My brother, my mother and I saw 2NE1 in concert in August 2012. I distinctively bear in mind the microphone stand all the manner through one song became a beauitful tree with the participantsstatusat thefacets in dresses and it was a magical sight. On Friday, November 9, 2012, we saw Large Bang. I remember them thanking us for popping out because Storm Sandy just struck the Jersey Shore. They rode on segways and had great outfits on, and Daesung did his solo, ya know? After that I got into the insanity called K-pop. It was one of the mostbest possible and worst choices ane possesseach and every made- seriously and non-seriously at all. Well, the ones are my earliest K-pop memories."

THE DIFFERENCE: "I would say K-pop is other to any other pop track from anyplace else in the sector due to, obviously, the language. It is a language no onein the United Stateslearns in class and may also bewithout difficulty judged because it isanything out of the norm. Asians have sure stereotypes, yet I wager to upload to they all is the speculation that their music is bizarrebecause of language barriers, especially coming from a rustic that no personcan pay care to much.

Secondly, the reality that idols have explicit dances to every song. I'macutely conscious of artists and bands from alternative countries having routines to their music but not anything to this extent of intensity.

FAN CREDENTIALS: Although she hasn"t had been able to see any K-pop artists live yet, last summer, Braun used a family trip to Portland, Ore. as an opportunity to stock up on her fan supplies. "We ate at a Korean restaurant named "Koreana,"" she recalled. "They had K-pop playing in the background. It was my first time hearing K-pop in public so I was very excited. After we finished eating, we went to a Korean store called H Mart and I had $50 to spend. I wish I could have stayed there for hours looking at everything from Korea but we had to leave after about an hour or so. I bought K-pop socks, Korean facemasks, Korean chopsticks, and a Korean keychain. It was an amazing experience because I saw many things that I have only seen in Korean dramas. I have always thought that some football fans were very peculiar because if their favorite team lost they would be really mad, or sometimes even cry. I now scold myself for judging them so easily."

WHAT MOST AMERICANS DON"T UNDERSTAND ABOUT K-POP: "That it"s okay for a guy to be fashionable!" Braun said. "One thing I love about K-pop is that the artists express themselves, not only through their music, but also through how they dress. Another thing I think a lot of people don"t understand is that K-pop idols are people too. In their music videos they look like perfect singing and dancing machines. Sometimes, when scandals or other things happen, people are shocked to think that they would do something like that. I think something a lot of people need to know is that they make mistakes, just like us."

WHY EXO IS EXCELLENT: "In addition to being handsome, cute and sexy, they are also very talented," Braun said. "I also like the fact that they are funny. When I first got into K-pop, I thought that the only groups that existed were Big Bang, Super Junior, Girls" Generation and SHINee because they were all I could find on YouTube. As the K-pop fan grew inside of me, I discovered more and more groups thanks to websites like KpopStarz and fan pages on Facebook. When I discovered Exo, I felt like I had finally found my ultimate group. Their music can be so sad and sweet it would make me want to cry. Then, the next minute, it would make me feel like I was on top of the world, thanks to songs like "Growl" and "Wolf." Their music would make my mood go from sad to happy kind of like how gas makes car"s gas gauge go from empty to full. I also love how they include their fans in their slogan, "we are one. We are Exo!""

"Our feeling is that Shanghai has had a good reputation as a restaurant city for some time due both to a strong regional cuisine and the early incursions of Western celebrity chefs .?.?. but that Beijing is definitely catching up", said Andrews. "It's an imperfect analogy, but in a way the culinary contrast between the two mirrors that between New York City and Washington. The former is more famous as a food city, but Washington increasingly offers serious competition - usually just with a little less fanfare".

Food critics, writers and long-term foreign residents in Asia among others voted on a list of restaurants pulled together over a six-month nomination period, considering cuisine, style, value and overall buzz, to select the top 101.

Beijing's Temple Restaurant was fourth and Capital M, a modern Australian restaurant overlooking Tiananmen Square, was fifth. Another Beijing establishment, Dali Court, hit seventh.
