The fourth plea date between Yoo Seung Joon and Los Angeles consul general took place on August 12.  If you recall, the former South Korean superstar evaded military service by getting his American citizenship, resulting in a prohibition from reentering the country, which he is now attempting to fight. 


On this day, Yoo Seung Joon's side stated, "He had no intention whatsoever to acquire his American citizenship with the purpose of avoiding the military.  He merely underwent the process of getting his citizenship unilaterally."  The LA consul general side stated, "He tried to get his citizenship in the time before his military enlistment.  The claim that his goal was not to evade [service] does not make sense."

Yoo Seung Joon's side stated, "As expected, he is regretting what he did at the time.  He is sorry for disappointing the people of Korea.  This lawsuit is not for citizenship but for the ability to enter the country."


Regarding the suspicions of hate comments and tax through his appearance on Afreeca TV to say his apologies before, Yoo Seung Joon's side stated, "We thought it was a shame that Yoo Seung Joon was receiving harm from the spreading of unconfirmed truths."


The L.A side said, "We're curious as to the validity of your claim that you have the right to explain your military evasion in Korea no matter what.  You can, for sure, express your stance through a Korean agency located in the States even without going to South Korea. We also question whether it's really necessary for you to have an interview with a Korean media outlet."


Looks like the final decision will be revealed on September 30.
