He was accused in December 2021 of inappropriately touching a woman in 2017. Police had closed the case in April without filing charges but prosecutors reopened the case following a request from the victim.

Oh, who plays Oh Il-nam on the Netflix hit, Squid Game, has denied the charges.

"I just held her hand to guide the way around the lake," Oh told Korean news broadcaster JTBC.

"I apologized because [the person] said she wouldn't make a fuss about it but it doesn't mean that I admit the charges."
