Watch: Lee Seung Gi, Lee Hee Joon, Park Ju Hyun, Kyung Soo Jin, And More Are Dedicated In Script Reading For New Drama
“Mouse” is a 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?”
Lee Seung Gi stars as Jung Ba Reum, an upstanding and naive rookie police officer with a passionate belief in justice. Lee Hee Joon stars as Go Moo Chi, a hard-boiled detective who is motivated by revenge for the death of his parents, who were murdered by a serial killer when he was a child. Together, these men find themselves on the trail of an evil predator who is described as the “top 1 percent” of psychopaths.
In the behind-the-scenes video, Lee Seung Gi is amused at his character’s innocence as he tries to convince his partner to let him go on the case with him. Lee Hee Joon exudes a forceful charisma as he talks about his character’s past trauma.
Park Ju Hyun plays Oh Bong Yi, a troublemaker high school student who lives with her grandmother and excels at sports, including martial arts. Kyung Soo Jin plays Choi Hong Joo, a producing director who has numerous awards under her belt but hides a secret past in which she was used as a pawn to catch a murderer as a child.
In the video, Park Ju Hyun shows how Oh Bong Yi gets into fights with her grandmother as well as Jung Ba Reum, who tries to teach her proper manners but gets rebuffed by her rudeness and coldness. Kyung Soo Jin shows how her character is dedicated to tracking down killers despite her traumatic past.
In some behind-the-scenes interviews, Lee Seung Gi shares his admiration for Lee Hee Joon, while Lee Hee Joon shares that he’s a big fan of the child actors on the show, including “When the Camellia Blooms” star Kim Kang Hoon. Kyung Soo Jin expresses her hopes that the viewers will be hooked on the mystery in the drama, as she is also very curious as to who the true criminal is.
