It appears the battle is far from over, as singer Yoo Seung Joon continues to fight for his stance.

According to a judicial affiliate on March 7, it has been revealed that Yoo Seung Joon will be submitting a petition of appeal to the Supreme Court. The deadline for the petition submission is March 13.

Yoo Seung Joon's legal representative stated, "After much discussion, it seems Yoo Seung Joon will not be backing down so easily and will continue to push through until the end. He will be submitting a petition of appeal within this week."

On February 23, the singer had lost his trial which was held in LA, causing much commotion. Furthermore, Yoo Seung Joon's attorney is planning to present the same question offered during the second trial. He stated, "Why is Yoo Seung Joon the only one prohibited from entering the country" and "With the original trial held in 2002, only pertaining to the standard judgment I would also like to ask if that still stands in the current state [2016]?"

Meanwhile, Yoo Seung Joon was banned from entering Korea ever since denouncing his Korean residency back in 2002 and instead obtaining a U.S. citizenship, in order to dodge serving in the military.

Netizens commented, "Seeing that he has come this far, it seems he has a clear motive this time," "Yoo Seung Joon still going at it!!" "What does he want to do in Korea, he should just live peacefully where he is," "My goodness, why does he keep doing this?" "Get lost", and more.

"Get lost" sounds about right. And LOL @ the questions. Not that the outcome would ever change, but no wonder he lost. His attorney knows no shit! "Why is he the only one prohibited from entering the country?" Well.. have you seen anyone else being appointed as spokesperson for military enlistment, promised to enlist when the time comes, then chickened out and FLEE the country to gain citizenship somewhere else, and REPEATEDLY stated he had no plans to return (not until recently, when he was deemed too old to be enlisted)?? No shit, Sherlock.

I feel no sympathy. He knew what he was doing. He made his bed. Now he has to lay in it

I don't think this guy realizes just how much Korea hates him. I don't know what his motivation is, but he's not going to win this. Even if he was allowed in Korea, I wouldn't bet on him living for more than a few months before he was run out or... otherwise removed. Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Why AK still covering this, nothings changed. Not to mention most people here won't even know him...

Dude... just don't.

Just give up. Damn. Tired of reading his pathetic failures and stories. He fucked up and shouldn't be pardoned. MOVE THE F**K ON.

I dont know too much about this, but I feel sligthly offended reading all the comments about why he would do this. First of all he probably has family in Korea. Also,  people work in different ways. Some have a strong attachment to their home. For example my dad moved far away when he turned 18, and then lived there for about fifteen or twenty years. Still, after all that time, he missed his home city so much that he convinced my mom to move and settle there. He had made many new friends and lost contact with most people from his home city but he still had that strong attachment. I think it's similar with Yoo Seung Joon, and if it is he is of course going to do everything within his power to get back to Korea. Also, his mistake happened a long time ago. I'm sure he has had time to think about it and regret the choice he made.

I'm not Korean nor am I patriotic but I do support the decision of not letting him back inside the country. He got US ciitzenship at the last minute to avoid his mandatory military service and when they gave him a 2nd chance to serve he dodge it again. He came back wanting to go back to SK after he was too old to serve the mandatory service. At this point it's a moral/ethical issue of lifting his ban. If they let him back, people will see they can dodge their service and at some point they know they'll be allowed back into the country. People have to halt everything to perform their mandatory service (really doesn't make sense why it's only men since like 1/3 of North Koreans go into the army but I digress) and it's not fair that he get's a free pass b/c he's a public figure. They're most likely making an example of him with the message being if you dodge the mandatory draft you'll be banned from entering the country.

You don't get it. He is HATED by Korea. He betrayed the country on such a basic and primal level that he will never be forgiven and he needs to accept this. He chose to promote his enlistment, he chose to run from it like a coward, he chose to publically say he'd never return and he chose to wait until AFTER he could have been made to serve to try and return. No sympathy for this man at all.

I don't think people would believe they could dodge their military service, I know receiving the same punishment he did would scare me. This just seems very very medieval to me. But I am from the country where people say our prisons look like hotels (norway). In 2011 (I think) this guy went out and killed about 70 norwegian people because he wanted to protest our immigration laws. Many people believe that he is treated too nicely, but I believe he should still be treated as human. Punishment isn't for the satisfaction of those who watch, it is to secure that the criminal or someone else doesn't do the same thing again. I guess it pains me that so many people misunderstand how a justice system should work. There's an episode called "White Bear" on a show called "Black Mirror" that is a great example of what I'm trying to convey.

The Justice system of any country exists to accomplish two things. Some go for more, but these two things are the must. Segregation and deterrence. His punishment accomplishes both.

I'm sorry, but I think it's high time this guy gave up... It's been FOURTEEN YEARS!
