tvN’s new sports drama has highlighted the highs and lows of training in a new teaser!
The upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “Mental Coach Jegal” is a sports drama about a former national athlete who quits sports after causing a scandal and becomes a mental coach to help both former professional athletes who have retired and current athletes who have fallen into a slump.
Jung Woo stars as former national Taekwondo athlete Je Gal Gil who later becomes a mental coach at the athlete’s village. After he causes an unprecedented accident in the village during his athlete days, Je Gal Gil is permanently expelled and coined the unlucky Taekwondo prodigy.
Lee Yoo Mi stars as Cha Ga Eul, a short track speed skating gold medalist who’s fallen into a slump. After they meet, Je Gal Gil and Cha Ga Eul help each other face their inner wounds and reach turning points in their lives in the process.
On August 16, tvN unveiled a second teaser for “Mental Coach Jegal” that focuses on the difficulties athletes face. Various athletes including Je Gal Gil and Cha Ga Eul fall over and find themselves in a slump after being constantly scolded, but they courageously get back on their feet.
Je Gal Gil narrates the optimistic twist, saying, “The moment you fall into a slump, the real race starts,” and Cha Ga Eul is shown at the starting line with her shiny skate and a determined gaze.
