A social media influencer from Britain declared that he’s “finally Korean” after going through numerous eye surgeries to look more like BTS singer Park Jimin.
According to the Insider, Oli London uses the “they” and “them” pronouns. They has 427,000 followers on TikTok, 41, 600 on Twitter, and 28,600 on YouTube. London has spent $150,000 over the years to undergo numerous eye surgeries and has taken on the Korean name of Jimin.
“I identify as Korean. That’s just my culture. That’s my home country. That’s exactly how I look now,” they said on Twitter.
In a longer video posted on YouTube, the newly named Jimin said “I have been very confused about her I identify… I am going to come out today and say that I’ve been transitioning. I have been very unhappy about who I am deep down…for the first time in my life I feel beautiful…I am coming out as non-binary. I don’t feel like I identify as male or female. I’m just in the middle.”
