It was once known that he gave up his American citizenship to join the military and acquired Korean citizenship, but Yoo Gun explained it himself. After being discharged from the military, he confessed, “I kept missing the time to return to the United States because I couldn’t afford to live there, so I changed my nationality to Korean.”
