Canadian actor, Saint Von Colucci, succumbed to death while undergoing surgery to look like BTS’ member Jimin.
The actor had gone through 12 plastic surgeries and had spent over USD 220,000–including a facelift, a nose job, and an eye lift, among others.
According to Page Six, he had surgery on Saturday to remove the jaw implants he received in November of last year. He was apparently advised of the risks associated with the procedure. Colucci got an infection after the procedure and was immediately intubated. He passed away a few hours later.
“It’s very tragic and very unfortunate,” Colucci’s spokesperson, Eric Blake, told the publication. He went on to say that the actor ‘didn’t like’ his very ‘square jaw and chin’. He thought it was ‘very wide’ and was insecure about his looks.
Previously, Colucci had dark blond hair and blue eyes and was 6 feet tall. “It was extremely difficult for him to find work in South Korea, and he felt very discriminated against because of his Western appearance,” Blake alleged. He also stated that Colucci starred in the Korean drama series, “Pretty Lies”, as BTS singer Jimin. The show will premiere in October of this year.
Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time someone has sought to look like Jimin by going under the knife. Oli London, an internet personality, has already made news for getting 32 operations to look like the K-pop sensation.
