North Korea's Kim Jong Un wins Time's 'Person of the Year' reader poll


However, some of the highest vote tallies got a boost from members of Internet forums like 4Chan who launched a campaign to manipulate the results pushing North Korea's supreme leader to the top of the list, Time said.

Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for her outspoken activism, placed 15th in the poll with 340,205 votes followed by Korean rapper Psy, creator of the 'Gangnam Style'-sensation and the most-watched video in YouTube history who was placed 17th.

US President Barack Obama, who was Time Person of the Year in 2008 got 89,000 votes and was placed 19.
