Following several speculations in the ongoing legal battle, it has been reported that singer Yoo Seung Joon has indeed lost the lawsuit in his second and final trial, which was held on February 23.

According to Judge Kim of Seoul's Supreme Court, he dismissed Yoo Seung Joon's appeal of filing a lawsuit for his visa denial and restricted him from entering Korea.

In September 2015, the singer requested an overseas visa through the Consult General of LA; however, his request was rejected. During that time, a representative of Yoo stated, "It has been over 14 years as his visa application continues to get declined. It is his right to fight back regarding his entry into his country."

The first trial was held in September of last year, where his demand was turned down. The judge at that time commented, "If Mr. Yoo were to enter and resume his entertainment activities, much of the military personnel here would be deeply affected by his actions."

Meanwhile, Yoo Seung Joon applied for a U.S citizenship back in January of 2002 and pleaded numerous times saying he would "serve in the military". It seems he is now permanently banned from even requesting any legal appeals.

Yes, unfortunately the US glorifies war. Me, being female, volunteered to serve my time. But if it was mandatory, I still would have served my time. Like I said in a previous post, actions have consequences and he should accept what his actions did.

True, here in the US we have had some draft dodgers, to include Bowe Bergdah that is still undergoing trial here in our country. But a lot of Vietnam deserters who went over to Canada came back here after everything calmed down. But I am glad that they turned down his request to re-enter Korea. Actions have consequences.

Honestly, not only did he purposely dodge the enlistment by proactively taking steps to apply for American citizenship to evade enlistment, but he also made it worse by talking publicly about how important military service was and saying he would perform his military was like a double stab in the back. And yes, if the US had mandatory service or for any military service for that matter and you evaded it in the way he did, you'd also be slapped with desertion. Plus, they gave him a second chance and he outright rejected it and said he didn't want to return or perform his service. So no, I have zero sympathy for him.

I don't really emphasize with him. It seems like he just wants to go back to resume his entertainment career. His overall image seems a bit outdated and I cant stand how he's crying on camera to try to get sympathy.

Especially since Kpop is much much bigger nowadays, it seems like he's trying to use that advantage to gain international fans.

Violet086 k_kid Friday, February 24, 2017

I agree and the way he's acting is making him look kind of pathetic....

in other article, he make an apology streaming video but he cursing after the video off. not knowing that the audio still on. so i think he dont deserve any sympaty. i guess.

Yea, everyone here is bitching. But if military service was mandatory in the US which could become reality with record low enlistments. You would dodge it too. Youd have to grow up and face reality and facts is most people dont because they fear reality.So yes, I feel for him. I think its been 14 years. He isnt a kid but a grown man now. They give rapist less time than him.

most men in the US have to put their name into a conscription cloud when they apply to college just in case there is a war and the US needs bodies to spare. with the way the US glorifies war to a certain extent, finding people to fight won't be a problem. this man committed treason against his country, he deserves everything that's coming to him. i don't feel for him because he was a grown man trying to act slick for the past 14 years,. i deliberately tried to play the system and this is his punishment. he dug his own grave, nobody did that to him but himself

The Draft is for both men and women that went into effect last year. US glorifies war? No it doesnt , Americans today are non back bone people who make word, definitions , genders...etc who hate anything real and scary. If they wouldnt have a problem getting people to fight then enlistment number wouldnt be dead. And yes, beleive it or not if your an american mandatory enlistment isnt as far fetched as you beleive. If you under 26 , i think soon your bubble may be busted very soon with possible war with china, russia, and middle eastern countries.

zero_red Nadjeortez Saturday, February 25, 2017

i didn't know that they extended the draft to women, but right now the names that are in data for people to be drafted are male. i feel that the chances for conscription will be low because i don't feel that any american with common sense will agree to fight in a war that could be avoided

cmerle1 Nadjeortez Saturday, February 25, 2017

Since when did the US start drafting women? That's news to me as I'm female and we don't register for the draft.

Alastair Nadjeortez Saturday, February 25, 2017

Do you live in the US bro? If women had to write their names on a conscription from for the draft it would make headlines. There's no ruling of the sort.

lolita98 Nadjeortez Saturday, February 25, 2017

well, korea already give him second chance but he turn it down and claim dont wanna going back anymore. so why would they letting him back now?. after 14 years?. nah, it will make bigger impact on korean young man. korea make right decision by forbid him came back. otherwise their citizen will avoid service same way as he did.

chaelicen Friday, February 24, 2017

when he could ACTUALLY serve in the military, korean citizens + gov't + judges were like: ok fam, we forgive you. if you come back now & serve your time, we're chill BUT he was like: never coming back !!! and suddenly now he's like: omo i'm so sorry and !!! how convienent, now that he's PAST the age ?? smh. karma.

lechuga Friday, February 24, 2017

Damn... Well if i were a judge I'll tell him he has one final chance to prove be "really" regrets his past. Even though he's past the age to serve, just for giggles, I'll fell him if he wants to come back he needs to give up his u.s citizenship and serve 10 years in tbe military. If he takes it imma be like "shit i didn't plan for you to say yes" and dismiss the case. And that's why im not a judge 😂

lunachick415 Friday, February 24, 2017

Boohoo, dude. You don't get to dodge as well as openly state that you don't plan on going back, then later change your mind and think Korea should accept you with opened arms after you publicly abandoned the country. Can't have it both ways. Either you're in or out, and you yourself straight up said you were out. You made your bed. Now lie in it.
