29-year-old Oli London first made it into the papers in 2018 when he announced he had spent more than $90,000 on facial procedures to look more like South Korean pop singer Jimin of the BTS boyband.
“Basically BTS debuted in 2013 and I was actually living in Korea at the time, and I was watching some TV and BTS performed and I was just amazed by all of them,” Oli explained in an interview with Barcroft TV.
“I want my entire lifestyle to revolve around K-pop and I want my entire look to look like Jimin because for me he is perfection, his jaw shape, his lips his voice, everything.”
In an attempt to get the best possible results when it comes to modifying his face to look more Korean and less Caucasian, Oli traveled to South Korea.
“I’m in very safe hands in Korea, I know it’s the best in the world for plastic surgery, I mean Gangnam which is like the most upscale place in Seoul – and I have the best plastic surgeon who is actually a specialist in facial contouring,” he added.
“I know some people don’t understand plastic surgery but it’s certainly become a lot more normalized around the world and, at the end of the day, I’m doing what makes me happy, I’m following my dreams.”
As the 29-year-old added, it has always been his dream to adopt the Korean culture and be and act more like Koreans.
“So, I’m not actually changing my race, I have a deep respect for Korean culture. It’s cultural appreciation not cultural appropriation so I’m very, very respectful of Korean culture,” Oli admitted.
“It’s just I’m really in love with Korean culture. I really understand it, I’ve been learning the language so I’m incredibly respectful to Korean people. Korean people love me! They are very kind to me, they are very nice, they don’t have a problem with it.
“As long as it doesn’t affect people, as long as it doesn’t hurt people, I’m doing something that makes me happy and I’m doing something because I love Korea, I love K-Pop.
“It’s just a particular look you get; a lot of people want to emulate Kim Kardashian, people want to emulate these stars, for me it’s a K-Pop star.”
