Kim Jong Un voted "Person of the Year" in TIME poll

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been voted "Person of the Year" in TIME Magazine's annual Reader Poll.

TIME says Kim received more than five and a half million votes in its completely unscientific poll. Though the magazine admits the totals were inflated by several online campaigns.

The announcement comes a day after North Korea defied U.N. sanctions and launched a rocket into orbit.

You should know this doesn't mean Kim is TIME's Person of the Year. That choice is made by the magazine's editors and will be revealed next week.
