Welp, grandpa better be ready to retire from acting because age and circumstances for a return are not on his side. K-actor O Yeong Su, best known as the grandpa/player 001 in Squid Game and recently won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, has been charged by the Seoul authorities for sexual misconduct. It stems from a woman claiming he inappropriately touched her in mid-2017. She went to the police in December 2021, it was investigated but did not move towards charging him.
