time's 100 most influential

TIME recently published the The Time 100, its annual list of the most influential people in the world—leaders, artists, athletes, scientists, revolutionaries who are shaping and changing the world we live in. Asian folks who made the list include:I should also mention that Rosie O'Donnell made the list of influential people, which is scary. (Thanks, Troy.)

It's also worth noting TIME's online readers' poll of the most influential people of the year. Korean pop star Rain topped the list 470,174 votes, followed by Stephen Colbert and Sanjaya Malakar. Come on, people. Rain? Most inluential person? In the world? I wouldn't take these results too seriously, as they are probably the result of ballot stuffing by Rain's worlwide legion of fans. Stephen Colbert, however, not content with being number two, issued a challenge to Rain with his very own Korean music video: He's Singin' in Korean. It's simultaneously hilarious and painful.
