TIME Magazine posted their 2010 list of 200 candidates for their annual ranking of the top 100 most influential people in the world, yesterday April 1st. Those listed range from politicians, athletes, entertainers, artists, etc. Rain was among these 200 greats, showing up at number 48 on the list.
This is not new to Rain being that it is his fifth year being nominated. He proceeded to make the final published list in 2006, but hasn't been able to accomplish the feat again since. However, the pop star did manage to make it into the top three for the online ranking of the top 100 most influential people in 2007 and 2008.

The entertainer was in good company, alongside Korea's figure skating queen Kim Yuna, US President Barack Obama, US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, US pop and style icon Lady Gaga, just to name a few.
