A ‘transracial’ influencer has revealed they want to have a penis reduction procedure so that they look ‘100 percent Korean’, having already spent an estimated $250,000 on around 20 surgeries in a bid to look like BTS star Jimin.
Oli London, who is non-binary, has previously defended themself for identifying as Korean after telling social media followers last year that they had undergone ‘racial transitional surgery’.
Now, London has booked in for a full face and neck lift in Turkey in the coming weeks – and is also eyeing up even more drastic measures.
Speaking to Newsweek, London – who was born white and British – said: "I don't want people to get offended by this, but in Korea, [the average] penis is like 3.5 inches, and I get trolled all the time. People say, 'Oh, you can't be Korean. You're not 100 percent Korean,' and I just want to be 100 percent Korean.”
The social media star did not provide any proof to back up his claims, or stipulate whether the figure provided related to an erect or non-erect penis.
A study on the ‘penile size of Korean men’ from the Department of Urology at the Capital Military Hospital in Seoul, Korea, found that the mean length of the penis in a non-erected state was 8cm (3.15 inches) and 12.7cm (5 inches) when erect.
According to Lloyds Pharmacy, the global average length of a flaccid penis ranges from 7 to 10cm (2.8 to 3.9 inches), while the average length of an erect penis ranges from 12 to 16cm (4.7 to 6.3 inches).
London continued: "I would even have a penis reduction so I'm, like, the Korean average. That's how far I'm willing to go. I can have it done in Thailand, and it will cost between $6,000 and $8,000. Thailand's cheaper.
"And to be honest, they do specialize in those kind of things in Thailand, because they have a lot of sex changes and stuff.
"It's very rare, because most people will get a penis enlargement. I know it does sound weird. I just want to be 100 percent Korean. My entire face will be Korean, I've done my chest. Like, what can I do next? I don't know.
"Like, my hands are too big... [It] just makes me feel closer to the country. I'm actually booked in for February 22. Then I'll be happy [with my looks]. The thing is, when I do surgery, I'm happy for like two months, and then I want more."
After undergoing surgery last summer, London posted a video to respond to comments online, saying many people 'don't understand'.
They said: "I know a lot of people don't understand me, but I do identify as Korean and I do look Korean now, I do feel Korean...
"That's just my culture. That's my home country. That's exactly how I look now. And I also identify as Jimin, that's my career name."
London continued: "If you didn't know who I was, you would just think I was a Korean person, not a man or a woman, just a person.
"And, you know, people might think, 'Oh, I'm such a joke.' But you know what, guys? You don't understand. If you're trapped in the wrong body your whole life, you don't understand."
