Oh Yeong-su, who won a Golden Globe for his role in “Squid Game”, was arrested and indicted on charges of sexual misconduct.
Variety reports that the 78-year-old actor was taken into custody and charged on Thursday; he was subsequently released.
Prosecutors in Suwon, a city near Seoul, alleged that Oh “inappropriately touched the body of a woman in mid-2017.”
The alleged victim first filed a complaint against Oh in December 2021, with the case closed the following April. However, the case was later reopened at the victim’s request.
Oh has denied the allegations.
