China’s hottest “styles” of 2012

Because of the Korean pop hit “Gangnam Style”, the English word “style” has been popularized in China in 2012. On Dec 24,a local newspaper published a special round-up of the hottest “styles” on Chinese social media in 2012. The feature includes six categories: “Funny (幽默) Style”, “Strong (实力) Style”, “Emotional (感情) Style”, “Surprising (惊诧) Style”, “Lateral Thinking (偏锋) Style”, and “Controversial (争论) Style”. DANWEI translated the piece.
