Yoo Seung Joon will be filing an appeal against the upkeeping of his ban.

He is currently blacklisted from ever entering the country after evading military service by getting a citizenship in the United States on the sly, and has been trying to fight it as of late. On September 30, the Seoul administrative court upheld Yoo Seung Joon's entry ban into South Korea. The court stated that they can't allow entry because if they did, it would demoralize the soldiers currently serving and set a precedent for teenagers to avoid conscription.

After consideration, Yoo Seung Joon and his attorney decided to submit an appeal against the decision. Yoo Seung Joon argued that out of the 17,229 that evaded military service in the last 5 years, it was unfair to keep only Yoo Seung Joon out of the country, especially for 15 years. 


What do you think of the situation?

    Since only an armistice has been signed between the two countries, North and South Korea are technically still at war. It's understandable why South punishes those who evade obligatory military service, especially with North Korea as their neighbour.

    He was just saying 17,229 people evading to serve the country, but *who knows* he was the only one who would changed his nationality. He even got a special visa to travel outside the S.Korea because he PROMISED he would comeback and serve the militery. Little did they know, he got naturalization by getting US. citizenship. He betrayed his country.

    I do think they, one way or another, were punished as well. YSJ might've been more harshly punished as he sought citizenship in another country – a rather severe way of evading one's obligatory military service, IMO.

    the problem is that 17,229 like he said did not evade it, they get exception

    Damn dude, just give it up. You're never going to be allowed back permanently. You're making yourself look more and more pathetic every time.

    I am sick of hearing about this guy and his plight to reenter Korea. I am against mandatory military service so I really shouldn't have an opinion but my thoughts are since he dodged his responsibility to his country then he needs to humble himself and serve out his punishment.

    Can you be any more shallow? Honestly, I'm ashamed that you call yourself an "ARMY."

    Even if he is able to enter South Korea, isn't he ashamed of himself. And it's not like the public thinks highly of him either. Just stop already.

    With the muscle he has, you think someone will come and harass him?
