tvN’s Mouse releases second teaser featuring Lee Seung-gi, Lee Hee-joon
New promo has been released for Lee Seung-gi’s (Vagabond) upcoming drama Mouse. He plays the good-natured, upstanding rookie of the neighborhood police station who ends up partnering with Lee Hee-joon (Mistress) whose character is a ruthless police investigator with his mind set on revenge against the killer that murdered his parents. Together, they pursue a psychopath who is in the top percent of most dangerous and evil human predators in the nation.
Lee Seung-gi’s character is warm-hearted to the point that one of his nicknames is the “Human Vitamin” (in other words, he’s got all the goodness of a vitamin but in human form). People around him even wonder, “How can such a genuinely good person exist?” His personality shows through in the recently released stills as he carefully applies ointment to an elderly lady’s ankle and moves boxes for people in his community. As he begins to track down the most feared serial killer in Korea, something happens and his entire world is upended.
The 15-second teaser begins with a figure in a dimly lit wrestling ring. Lee Seung-gi looks dejected, as he rides in a car driven by Lee Hee-joon. Text is interspersed between scenes, saying: “That person… is hunting…humans.” A shower drain is shown, implying a potentially criminal cleanup, and Lee Seung-gi is found lying on the ground, in uniform, in the rain. An anonymous figure turns away from the scene of people gathered in the rain. Lee Hee-joon’s voiceover says: “Nobody knows, [the serial killer] might still be hunting somewhere right now.”
Written by Choi Ran and directed by Choi Joon-bae, tvN Wednesday-Thursday drama Mouse will begin airing on February 24.
