Squid Game actor indicted on sexual misconduct charges

Oh Yeong-su, who won a Golden Globe for his work on the well-liked Netflix miniseries Squid Game, has apparently been accused of sexual assault.

According to reports, the Korean star was freed without being imprisoned.

In a Variety article, prosecutors in the nearby city of Suwon said that Oh had been charged the day before.

The 78-year-old Oh was accused of groping a woman’s body indecently in the middle of 2017.

Oh received a complaint from the alleged victim in December of last year.

The prosecutors’ office revived the investigation at the request of the accused after the police allegedly dismissed it in April without filing any charges.

According to the report, Oh denied the charges during the investigation.

“I just held her hand to guide the way around the lake. I apologized because [the person] said she wouldn’t make a fuss about it but it doesn’t mean that I admit the charges,” Oh said in a statement to Korean broadcaster JTBC.

Oh portrayed the oldest contestant in Netflix’s “Squid Game”.

He was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series and won the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a series, miniseries, or television film for his performance.
