Saint Von Colucci, aged 22, passed away on Sunday, April 23rd, at a hospital in South Korea due to complications arising from cosmetic procedures he underwent a few months prior. Lets hear his story ->
Von Colucci spent $220,000 on 12 plastic surgeries so he could play the K-pop star for a US streaming network.
Von Colucci, who stood 6 feet tall and weighed 182 pounds with dark blonde hair and blue eyes, was “very insecure” about his looks.
Von Colucci had 12 cosmetic procedures over the last year, including jaw surgery, implants, a face lift, a nose job, eye lift, an eyebrow lift, a lip reduction & some other minor surgeries.
Despite knowing the risks involved in jaw implant surgery - which involves altering the shape of the natural jaw & inserting implants, he still opted to undergo the procedure.
He was displeased with the shape of his square jawline and chin, which he believed were too wide, and desired a V-shaped jawline like many Asians.
He underwent surgery to remove jaw implants but developed an infection leading to complications & passed away a few hours later despite being intubated.
He moved from Canada to South Korea in 2019 to pursue a career in the music industry, where he worked as a trainee for one of the country's top entertainment companies.
His publicist revealed that he struggled to find work in South Korea due to discrimination based on his Western looks and was insecure about his facial appearance.
He acted as an international student in the Korean drama 'Pretty Lies', which he started filming in June and completed shooting in December.
