3. Another way of engaging with psychopaths
Psychopath series are not rare in Korea. There are also other series with the same genre but Mouse has different approaches in dealing with the said people.
Mouse leaves you a question even before the story has started. This question has also been surfacing before the series premieres:
If you have known that the baby in your belly has psychopath genes, would you still choose to born him/her or would you resort to abortion?
Would you continue to give him life despite the consequences you will face in the future? Which decision is less inhuman? And the decision you wouldn’t regret?

Special mention to Lee Seung Gi as the main lead of this series!
He proves once again that he is an expert in this field. His wide acting skill in conveying the character of Jung Ba Reum is just so good that all of us might be surprised.
No doubt that he is really a good actor and deserves more recognition and praises in the industry.
5. All-rounded casts
Aside Lee Seung Gi, the rest of the casts are all-rounded and versatile!
Each character has stories to tell and the casts portray their respective roles perfectly. Commending Lee Hee Jun, Park Ju Hyun, Kwon Hwa Woon, and Kyung Soo Jin for giving us convincing characters that add to the thrill of the series.
Another daebak for the casts!
6. Cogent and eerie cinematography
Since it is an action and thriller series, the vibe and atmosphere of the cinematography compel to the genre that makes us feel the real deal of thriller series.
The way the motion of the camera shifts in the perfect angle, the color theme of the series, and even how was the crime committed are all convincing.
