Watch: Lee Seung Gi Makes An Impressive Transformation Behind The Scenes Of “Mouse”
tvN has shared new unreleased behind-the-scenes clips from “Mouse”!
“Mouse” is a drama about a police officer named Jung Ba Reum (Lee Seung Gi) and a hardened detective named Go Moo Chi (Lee Hee Joon) who seeks revenge against the serial killer who murdered his parents. The two team up to track down an evil psychopathic predator.
The first clip is from the scene in Episode 3 where Jung Ba Reum and Oh Bong Yi (Park Ju Hyun) are eating at a restaurant. After scarfing down a lot of food, Lee Seung Gi shyly comments, “Wow, this is my dinner.” He then proceeds to grab more rice before jokingly calling out, “I’ll eat dinner first, everyone!”
Behind the scenes of Episode 4, when the two are at Oh Bong Yi’s grandmother’s grave, Park Ju Hyun clarifies, “Everyone, I’m not typically this exhausted, this is just my makeup. These are not my own chapped lips, these [flakes] are stuck on.”
The next part of the clip features Kim Young Ok as Oh Bong Yi’s grandmother Kim Gat Nan. The cast and crew bid farewell to her with flowers and cake at her final filming, and the actress shares her thoughts on the drama. She comments, “‘Mouse’ has meaning in its own way and is a drama that unravels society’s issues in a fun manner. Since I began early and am leaving midway, I feel sad saying goodbye. Although it was hard, I had fun. I ask that viewers watch the drama with affection and try to solve [the mystery] until the end. If you do, you’ll be able to experience some really classy fun.”
For Episode 9, Lee Seung Gi practices a wide variety of ways to say “I don’t know!” In the end, he suggests that he say nothing at all, which is what they end up going with.
Later in the episode, Jung Ba Reum is comforted by Oh Bong Yi. Behind the scenes, Park Ju Hyun is drying her hair that was drenched in the rain when Lee Seung Gi approaches her and asks, “Oh, this is what that sound was? I thought someone was vacuuming.” They then practice the best way for Lee Seung Gi to rest his head on Park Ju Hyun’s shoulder while the two are crouched down, but they adorably struggle to maintain their balance.
The last clips of the video feature footage from the drama’s poster shoots. Before posing, Lee Seung Gi confirms with the writer, “So [my character’s smile] is a smile that comes from the confidence of being able to control everything.” They agree, and the writer continues, “But to others, it has to come off as chilling.”
After shooting with Lee Hee Joon, Lee Seung Gi jumps into posing for his individual poster. When the writer compliments him, Lee Seung Gi checks out the photos for himself and declares in amazement, “That’s a completely different human.”
