Rain has won TIME’s 100 poll once again.
If you can recall, back in 2006 and 2007 he also topped the poll and he was runner up in 2008. After a few years away from the top of the list, his devoted fans have once again vaunted him to the top.
It seem’s TIME wasn’t surprised with the outcome stating,
“Korean pop star Rain has won the top spot in the TIME 100 poll, in which we asked readers to rank who they think are the world’s most influential people. By the time the poll closed Thursday night, he had garnered 406,252 “influential” votes and 33,813 “not influential” votes. This is certainly not the first time Rain has taken the top spot; he won in 2006 and 2007, and placed in second in 2008. Coming in a distant second this year was Jay Chou, Taiwanese star of The Green Hornet, getting 207,239 “influential” votes. Rounding out the top three was Britain’s Got Talent phenomenon Susan Boyle with 151,324 “influential” votes. The top-ranking American on the list was Beyoncé, coming in fifth.
