Canadian actor reportedly died after 12 plastic surgeries to look like BTS’ Jimin
On April 24, British media outlet Daily Mail reported that a Canadian actor had died in a hospital in South Korea.
The actor in question, Saint Von Colucci, 22, has reportedly had 12 plastic surgeries to look like BTS’ Jimin.
Daily Mail goes on to explain that the young man died on the morning of April 23 due to complications following an operation performed a few months earlier.
Eric Blake, the actor’s alleged publicist, reportedly revealed: “He underwent surgery on Saturday night to remove the implants from his jawbone that he had put in in November.
The young artist… got an infection from the implants, was intubated due to complications and died a few hours later. »
Colucci reportedly left Canada for South Korea in 2019 to pursue a career in the K-pop industry, Eric Blake said.
He spent $220,000 on 12 cosmetic procedures including a face lift, nose job, lip reduction, eye lift and other minor surgeries.
Blake added that the actor is aware of the risks of jawbone surgery but insisted on going ahead with the procedure because he was “not sure about his looks.”
“He had a very square jaw and chin and he didn’t like the shape because he felt it was too wide. He wanted a V-shape, the shape that many Asians have.
He was very insecure about his face and it was very difficult for him to find a job in South Korea and he felt very discriminated against because of his western appearance.” said Mr. Blake.
It was reported that Mr. Colucci was in South Korea to star in Korean K-drama Pretty Lies. He played one of the main characters of an international student. The show is slated for release on a US streaming service in October.
Reports of Colucci’s death circulated on Korean media sites after the Daily Mail report.
However, some consider this information to be incorrect.
On Twitter, one netizen questioned the accuracy of the facts, saying there was no tangible evidence.
First, iel explains that the photo of the actor posted by the Daily Mail could have been generated by an AI.
The agency HYPE PR, which is said to represent Saint Von Colucci, does not appear to be real either. His website was created less than a month ago and has no information.
The phone number on the website isn’t responding, and after letting it ring, the user received an SMS reply saying “Wtf do u want”.
Strange if it really is a PR company or just a random number.
Another strange thing, Saint Von Colucci cannot be found on the internet. There have been about 2-3 mentions of the name in the past, but each time it has been extremely vague and the photos have been extremely blurry. There is no way to confirm his identity.
However, the information is still spreading through Korean and global media.
