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?

That’s right, we shouldn’t be rude, Clouds. Please do bear in mind that a fan represents his/her idol. Whatever you say here reflects the entire cloud family and rain himself. Let’s just vote quietly like what we did in TIME, okay? Moreover, we wouldn’t want JB’s fans bashing Rain now, do we? Let’s respect each others’ preference and invite good vibes. Stay beautiful, people :)

This is unfair, anyway most JB fans dosn’t pay atention to this… i just checked this site cause of kpop fiend told me, first of all shame on you, I f I were that guy “Rain”, omg! I might think “This is the kind of fans I have? this is what I deserve?” You’re really unrespectful, if you call yourselves ‘FANS’ Please respect other fans, don’t you?
For yo Rain is amazing so does Justin for us! So as truly fans, we deserve respect for our Artis too
I’m 13 but , guys…. please,, if you wanna vote for Rain, just do it!! But don’t be sooo mean with Justin..

Rain is Asia’s answer to Justin Timberlake, he’s only a year younger than JT. He was the biggest star in the 2000’s! And the Korean pop star BoA is the Asian equivalent to Britney Spears or Miley Cyrus. I don’t know WHY are the Korean celebrities dominate the Asian world. Korean celebs are so OVERRATED!!! Why not Chinese or Japanese
