Actor Oh Dal Soo has officially responded to reports regarding sexual harassment allegations made against him. Previously, reports said that the actor had been accused of sexually harassing his female juniors at a theater in Busan in the 1990s.
His official statement is translated below:
“This is actor Oh Dal Soo.
“First, I would like to apologize to many people for worrying you with this scandal.
“On February 15 and 19, someone anonymously posted a series of claims on a portal site which were deleted. I would like to address my stance on this matter.
“The claims that I have gotten surrounded by are not the truth. I did not do such acts.
“When I first saw reports based on the posts from the anonymous poster, I reflected on my life in the early 1990s with a heavy heart. I looked back 30 years ago when I was in my early 20s and I did not do such acts.
“However, many people had been hoping for my official statement and denounced me, and for that I sincerely apologize for the delay.
“The reason for the delay is because I had filming scheduled until February 24 for the movie I am currently a part of. As an actor, it was my duty to finish up the filming and I thought that this would bring less trouble for the production staff. Thankfully, I was able to finish the filming that I had promised to many staff members and actors.
“Once again, the claims in the anonymous posts are not true.
“After going through many different experiences, I have come here as an actor and as a human with a frustrated heart. Finally, I would like to apologize for needing time to carefully organize my statement.”
