Lee Yoo Mi Is An Ambitious Short Track Skater In A Deep Slump For New Drama “Mental Coach Jegal”

On August 18, tvN’s new sports drama released the first stills of Lee Yoo Mi!

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.

Lee Yoo Mi, who made a strong impact through projects such as “Squid Game” and “All of Us Are Dead,” will take on the role of Cha Ga Eul, a promising short track skater who overcomes a slump and aims for a resurgence.

In a still image, Cha Ga Eul’s cold expression that does not reveal any emotions and fierce gaze catch the attention of viewers. Cha Ga Eul has emerged as a promising athlete by winning a gold medal at the World Championships, but after she decides to join a works team, she falls into a slump. While she is pushing herself without revealing her feelings to anyone, she meets mental coach Jegal Gil (Jung Woo). In the process, she faces her present self and takes a new leap forward.

In another still, she is wearing a helmet, tricot, and frog gloves, waiting for the start signal on the ice rink. Cha Ga Eul and the other athletes’ serious looks on their faces convey overwhelming tension. In particular, the strong desire for a successful resurgence is shown in Cha Ga Eul’s fierce eyes as she is completely immersed in the competition, making the viewers’ hearts beat fast. Viewers are curious to find out whether Cha Ga Eul, who has great passion and enthusiasm for the short track, will be able to overcome her failure.

The production team remarked, “Lee Yoo Mi’s passion for her project is amazing. Even before filming started, she worked hard on practicing short track skating and fitness in order to portray her role as short track skater Cha Ga Eul, and from the first day of filming, she amazed the staff with a stable posture just like an actual athlete.” The team added, “Viewers will be able to discover new and charming sides of Lee Yoo Mi. Please look forward to ‘Mental Coach Jegal.’”

The drama will premiere on September 12 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
