Kwon Yul and Park Se Young are reportedly joining the new tvN sports drama Mental Coach Je Gal Gil (literal title).

According to Starnews, Kwon Yul and Park Se Young are positively reviewing the offers they received from Mental Coach Je Gal Gil.

The drama centers around a former national athlete who quit sports after an accident. After becoming a mental coach, he helps the players suffering from a slump with retired former experts and fights against the absurd world of winner-take-all.

Kwon Yul plays Gu Tae Man, a former taekwondo Olympic gold medalist who is now the director of the Human Rights Center of the Sports Association. Park Se Young takes on the role of Park Seung Ha, a psychologist in the training center.

Meanwhile, Special Labor Inspector Jo writer Kim Ban Di and Protect the Boss and Should We Kiss First? director Son Jung Hyun will come together for the production. The filming will begin as soon as the cast lineup is finalized and premiere within this year.
