South Korean talent is taking over the world. Besides BTS, one of the biggest revolutions came with Netflix squid game. The series became a global phenomenon when it released in 2021. It introduced us to a bunch of amazing characters and one of them was Oh II-nam played by actor Oh Yeong-su. He was one of the contenders in the competition that viewers supported throughout. And we even got an interesting twist on it. While Oh Yeong-su’s return as Oh II-nam was already unlikely in Season 2, it has now become totally impossible as the 78-year-old Korean actor has been indicted for indecent assault. . But the actor denied these claims.
Last January, Oh Yeong-su became the first South Korean actor to win a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor in a series category. Although this achievement brought him great fame, a recent report will ensure a lot of negative publicity for the actor. The South Korean prosecutor told AFP on Friday (November 25th) that Oh Young-su had been charged with sexual misconduct and indecent assault.

Oh Yeong-Su denies the allegations
According to local reports, the actor was charged by the South Korean prosecutor’s office on Thursday for allegedly touching a woman’s body inappropriately in 2017. Then an official from the Suwon District Prosecutor’s Office told the AFP that everything that had been reported by the local media “is not factually incorrect”, because the actor was the culprit. But, Oh Yeong-su denied the allegations saying he only held the woman’s hands to guide her around the lake. But the secure evidence suggests otherwise. So things are going to be tough for the old man from now on.

Not the first South Korean actor to be charged
It’s not the first time something like this has happened in the Southern Quran film industry, as big names like late filmmaker Kim Ki-duk and actors Cho Jae-hyun and Oh Dal-su have all faced allegations of sexual assault in the past. . And now Oh Yeong-su seems to have joined the list. It will be interesting to see if the actor would be able to muster a solid defense if he was wrongfully charged. Still, needless to say, we won’t get any flashbacks from him in Squid Game season 2.
