K-pop and weeb super fandom has reached a new level of cringe as teenagers are now having surgeries done to look more like their fave Asian.
Kids and teenagers with rich parents, too much time on their hands, and not enough brains are willing to have surgeries just to look like their favourite anime characters or K-pop stars.
Oli London, 29, became a bit of an internet celebrity when he spent close to a quarter million dollars on having work done to look like Jimin from popular boy band K-pop group BTS.
Oli London admittedly had a celebrity crush on the K-pop star and wanted to feel closer to him by trying to look exactly like him. But his quest for perfection became his addiction and Oli spent 5 years — and counting — going under the surgeons knife trying to look like Jimin.
Now this is becoming common place among diehard anime and BTS fans with rich parents.
In 2014 a 24-year-old Brazilian male named Max, underwent 10 procedures to give himself eyelids reminiscent to Asian ethnicity, and make his eyes appear smaller.

He later changed his name from Max to Xiahn Nishi and discussed his new identity on the news.
“It was the first time this procedure was done,” Nishi said in a fake Asian accent in the interview from his home in New Hamberg, south of Brazil.
“I think I look handsomer like this. Maybe some people think it’s not but I think it is.”
Now more, and more, people going to get these kinds of surgeries done just so they can look more like their favourite anime characters or BTS members.

The big question is, is this racist? Some Asian women undergo surgery to look more western, but not to this extreme. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below
