If you have been one of those people who enjoys K-Pop music and loves Korean culture, well, look again. If one really loves Korea, this guy definitely nailed it!
Here’s the catch: This Brazilian man who became seemingly obsessed with Korean culture only just had at best 10 surgeries to make himself look Asian.
The 25-year-old man, once known as Max, popularly called now as “Xiahn,” decided to change his appearance after a year of study in the country.
He was born with blond hair and blue eyes, so Xiahn had to undergo multiple surgeries to give himself single eyelids and permanently closed inner corners of his eyes.
Xiahn told Metro, “As you know, there are thousands of Asian eye styles… I had one major surgery on my eyes and then small procedures to reach the correct appearance.”
This made him spend a whopping $3,100 on his surgeries. Accordingly, the guy also started trying different Asian hair styles with his hair color and starts wearing contact lenses to change the color of his eyes.
Notwithstanding the extreme transformation, the Brazilian still claims that he’s not trying to become Asian. He told the Korean Herald, “I don’t see myself like an Asian… I think I’m something in between.”
It’s up to you to think about this, what do you think about Max’s shocking transformation? Would you consider it too far gone, or just plain practice of freedom of expression?
