Well clearly his future for a career is in Korea, so even if there weren't the current difficulties between Japan and Korea, it would have made sense for him to eventually become a Korean citizen in all likelihood. The current troubles between the nations though might have made this a bigger priority to complete quickly so it doesn't jeopardize work opportunities in Korea.

That's a bold move. Renouncing the citizenship of your home country is not an easy thing to live with.
