Actor and singer Rain (Jung Ji Hoon, 28) and “Figure Queen” Kim Yuna (20) have been nominated for Time magazine’s online poll that selects the “world's most influential 100 people” (hereafter referred to as the Time 100).

They were included among 200 preliminary nominees list that Time presented before the online poll for the Time 100.

Time will conduct an online poll among the 200 preliminary nominees and go through an internal evaluation to select the final “Time 100” on or around May 1.
Rain has been selected as one of the Time 100 and walked on the red carpet for five years since 2006.
On the online poll for the Time 100 conducted in 2007 and 2008, he ranked the first and second, respectively.

Time introduced Rain on the website: “Rain is a Korean star and gaining popularity even in America after his recent successful overseas tour with his album entitled ‘Rainism.’ Also, he showed his acting ability by appearing in movies such as ‘Speed Racer’ and ‘Ninja Assassin.’”

Time also introduced Kim Yana: “Kim Yuna is the Olympic figure skating champion for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic. She recorded the highest score since the ISU adopted the New Judging System in 2006.”
