Yoo Seung-joon cast in new Jackie Chan moviePosted: February 6, 2009
Deported pop act, Yoo Seung-joon (aka Steve Yoo) has been cast in a big budget 80 billion won action movie with Jackie Chan. Directed by Jackie Chan and Sheng Ding (“The Underdog Knight”), filming will begin this month on the 10th somewhere in China.
Unfortunately for Steve, many netizens feel that he should have done his service to his country by entering the military. Instead, he chose to chicken out and run to the U.S. So no matter how manly he looks with those bulging biceps, in the eyes of Korea, he ain’t a man.
Yoo Seung-joon dodged the mandatory military service 7 years ago.
Steve is under a 7 year contract wiht JC Group International, which is Jackie Chan’s personal entertainment company.
