Von Colucci moved to South Korea from Canada in 2019. He was working at a trainee for one of the three big South Korean Entertainment companies, his publicist told DailyMail.com 

‘Its very tragic and very unfortunate,’ said his publicist Eric Blake, who had been working with the young actor since March of 2022.

He said Van 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 and some other minor surgeries.

He told DailyMail.com his client knew how risky the jaw implant surgery was, since they reshape your natural jaw and put implants in them, but he still wanted to get it.

‘He was very insecure about his looks,’ Blake said. ‘H had a very square jawline and chin and he didn’t like the shape of it because he thought it was too wide an wanted a V-shape, the shape many Asians have.’
