Rain is currently no. 1 on Time's 100 most influential people list

Korean superstar Rain has done it again! He's currently no. one of Time's 100 most influential people. The voting polls closes on April 14, so be sure to get your vote in!

Currently Rain is leading with 194,774 votes. Coming second is Hong Kong superstar Jay Chou with 100,193 votes. Rain is ahead of the pack by quite a large margin. Other people in the top 100 include Barack and Michelle Obama, Julian Assange, Lady Gaga, Betty White, Steve Jobs. It is quite brilliant that Rain is in the no. 1 position amongst these influential people.

Interesting that they grouped Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert together, they are currently in position number 28. A few years ago in 2007, Stephen Colbert announced a rivalry with Rain on his TV show! Stephen campaigned to be number one on Time's 100 most influential people list. His campaign included him making and singing a korean track!! Stephen was copying Rain's 'How to avoid the sun' music video. It's a bloody fantastic clip. Stephen got the wardrobe right and cool dance moves.

Unfortunately Stephen lost and Rain WON!!! Rain came first on Time's web poll which is different to the magazine's poll.

Stephen invited Rain to come on his show to do a dance off. Stephen put in a good effort but Rain being a brilliant dancer, danced Stephen out of this world!!

GO RAIN! I hope you take out the title this year!
