Yoo loses bid to enter South Korea

Korean-American singer Steve Yoo, who was vilified for giving up his South Korean citizenship to avoid military service, lost his legal bid yesterday to be allowed back in the country.

As he was about to be called up in 2002, Yoo, better known in South Korea as Yoo Seung Joon, became a naturalised United States citizen. The South Korean government considered it an act of desertion and he was deported and banned from returning for life.

He had filed a lawsuit with the Seoul Administrative Court, challenging the decision of a South Korean consulate in the US to deny him a visa. But the court ruled against him yesterday.
