2011/04/06 | 623 views | Permalink | Source

Korean Wave singer and actor Rain is in first place in an online voting for the World's 100 Most Influential People selected by the U.S. newsmagazine Time.

Rain has garnered some 47-thousand votes to stand in first place among the 204 nominees. He is some 20-thousand votes ahead of the second-placed figure, actor Chris Colfer.

In this year's online vote, nominees include mass pop culture stars including Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Susan Boyle, in addition to U.S. President Barack Obama and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Other figures include leading investor Warren Buffett and Apple's figurehead Steve Jobs.

The online vote will close next Thursday. Time Magazine will conduct its own screening process before announcing its top 100 in May.
