The two biggest international music acts both landed on the esteemed list, but which pop phenom is your favorite?

The highly anticipated TIME 100 list has finally been released, and two of the youngest, and no doubt most talented, men on the list are both international pop stars — Justin Bieber and Rain! 17-year-old Justin has had quite a year, and it’s only April! He released his 3-D movie Never Say Never to major box office bucks, is in the middle of an international tour and went public with his much discussed relationship with Selena Gomez. We wonder what else he has in store for the year!

Rain, 28, has also had a crazy year. For the third year in a row Rain won the voter poll for the TIME list, beating out Lady Gaga and even President Obama! Rain also snagged an MTV Movie Award for his role in Ninja Assassin and remains one of the most beloved actors and singers in South Korea.

So HollywoodLifers, we want to know — who is your favorite TIME 100 pop star?

Rain is not only loved in South Korea. He has fans in places you might not expect: Egypt, Turkey, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Peru, Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Russia, UK, as well as in Asian countries, such as China, Thailand, Phillipines, Singapore, Malaysia and, yes, he has lots of fans in the US, too! Rain’s influence is even more about the inspirational positive example he has set than it is about his talent, looks or accomplishments, although he has plenty of all three! Rain has overcome poverty, personal tragedy and a number of professional setbacks by working incredibly hard and refusing to give up. He has remained respectful and never publicly badmouthed anyone even when others have treated him unfairly. His approach has been to just work harder to prove himself and win over others by earning their respect. He has also proved himself to be a caring individual who has worked for worthy causes such as fighting against human trafficking, helping children orphaned by AIDS and protecting the environment. I also appreciate Rain’s talents as an entertainer. Rain is a terrific dancer, has a unique mellow voice and is capable of some really fine acting. His best effort IMO was in the TV series “A Love to Kill” which won him a KBS Excellence in Acting award and won the Asian Television Association’s Best Drama Series of the year award. I was amazed at Rain’s grit and determination in mastering a high level of martial arts and stunts skills for his role in Ninja Assassin and got a huge kick out of his mastery of Swiss yodeling in the “I’m a Cyborg” movie. I wish Rain great success in his current film project and concert tour. Congratulations, Rain on winning the Time 100. You deserve this honor!

Rainは最高のアーティストです!!
Rainは歌もダンスも演技も パワフルです!!
最高にパワフルですばらしいだけでなく歌を作ったりダンスを作ったり練習したりコンサートを構成したり後輩を育てたりまわりの人を楽しませたりする姿勢も自分を鍛えたりファッションでも楽しませてくれます!!
すばらしいRainがTIMEで世界的にもすばらしいと認めてもらえて喜んでいます!!
ジャスティンビーバーの歌も歌声が好きでよく聴いています!

どちらかを選ぶとしたら Rainです!!
