Actor Oh Dal Su has denied all sexual harassment accusations.
On the 15th, a commenter on an article accused him of repeatedly sexually harassing younger actresses while he was part of a Busan acting troupe. The accuser claimed she had been getting psychological treatment for 20 years since she was sexually harassed by him. Then on the 19th, the commenter accused him once again by saying that he pushed his hand inside her shorts, and put his fingers into her. Both comments have been deleted.
In an official statement, the actor said,
This is actor Oh Dal Su.
First, I'm sorry for causing concerns to so many people because of a scandalous situation.
On February 15th and 19th, an anonymous account wrote a comment on a portal site claiming harassment, and were both deleted. I am writing to make a statement about those.
Those accusations are defintely not true. I did not commit those actions.
As soon as I saw the articles written about those anonymous account, I took time to calmly look back to my life in the early 1990s. I went back to myself in my early 20s, which was 30 years ago, but I did not commit those actions.
However, I do sincerely apologize for delaying my statement even though there were many people who wanted it, and many who criticized me about it.
This is bcause the movie that I was currently filming for had schedules up to February 24th. I believed that it was my duty to finish the leftover filming, and that staying on set was the least way of harm to the staff. Thankfully, I was able to wrap up the filming that was promised with many staff and actors.
I say once again that the statements by those anonymous accounts are definitely not true.
I have gone through a lot of things, and have come here with a suffocating heart not just as an actor, but as a human being. I once again apologize for taking the time to thoughtfully write my statement.
What do you think about his statement?
