Actually, now that the polls have closed, Rain ended up at #2 and Colbert at #3. Nintendo man Miyamoto took #1. Those not keeping up with the Bi-Cobert "feud" (it's all a joke after all) last year Bi took #1 on the online poll (not the official magazine list) and so Colbert created a K-pop video par...

I'd have to agree with groink. The whole friend-to-lover thing is risky. If it works out, hey that's awesome. But if it doesn't, you just wasted a lot of time. Especially if it ends the friendship you two built. A very sad thing. Happened to me, and I'm sure it has happened to some of you too. That'...
