04.30.11 [Info] Dear Editor: TIME 100 Readers Speak (Rain Mentioned)

*For the disappointment we had against TIME and their publishing ‘methods’ over the 100 poll recently, numerous people spoke up and one of those letters was actually published. The writer himself may not be an actual Rain fan, so the fact that his opinion was voiced and published is an even bigger deal. Thanks to our follower riannejade for tweeting this! ^ ^

Rain was recently interviewed on the April 22nd broadcast of KBS 1TV’s “KBS Newsline” for being named “Top 100 world’s most influential people in 2011″ by Time Magazine.

During the interview, Rain stated, “It’s truly an honor to come in 1st place, and it came as a bit of a happy surprise. The online vote is a popularity vote and the selection for the Top 100 is chosen by select people all over the world from Time Magazine.”

When asked about recent controversial news about celebrities’ private lives, Rain replied, “Because I am also a celebrity, I believe that it’s important to have some privacy, but it is also important to show the public your honest self.”

Then, the news anchor suddenly asked if Rain is married (indirectly referring to the current Seo Taiji scandal). Surprised by the question, Rain answered, “I want to get married. (Although I haven’t entered the military yet) Truthfully, I want to get married now, but I’m not dating anyone at the moment.”

Meanwhile, in the revealed “Time 100″ list, Rain is listed amongst the likes of U.S. President Obama, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and Myanmar politician Aung San Suu Kyi.

With his second appearance on this list, Rain has become the first celebrity in all of Asia to make the “Time 100″ list twice.

Also, Rain has been invited to the “Time 100″ party, which will be held in New York City on April 26th. He is scheduled to leave for the event from Inchon Airport on the 24th at 7:30pm.

04.22.11 [Nationalpost] Justin Bieber Joins Oprah, Korean Pop Star Rain On TIME 100 List

Previously unknown newsmakers from Egypt and Japan joined pop stars and politicians on Time magazine’s list of 100 most influential people in the world, released on Thursday.

The list includes pop culture giants such as Justin Bieber and Oprah Winfrey plus the lesser known Wael Ghonim, an Egyptian Internet activist who helped topple President Hosni Mubarak, and Takeshi Kanno, a Japanese doctor who refused to leave behind victims of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

“We’ve always, always tried to tell stories through people. … We discovered it was a fantastic way to get people to think about what’s going on all over the world,” said Time deputy managing editor Michael Elliott.

The complete list can be seen on time.com.

World leaders such as British Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff populate the list for how they have wielded power.

“The first time I met David Cameron, I knew we were political soul mates,” actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote in a profile for Time, calling him “a centrist who avoids the gutters of politics.”

Others include Gabrielle Giffords, the American congresswoman who survived a bullet wound to the head during a gunman’s rampage in Arizona, and Michele Bachmann, the Republican congresswoman from Minnesota who has energized the anti-tax, anti-spending Tea Party movement.

Jailed Chinese artist Ai Weiwei was honored for his “bravery and artistic skill,” Elliott said.

From the world of sport, Argentina soccer phenomenon Lionel Messi was joined by Indian cricket star Mahendra Singh Dhoni, whose charisma and leadership united an ethnically diverse team that won the World Cup.

South Korean pop star Rain won the people’s choice vote for the third straight year. Time editors chose the names on the list except for people’s choice, selected by online voters.

“He has very determined fans,” Elliott said.
