‘Keep Your Head Down’ records exeptionally high sales~!

TVXQ’s newest album sold over an astonishing 15,000 copies within a day, according to album sales analyst Hanteo.

The special edition of “Keep Your Head Down” was released on the morning of January 5th, and by 4 PM KST, the duo racked up an impressive sales amount of 15,000 copies sold.

Offline sales have yet to be calculated and added into the record. By 5 PM KST, the album was already recording close to 20,000 in online sales, which means that reaching 30,000 sales overall in one day would be easily manageable for the duo.

The album is currently ranking first on the Hanteo charts, in addition to all of the major music sites such as Bugs, dosirak, Mnet, and Daum Music.

Their music video for the song has also placed on ‘the most views’, ‘most replies’, ‘most favorited’, and ‘most rated video’ rankings for YouTube Korea. “Keep Your Head Down” also managed to list on other YouTube location charts for Canada, the UK, Netherland, Russia and many more as the ‘most viewed video’.

The duo will be making their comeback on “Music Bank” on the 7th, “Music Core” on the 8th, and “Inkigayo” on the 9th, followed by the release of the album’s ’standard edition’ on the 12th.
