Biography

Early life

Oh was born in Nepean, Ontario to middle-class Korean immigrant parents Joon-Soo (John) and Young-Nam, who had come to Canada in the late 1960s. Her father is a businessman and her mother a biochemist.[2] Oh grew up living on Camwood Crescent in the Ottawa[3] suburb of Nepean, Ontario, where she began dancing and acting at an early age.[4] For example, at the age of 10, she played "The Wizard of Woe" in a class play, "The Canada Goose".

Later, at Sir Robert Borden High School, she founded the Environmental club (BASE - Borden Active Students for the Environment), leading a campaign against the use of styrofoam cups. While at Sir Robert Borden High School she was Student Council President. While in high school, she played the flute and continued both her ballet training and acting studies; however, she knew that she "was not good enough to be a professional dancer"[4] and eventually focused solely on acting. This interest led her to take drama classes, act in school plays, and join the drama club where she took part in the Canadian Improv Games and Skit Row High, a comedy group. Against her parents' advice, she rejected a four-year journalism scholarship to Carleton University to study drama at the National Theatre School in Montreal, paying her own way. She told her parents that she would try acting for a few years, and if that failed, return to school.[5] Sir Robert Borden High School (SRB) is a high school located on Greenbank Road in Ottawa, Ontario. ...
