THE South Korean actor Yong-soo, one of the stars of the series “Squid Game”, is being prosecuted for sexual assault in 2017, the prosecution announced today to AFP. The 78-year-old actor became in January the first South Korean to be honored with a Golden Globe, which was awarded to him for his role as the vulnerable old man with the number “001” in his dystopian thriller Netflix.
According to media reports, South Korean prosecutors formally charged him yesterdayThursday, for inappropriate touching of a woman’s body in 2017. The actor was released.
That information is “not inaccurate,” an official at the Suwon prosecutor’s office in the southern suburbs of Seoul told AFP, without elaborating.
According to the South Korean media cited by APE-MPE, the country’s culture ministry subsequently decided to discontinue an advertising campaign featuring Oh Yong-soo.
‘Squid Game’, a dark and violent indictment of the perversions of capitalism, in which the poor kill each other during cruel children’s games in the hope of making millions, has been watched by tens of millions of people since its release in 2021 and remains from the most popular Netflix series.
