Oh Ji-ho (Hangul: 오지호; born April 14, 1976) is a South Korean actor. He is best known for his roles in the television series Couple or Trouble (2006), Single Dad in Love (2008),[1] and The Slave Hunters (2010).[2][3][4] He also starred in the films My Wife is a Gangster 3 (2006), Sector 7 (2011),[5] and The Grand Heist (2012).[6][7]

Personal life[edit]

On January 9, 2007, Oh's ex-girlfriend, a bar hostess identified only by her surname Lim, killed herself shortly after they broke up. Oh said though he loved her, Lim was the one who ended their 2-year relationship because she didn't want to get in the way of his career.[8] But Lim's bereaved family and friends insisted that Oh dumped her on January 3, seriously hurting her and driving her to suicide.[9] A TV program later interviewed Lim's relatives and with their permission, entered her bedroom, and some of Oh's personal items were shown on camera, such as his screenplay and photos. After the show was aired, the TV station was severely criticized by the public for compromising the privacy of the people involved.[citation needed]

Oh married his girlfriend, a woman who works in the fashion industry with the surname Eun, on April 12, 2014 at the Shilla Hotel.[10][11][12][13]
