Rain is Not a Candidate for This Year’s "Time 100" List


Singer/actor Rain has not been chosen as a candidate to appear on the “Time 100” list for 2012. This list names the 100 most influential people around the world. This is probably because of the decreased amount of activities due to Rain’s enlistment.

Last year, Rain took the number one spot for the “Time 100” list. Starting from 2006, he has appeared on the “Time 100” list for six years straight.

He took the top number one spot in both 2007 and 2011, marking him as a true world star. Unfortunately, he has not been chosen as a candidate this year.

Meanwhile, other pop singers such as Adele and Beyonce have been chosen as candidates for this year’s “Time 100” list as well as actor Alec Baldwin and movie director, Danny Boyle.
