British man spent more than $225,000 to look like Jimin

A CAUCASIAN man has had his jaw shaved down, along with numerous other surgeries, to look like his Korean boyband idol. Oli London first hit headlines in February 2019 after news broke that he’d spent over £75,000 on surgeries to look like K-pop star, Jimin from Korean boyband BTS. In June 2019 Oli went back to Korea to have more surgery done on his face. The 29-year-old had a total of five surgeries with Dr Yun Chang Woon at View Plastic Surgery assisted by Medictel Korea; rhinoplasty, alarplasty, mandible angle reduction (v line jaw surgery), zygoma reduction (cheek bone reduction), and genioplasty with T osteotomy (chin contouring). He has now had over 15 surgeries and has spent an estimated £125,000 to acheive his dream look.

"cultural appreciation not cultural appropriation"...that is like 6th on the list of why what you're doing is messed up sir

edit: but in all seriousness he's clearly quite ill and no one should have enabled this by taking his money and cutting up his face or filming it for a documentary

Yep I’ve less issues with what this guy did cause he’s clearly unwell than with those greedy ass empty soul plastic surgeons who assisted him in his delusion...money really corrupt absolutely!

So out of all 7 BTS members... he chose to look like Jimin? Like, at least go for Taehyung lmao.

I think a comment in the ONTD post summed it up well in that it seems more like an obsession with Jimin and he's trying to do whatever he can to draw any kind of association between himself and Jimin, no matter how pathetic. So it's not really about what Jimin looks like, it's just a way to draw any kind of connection between him and his object of obsession.

can u imagine spending that much money and ending up looking like that in the end?

anyways i hope he seeks help

Aaaaaaand he still looks nothing like him and looks like shit.
azoarka 19th-Sep-2019 12:48 am (UTC)
It honestly comes across less about wanting to look like Jimin and more like wanting to draw a connection to Jimin, no matter how desperate it is. It's not really about aesthetics, he just wants attention from Jimin. Like, he said in another video that he tries to hang in areas in Seoul where he thinks he could run into Jimin....that just reads like obsessive stalker behavior, he's just willing to spend more money/do more extreme actions than most stalkers (not to mention, more media attention).

This man is not mentally well :(

The part towards the end where his one friend is fighting with him about the PS and he says he's Jimin then corrects himself and say's he's Ollie is some scary ass shit. I hope he never meets Jimin.

Yeah, that was so creepy. That was the moment that made me think this isn't really about wanting to look like Jimin, he's just fucking obsessed. IDK if he mentioned it in this video but in another video, he mentioned wanting to hang out in certain areas of Seoul in order to "accidentally" run into Jimin which.....restraining order alert.

i really hope bighit is aware of him because every thing he says about jimin and his actions are seriously unnerving. i can't even imagine if i were jimin, how i would feel if i met this guy/heard his thoughts
modestgoddess79 19th-Sep-2019 01:30 am (UTC)
He needs therapy and Jimin needs a restraining order

He's uglier than Jimin but probably sings just as well.

and i oop :x
aeries_amethyst 19th-Sep-2019 01:40 am (UTC)
...he spent all that money and still doesn't look like him...? but aside from that, getting all that PS to look like another person out of obsession is seriously messed up. he needs to get serious help and jimin does not need to get himself another saesang if this escalates.
