In January 2002, Liu Chengjun publicly promised to escape military service in South Korea by acquiring American nationality, which caused public outrage in South Korea. After that, he was listed on the list of forbidden entry by relevant government departments. In order to return to South Korea, Liu Chengjun sued the Consulate General of South Korea in Los Angeles who refused to issue a visa. Although he was defeated in the first and second trials in succession However, Liu Chengjun continued to appeal and finally won in todays final judgment of the high court. The Seoul High Court ruled that the South Korean Consulate General in Los Angeles should lift the visa ban on Liu Chengjun.
South Koreas military affairs department had previously said that no matter what kind of judgment the court made in the lawsuit against Liu Chengjun and the South Korean Consulate General in Los Angeles, it would not change the status quo of Liu Chengjuns being banned from entering the country. However, a previous questionnaire survey showed that up to 70% of South Korean nationals still opposed Liu Chengjuns return to South Korea. LV Dongyin / copyright mydaily
