Mental Coach Jegal Episode 7 Recap
Lee Moo Kyeol suffers anxiety due to his yips during the team selection competition, leading him to almost drown in the pool. Park Ji Su also quits the short-track speed skating team, allowing Cha Ga Eul and other athletes to compete in the Olympics.
The new episode starts with Cha Ga Eul coming to the No Medal Club to ask for Jegal Gil's help for the first time. As she starts her consultation, she receives a journal from the mental coach to help her in her everyday life.
Because of what happened, Jegal Gil and the No Medal Club started planning to take down Coach Oh Dal Sung for good.
Meanwhile, Cha Moo Tae still thinks of what their mother, Shim Bok Ja, said about not saying anything when she saw the coach beating her daughter. Per the matriarch, he cannot do anything as Cha Ga Eul's future depends on Oh Dal Sung. Goo Tae Man tries luring him to a job again, but he refused again.
Lee Moo Kyeol, on the other hand, receives hate comments after his recent hospitalization. Jegal Gil then begins his consultation with the swimmer. It turns out his OCD was rooted when his coach told him he did not deserve to date Cha Ga Eul because he was only a bronze medalist at that time.
Eventually, Cha Ga Eul brings him to the No Medal Club and introduces him to the members.
The No Medal Team finds out that the Chinese restaurant Oh Dal Sung goes to is an illegal sports gambling venue. Cha Moo Tae appears and tells Jegal Gil that the coach is also a broker.
They finally catch Coach Oh Dal Sung, but Park Seung Ha makes the operation complicated by appearing in the scene. Goo Tae Man goes to the No Medal Club and thanks Jegal Gil for his move as it reveals other issues in the Olympic team.
He reportedly uses him to catch Oh Dal Sung and Jeon Chang Gil at the same time. Cha Moo Tae also becomes part of his plan in return for ousting the coach.
