Jung Woo and Lee Yoo Mi were confirmed to be in talks for a tvN sports drama Last November.

Jung Woo, Lee Yoo Mi, Kwon Yool, and Park Se Young have all been cast in the upcoming drama "Mental Coach Je Gal Gil" (literal title), on March 18th as confirmed by TvN.

"Mental Coach Je Gal Gil" is a sports drama about a former national athlete who retires from athletics after sparking a scandal and goes on to work as a mental coach for departed professional athletes and current athletes who have hit a rough patch.

Jung Woo will play Je Gal Gil, a former national Taekwondo athlete noted for his dedication and eccentric charms.

Je Gal Gil is permanently banned and dubbed the unfortunate Taekwondo prodigy after causing an extraordinary accident in the athlete's village.

Je Gal Gil returns to the athlete's community as a mental coach after overcoming his past trauma and regaining his mental health.

 Lee Yoo Mi, who starred in Squid Game, will join him in the starring role. She plays Cha Ga Eul, a former short-track gold medalist who has hit a rough patch.

Kwon Yul portrays Koo Tae Man, a former Olympic gold winner in taekwondo who is now the director of the Sports Association's Human Rights Center. With a great desire for power, he aspires to a higher position.

Park Se Young transforms into Park Seung Ha, the training center's psychologist. She reunites with Jae Gal Gil, the person she believed was the worst thing that had ever happened to her.


Meanwhile, Mental Coach Je Gal Gil will premiere in the second half of 2022.
