‘Squid Game’ Star Charged With Sexual Assault

O Yeong-su, the star of 'Squid Game', has been indicted on sexual misconduct charges and was released without detention.

On Friday, prosecutors in Suwon, South Korea revealed that he was charged earlier for inappropriately touching a woman in mid-2017.

The alleged victim filed a complaint against Oh in December last year. Authorities closed the case in April this year but reopened it again at the victim’s request, the Yonhap news agency reported.

When asked about it by the prosecutors, Oh denied the allegations. His image has surely taken a hit after the charges surfaced.

Oh said: “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.”
