Rain Walks Red Carpet as One of the Time 100

2006/05/09 | Permalink | Source

K-Pop superstar Rain headed to New York again with his credentials boosted by being named as one of the world's "most influential" stars. After being designated by Time magazine as one of the "Time 100", the star walked down the red carpet at the Lincoln Center in a ceremony for those who made the list on Monday (local time).

The first Korean performer to receive such an honor, Rain afterwards attended the Time 100 party, where he was given a commemorative medal along with the likes of Condoleezza Rice, George Lucas and Russell Crowe. Another Korean who made it onto the list, Prof. Jim Yong Kim of Harvard Medical School, also attended the day's festivities.

Meanwhile, Rain's selection to the Time 100 has been well received by the world's Netizens.

In a poll by AOL News asking Netizens if the selection was justified, 69 percent agreed that Rain deserved the honor. An ongoing poll on the Time website that asks visitors how influential those selected are, Rain garnered a mark of 4.53 out of a maximum of 5, which puts him in second place following actor Dane Cook.

Rain is scheduled to return to Korea on Wednesday morning and continue filming his debut movie "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK" in Busan.
