Per Korea JoongAng Daily, the actor was charged by the Seongnam Branch of the Suwon District Prosecutor’s Office and accused of “inappropriately touching” an unnamed woman in 2017. Throughout the investigation, Oh denied all allegations against him. His translated statement read: “I held her hand to direct the way around the lake. I apologized for that [the person] She said she wouldn’t make a fuss about it, but that doesn’t mean I admit the charges.” The prosecution stated that it had obtained evidence of harassment of the victim and would bring the case to trial.
