Squid Game actor O Yeong-su has been indicted on charges of sexual misconduct, it emerges on Friday.
O Yeong-su,78, became the first the South Korean actor to win Golden Globe Awards. He won best TV supporting actor award in 2022 for his role in hit Netflix series “Squid Game.”
O Yeong-su has been indicted on charges of sexual misconduct, judicial officials said Friday.
The Seongnam branch of the Suwon District Prosecutors Office indicted the 78-year-old O without detention Thursday over an allegation that he inappropriately touched the body of a woman in mid-2017, the officials stated.
The case dates back to December last year, when the alleged victim filed a complaint against O with police.
However the Police had closed the case without filing any charge against the actor in April but the prosecution later reopened the investigation at the request of the victim.
