Jung Woo And Kwon Yool Are Former Athletes Who Have Bad Blood In “Mental Coach Jegal”
The upcoming sports drama is 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.
Kwon Yool will portray Gu Tae Man, the director of the Human Rights Center in the Korean Olympic Committee. The former Taekwondo Olympic gold medalist has a strong desire for power and is the reason Je Gal Gil’s life was transformed overnight.
On September 8, “Mental Coach Jegal” released new stills of Je Gal Gil and Gu Tae Man’s reunion in 13 years. The two seem to be at a party with drinks, and Je Gal Gil sings with a straight face while Gu Tae Man stares at him in a prickly manner from behind. On the other hand, Gu Tae Man seems to be enjoying his drink in a relaxing atmosphere. However, the following photo hints that the two will engage in a heated confrontation. The room fills with tension as they glare at each other with icy eyes. What is the reason for their unending grudge against each other?
