Mental Coach Jegal Episode 6 Recap
Mental Coach Jegal episode 6 starts with Cha Ga Eul telling Jegal Gil she will not receive his consultation anymore. The mental coach, in return, agrees to it and says he will not talk to her unless she reaches out first. However, he notices the band-aid on her hand, which is similar to the one the person in his dreams has.
Jo Ji Young then blames Cha Ga Eul and accuses her of setting her up. Her actions now make the short-track speed skating team turn their backs on her.
Cha Ga Eul is still torn between participating in the Winter National Sports Festival application and the national team selection due to the legalities surrounding both competitions. Jegal Gil also becomes curious about what happened to Cha Ga Eul and Coach Oh Dal Sung four years ago.
Meanwhile, Lee Moo Kyeol's panic disorder has been publicized following his doping scandal. Still, he wants to compete during the selection process to prove himself, but Jegal Gil does not think he can do it because of his yips. He still does not want to accept his help despite his warning that he can suffer seizures because of the condition.
Goo Tae Man tries to lure Cha Moo Tae to work for him, but Cha Ga Eul's brother refuses the offer. As for Go Young To, he tells Jegal Gil that he only sent Coach Oh Dal Sung's warning due to fears that Cha Ga Eul might end up like him.
The national team selection starts for both swimming and short-track speed skating. Cha Ga Eul makes it to the top 5, but Lee Moo Kyeol suffers a seizure before the selection even begins.
When Coach Oh Dal Sung starts to question the result, Park Ji Su decides to leave the team instead because of his abuse.
Cha Ga Eul, on the other hand, comes to the No Medal Club and breaks down in front of everyone. She finally asks for help after all the abuses she went through.
In the end, Jegal Gil and Ko Young To team up again to oust Oh Dal Sung.
