Lee Seung Gi, Lee Hee Joon, Park Ju Hyun, And More Gather For 1st Script Reading Of Upcoming tvN Mystery Thriller
tvN’s upcoming mystery drama has released a photo from the cast’s first script reading!
“Mouse” (literal title) is a new mystery thriller set in a world where humans can identify psychopaths through a DNA test on a fetus in a mother’s womb. The drama centers around the question, “Would you give birth to a child knowing they were a psychopath?”
The released photos show off the cast’s chemistry and passion from their first script reading back in October 2020. Lee Seung Gi stars as Jung Ba Reum, an upstanding rookie police officer who passionately believes in justice. Lee Hee Joon plays Go Moo Chi, a hardened detective whose parents were murdered when he was young and is willing to resort to any means to avenge their deaths.
Park Ju Hyun will play troublesome high school student Oh Bong Yi who lives with her grandmother. Contrary to her small stature, Oh Bong Yi has a cool and tough personality and excels at all kinds of sports including martial arts and jiu-jitsu. Kyung Soo Jin plays producing director Choi Hong Joo who has numerous awards under her belt despite her young age. As a child, Choi Hong Joo was used as a pawn to catch a murderer and Kyung Soo Jin portrays her secretive character meticulously with utmost detail.
Ahn Jae Wook plays star neurosurgeon Han Seo Joon who is known for his genius skills, speech, and manners. His wife Sung Ji Eun will be portrayed by Kim Jung Nan who will emotionally connect with viewers and help them relate to the story. Block B’s P.O will play detective Shin who has just been named to the homicide team. Kim Kang Hoon, who plays Lee Seung Gi’s younger counterpart, is said to have greeted everyone brightly before completely transforming his gaze once the reading began. Even during a break, he did not leave his seat and continued to focus on the script, impressing staff and his fellow actors.
The producer commented, “The synergy between these actors as they acted through this turbulent plot was truly amazing. It was an environment of incredibly strong acting that even made the producers say, ‘I’m curious about the ‘Mouse’ we’ll see through the screen.’ The project has a unique tension that will make you breathe quietly and the characters and chemistry that will make your chest feel hot. ‘Mouse,’ which was exploding with energy starting from the script reading, will find its way to your homes this coming February. Please give it lots of attention.”
