2020.10.13 페이스북 트위터






As a result of the Star News interview on the 7th, a Korean-American singer Yoo Seung Jun recently filed an administrative lawsuit again asking the Seoul Administrative Court to cancel the refusal to issue him a visa. Legal representative of Yoo also briefly replied to Star News that "Yoo filed a lawsuit with the Seoul Administrative Court because of visa denial."


It is said that Yoo Seung-jun was denied visa issuance by the government in July, and the reason is due to The Law in Ethnic Koreans Abroad 

He was suspicious of evading military service in the process of acquiring US citizenship prior to enlisting in the military in 2002. Eventually, he protested against being banned from entering the country pursuant to Article 11 of the Immigration Control Act by the Military Manpower Administration and the Ministry of Justice.

He argued that "Please cancel the issuance rejection,", filing a lawsuit.


After failed attempts to enter the country, he filed a lawsuit against the South Korean Consulate General in Los Angeles in October 2015 for refusing to grant him a visa. Yoo reportedly applied for overseas Korean.
