0 0

A British influencer has had almost 20 plastic surgery procedures to look like a member of a K-pop band and says they “identify as Korean”.

Oli London, who uses the pronouns they and them, on Monday shared a series of videos from a hospital bed.

It highlighted their latest round of surgeries in a bid to look like BTS member Park Jimin.

“Hey, guys. I’m finally Korean. I’ve transitioned,” London said in one video, claiming they were now “transracial”.

“I identify as Korean, that’s just my culture, that’s my home country, that’s exactly how I look now.”

London also posted a rainbow version of the Korean flag to their Twitter.

“This is my new official flag for being a non-binary person who identifies as Korean.

“Thank you for the overwhelming support it was so hard for me to come out as them/they/kor/ean.”

The supposed overwhelming support, however, was also marred by accusations of racism and cultural appropriation.

“I’m all for people making themselves comfortable in their own skin, but this is too far,” one person said.

Another asked: “Is this not blackface but for Asians or am I trippin lol.”

London hasn’t responded to the backlash, but has retweeted clips of media personalities discussing their “transition”.
