This week, Time magazine revealed its choices for the 100 most influential people in the world, which was really only as interesting as these countdowns tend to be. The usual suspects (politicians like Germany’s Angela Merkel, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, cultural icons like Justin Bieber and the royals Prince William and Kate Middleton) were on the list along with a couple of curve balls thrown in to make you go hmm… (tennis star Kim Clijsters and actress Mia Wasikowska).
Most interesting perhaps is the reader’s choice selection — Rain, the South Korean pop star and actor who is best known here in the U.S. as the star of the film Ninja Assassin for which he won an MTV award. This is his third year atop this chart.
Above, Rain shows his acting chops and after the jump, a Rain music video. If you’re looking for a spokesperson, maybe you should give him another look.
