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.
