Among the spectators was Oli London, who was an English teacher in that country. The Youtuber fell in love with Jimin as soon as he saw him and decided he wanted to look like him because he reminded him of a doll.
The British superfan said he was initially amazed at how “perfect” K-pop stars were, especially Jimin.
“I want my whole lifestyle to revolve around K-pop and I want my whole look to be like Jimin, the lead singer of BTS because to me he’s perfection; her jaw shape, her lips, her voice, everything, ”he explained.
He has since had all of the fatty tissue removed from his chest and had a blepharoplasty to “work on his eyelids.” In addition to four rhinoplasties, as well as jaw surgery and a chin implant.
He later asked doctors to add fat to his cheeks to make his eyes appear more almond-shaped.

Moreover, the BTS calls Oli a “sasaeng”. This is a term used for fans of stalkers who show no respect for the privacy of band members… It’s clear, the unusual stories of fans of this band will never end!
