According to Starnews, the Suwon District Court will call Oh Young Soo on February 3rd for a trial. The Golden Globes winner is accused of making inappropriate physical contact with a woman in 2017.
The woman filed a complaint with the police in 2021, accusing him of touching her against her will in 2017. The police didn’t hand over the case to the prosecution, and she reported him again, resulting in him getting reinvestigated over the case.
It was reported that the actor denied the allegations during the investigation, saying that “everything is the woman said didn’t make sense.” However, the prosecution indicted him without detention in November of last year on charges of sexual assault.
Meanwhile, Oh Young Soo became the first South Korean actor to win a Golden Globe after being named as the top supporting actor for his role in Netflix’s juggernaut Squid Game.
