Actor Oh Young Soo has been excluded from the list of confirmed performers. This is the aftermath of his harassment charge.
According to YTN Star coverage today (Nov 25th), Oh Young Soo was scheduled to perform in the stage play “Love Letter” in Jeonju at Yeonji Hall, Korean Sound Culture Center on January 14th next year. However, the organizers have canceled Oh’s casting after confirming his controversy.
Jeonju MBC, which hosts the Jeonju performance of “Love Letter,” has urgently requested through production and management companies to check whether any actors can stand in for the performance on Jan 14th. Oh Young Soo’s role is currently being shown as “Undecided” on the play’s ticketing site.
On Nov 25th, it was revealed that Oh Young Soo was indicted, which shocked everyone. Criminal Division 2 (chief prosecutor Song Jeong Eun) of the Seongnam branch of the Suwon District Prosecutors’ Office indicted Oh Young Soo without detention on charges of forced harassment on Nov 24th. He was accused of inappropriately touching a woman’s body in 2017. Oh Young Soo reportedly denied the charges in the prosecution investigation.
Meanwhile, Oh Young Soo began acting in 1963 as part of a theater crew called “The Square”. He made his face known through the roles of Temple Master and Old Monk in the movies “A Little Monk” and “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring”, respectively. He appeared as Oh Il Nam in Netflix’s series “Squid Game”, which was released in September last year and caused a global syndrome.
