Continuing its annual tradition, TIME magazine came up with a poll for the 100 most influencial people in the world for the year 2006. Each week, a new poll was introduced to the public, so that anyone could vote for whom they believed revolutionized a certain field.
Voted each week were Heroes & Icons, Leaders & Revolutionaries, Builders & Titans, Artists & Entertainers and Scientists & Thinkers.
Bono, Condoleezza Rice, Steeve Jobs, Ang Lee and Al Gore were crowned first respectively.
What interested me the most though, was that Rain came second (28% vs the 34% of Ang Lee, with Clint Eastwood following at 16%) in the Artists & Entertainers category and first among everyone at influence ratings and readers picks.

I'd suggest you listen to "It's raining" by Rain or 비 (Bi - read like "bee") as he's known in Korea, which reminds of Usher (one of Rain's favourite artists). You should also watch the clip on YouTube (bad quality but has english subtitles!) to It's raining, paying attention to his cool dancing!
