‘Squid Game’ star Oh Young Soo has been charged with indecent assault.
On November 25, it was reported that the Seongnam branch of the Suwon District Prosecutor’s Office charged Oh Young-soo without custody the previous day for indecent assault. Oh Young Soo is accused of inappropriately touching a woman’s body in mid-2017.
The police received the victim’s complaint in December 2021 and sent the documents relevant to the indictment to higher authorities in February 2022. Upon the prosecution’s request for a supplementary investigation, the police interviewed witnesses, reviewed lawyers’ opinions and decided not to transfer the case in April.
With the victim appealing the police decision, the prosecution has since re-investigated the case. During the prosecution’s investigation, Oh Young-soo reportedly denied the allegations.
Oh Young Soo commented via JTBC, “I held her hand to guide the way around the lake. I apologized because [the person] She said she wouldn’t make a fuss about it but that doesn’t mean I admit the charges.” However, the prosecution saw that they had evidence to support the allegations of harassment and referred the case to trial.
Oh Young Soo appeared in the Netflix series “Squid Game” as Oh Il Nam, who suffers from a brain tumor, and won the award for Best Supporting Actor in the TV category at Golden Global Award In the United States in January this year.
