’?” Get it? ;) (Am a subscriber–love you guys!)

    I also think that TVXQ’s song was much better than JYJ’s. Ayyy Girl just seemed very…incomplete and Why has a much stronger sound.
