A 29-year-old British man who loves Jimin from BTS took his love of the K-pop singer to the next level. Oli London became famous recently after he underwent over $150,000 in plastic surgery to look like the K-pop idol Jimin. However, in a truly bizarre ceremony at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, London married a life-size cardboard cutout of Jimin, reports the Daily Mail.
“It was such an emotional ceremony,” London told the Daily Mail. “I felt very emotional. Jimin is my idol. I’ve spent a lot of money on surgery to look like him, and now I’ve actually married him.
The ceremony in Sin City was hosted by Ron Decar, the owner of the Viva Las Vegas Weddings. He dressed as Elvis Presley and drove London, his friend Angelique ‘Frenchy’ Morgan, and the cutout of Jimin to the chapel.
After a short performance by Decar, he pronounced London and the cutout of Jimin “partners in life.” London planted a nice sensual kiss onto Jimin to seal the deal.
“This is the happiest day of my life,” London said. “Marrying Park Ji-min was always my dream, so I’m super, super happy now to have married him and it’s finally official.
“I’ve even got the certificate to prove it, signed by Elvis Presley, the king of rock and roll, himself.”
Although the ceremony was for show, BTS fans were not happy with London for his odd ceremony. They called him out on social media but London replied that people were free to love anyone or anything.
Oli London became obsessed with BTS in 2013. Since then, he’s undergone numerous plastic surgeries to look like his idol Jimin.
However, it wasn’t until Barcroft TV profiled him in 2018 that he became famous.
“I want my entire lifestyle to revolve around K-pop and I want my entire look to look like Jimin the lead singer of BTS because for me he is perfection, his jaw shape, his lips, his voice, everything,” he said.
Oli London will appear on the Dr. Phil show on January 9th.
