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.

he IS an american citizen. the south korean officials won't let him enter the country, so no, he can't go wherever the f he wants

He used to be a really popular singer when he debuted and I think the issue was mainly that even though everyone knew he was getting his us citizenship he made a promise that he would still go through military service....I'm not sure why it even matters but yeah...

he has been saying that he WILL def go to the military. in sk it is a big big biiiiig deal. he said that all the time, but then got his us citizenship, so he can't go anymore and that was a really bad move. the sk thought he just did that to avoid the military and since he is a public figure at that time, he got a heavy punishment and they prob wanted to set an example on how important military service is for them.

DZico Saturday, August 13, 2016

can I ask why does he want to go back to korea ! I am sure life in america is much better then korea anyway .

slebony DZico Saturday, August 13, 2016

well, obviously he was famous back then, he wants to have a career in skorea

MufffleCake DZico Saturday, August 13, 2016

There are rumors that he's going back to korea to evade a bigger tax he has to pay if he is in USA or China,

DZico MufffleCake Saturday, August 13, 2016

DZico slebony Saturday, August 13, 2016

DZico Saturday, August 13, 2016

no one should be forced to carry a weapon , if he didn't want to enter the military he shouldn't be forced to .

slebony DZico Saturday, August 13, 2016

Hopefully he will be able to apologize at least... What he did was wrong and he acted like a coward but he should be able to at least apologize.

slebony iisstf28 Saturday, August 13, 2016

he apologized many many times. one time he did a live broadcast, apologized and cried and when they ended the broadcast, they didn't realize the mic was still on. you should google that, it was so unsincere
