‘Squid Game’ star Oh Young Soo charged with indecent assault + actor denies allegations

‘Squid Game’ star Oh Young Soo has been charged with indecent assault.

On November 25, it was reported that the Suwon District Prosecutor’s Office in Seongnam had charged Oh Young Soo without arrest the day before on charges of indecent assault. Oh Young Soo was accused of inappropriately touching a woman’s body in mid-2017.

The police received the victim’s notification in December 2021, and in February 2022, handed over the related documents together with the opinion of the indictment to higher-level authorities. At the request of the prosecutor’s office for additional investigation, the police questioned witnesses, considered the opinions of lawyers and decided not to transfer the case in April.

As the victim appealed the police decision, the prosecution has since re-examined the case. During the prosecution’s investigation, Oh Young Soo denied the allegations.

Oh Young Soo commented via JTBC, “I was just holding 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’m admitting to the charges. Despite this, the prosecution felt it had secured evidence to support the harassment allegation and took the case to court.

Oh Young Soo appeared in the Netflix series “Squid Game” as Oh Il Nam, who suffers from a brain tumor and won the Best Supporting Actor award in the TV category at the Golden Globes in the United States in January this year.
