According to the Korean Herald, the victim filed a lawsuit in December 2021 after Young-Soo rose to stardom following the broadcast of Squid Game on Netflix.

Aside from the jail term, he is also sentenced to 2 years of probation and he is required to complete 40 hours of sexual violence treatment programme.

“The content of the victim’s journal, and the content of her counseling after the incident is consistent with what happened, and her testimonies could not have been given unless she actually experienced it,” the Seongnam Branch of the Suwon District Court in Gyeonggi Province said Friday in its verdict.

 

On the basis that Young-Soo had no previous criminal records, the court said that his personal information or record would not be revealed, and he would not be restricted from any kind of employment in the future.
