British Instagram Influencer Oli London Comes Out As Non-Binary Korean After More Than 20 Plastic Surgeries

British Instagram Influencer Oli London Comes Out As Non-Binary Korean After More Than 20 Plastic Surgeries

 

British instagram influencer Oli London says he finally identifies as Korean after undergoing more than 20 surgeries to look like his K-pop idol Park Jimin.

London, who uses the pronouns they/them says he’s super happy to finally “identify as Korean.” Posting a series of videos from his hospital bed, the influencer claims to now be “transracial.”

“Hey, guys. I’m finally Korean. I’ve transitioned,” London said in one video.

“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.”

Reaction to their coming out has been mixed. While many were supportive of London’s decisions others accused them 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.

“Is this not blackface but for Asians or am I trippin lol,” remarked another.

While the instagrammer is yet to respond to the backlash they have retweeted videos of other celebrities discussing their own “transition.”

What do you think? Are you able to transition into another culture or not?
