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’.
