Regarding the rumor that the number of votes singer Rain received for the 2006 Time 100 is fake, a spokesperson for Rain recently said, “It’s ridiculous.”
On November 16, one of the media sources reported that Rain hired a lot of people to vote for him for the 2006 Time 100 while he was having a trouble with a production agency, which was in charge of his tour of North America in 2006.
In court, Rain’s attorney asserted Rain was popular enough to be selected as one of the Time 100. However, a spokesperson for the production agency said, “That’s because he asked lots of Chinese people in the U.S. to vote for him.”
At this, a spokesperson for Rain said, “It’s ridiculous that the number of votes Rain received for the Time 100 was fake. The hundred celebrities were selected by the world-renowned magazine Time.
The process of the vote was very fair, and the vote didn’t even play a decisive role in selecting the hundred people. It’s not true that Rain hired people to vote for him. It’s also strange to question the selection criteria of the world-renowned magazine.
The selection must have been done fairly. It’s ridiculous to report such a false rumor.”
