Lee Seung-gi becomes rookie cop for tvN drama Mouse
It was reported back in April that Lee Seung-gi was considering a new drama, and now he has finally confirmed his next project (thank goodness because I needed something to erase Vagabond from my memory).
His new project is this tvN drama called Mouse, and he will be playing a rookie cop with youthful, idealistic notions about fighting for justice.
Mouse begins with the question: If you, an expecting mother, had confirmed with DNA evidence that the fetus in your womb was a psychopath, what would you do? In the drama, Lee Seung-gi pursues this type of natural-born psychopath killer who has instilled terror into the entire nation until a standoff occurs. Then, somehow they end up with completely swapped lives.
I really hope this drama is a hit for Lee Seung-gi, but his character does sound vaguely like the one from You’re All Surrounded. Hopefully, the psychopath angle will makes things more interesting.
Upcoming tvN drama Mouse is set to air in the early half of 2021 on tvN. Choi Ran (Black, God’s Gift – 14 Days) is attached to pen the scripts and the PD has yet to be announced.
