A popular idol star in the 90s, Yoo Seung Joon was swept in a major controversy after denouncing his Korean residency and applying for a U.S. citizenship prior to his military enlistment. As a result, he has been deported and banned from entering Korea since 2002. He has taken legal action countless times hoping to lift the ban. Marking sixteen years since his exile from Korea, Yoo Seung Joon once again took to social media to express his unchanging thoughts.
On January 8, Yoo Seung Joon wrote on his Weibo page in Chinese, "Thank you Jackie Chan. I will do my best and never give up."
Currently active in China, Yoo Seung Joon shared photos of himself posing with renown martial artist Jackie Chan in a book he had published. Until 2013, Yoo Seung Joon actively promoted under Jackie's agency as a singer/actor where the two collaborated on various projects.
He also stated, "No matter what people say, I will continue to work hard. 2018 fighting!"
