Can Yoo Seung Jun come back to Korea?Posted: June 22, 2007
Once a pop sensation, Yoo Seung Jun made the biggest mistake of his life in 2002. To avoid his military duties in Korea, he became a naturalized US citizen, but as expected, this did not fly with our fellow Koreans. Many felt betrayed and cheated since he promoted himself by consistently stating that “as a healthy male citizen of Korea, I plan to go to the army.” To make the long story short, Mr. Yoo was deported back to the states when he came back to Korea with his spanking new US passport.
A lot has happened since then. Yoo Seung Jun got married, had a child and started his musical career in China. He’s doing okay in China, but it’s obvious that he wants to come back to his motherland and he’s testing the water in various ways. He tried to do his own version of Newlyweds on Mnet, but that fell threw. And his latest strategy is to pour his heart out to the public in an attempt to make them understand why he made the wrong decision. Yoo’s interview was aired on tvN, but the timing couldn’t be any worse. The public is currently disgusted with the special treatment celebs and rich chaebols receive when it comes to military duties as they watch Psy’s investigation unfold, so forgiving Yoo Seung Jun is currently out of the question. But do you think that he should be allowed to come back to Korea?
