Mental Coach Jegal: Episodes 9-10
As our psychological mentor continues to do what he does most effective and mentor athletes sorely in have to have of him, an outdated enemy boomerangs again to the ice rink (yet again). Meanwhile, appreciate is in the air, and the confessions are not refined.
EPISODES 9-10 WEECAP
I’m starting to reduce keep track of of what this show’s precise plot is — considering that it looks like the exact same simple arc each and every week on repeat — but I’m even now taking pleasure in our wacky warm-hearted Gil get correct to the soul of the make any difference with the athletes he allows.
This 7 days opens with the coaching journey promised to Dr. Park, Gil, Ga-eul and Mu-gyeol at the stop of last week’s episodes. They are tagging together with the archery crew even though, so it implies frightening have faith in schooling, all-nighters, and the like — but don’t be concerned, there’s still home for comedy and a excellent pep discuss. For occasion, when they stop by their initial halt and take pics in that big nest — I was dying! There was one thing about Jung Woo and that caw seem result that killed me. I rewinded that scene way as well several times.
But laughs apart, the “trip” is truly about hardcore psychological education. We see Dr. Park try out to get through to Ga-eul as she trains, Physician Music (Cha Before long-bae) check out to get through to archery star SHIN YE-JI (Song Ji-received), and of class we have Gil hoping to get Mu-gyeol to make it through his h2o trauma teaching. All the athletes have major responsibility psychological baggage about their fathers, and our psychological coach is to the rescue!
Gil is the a single Ga-eul now trusts and cries to — coming deal with to facial area with her unhappiness and guilt around her father. Gil also allows Mu-gyeol to understand that his personal trauma is about his (horrible) phase-father and childhood. And it is the very same for Ye-ji, who has her own guilt all around her father’s loss of life and have to occur to conditions with it and enable herself to grieve. No matter what the difficulty at hand, Gil would seem to have the warmth and encouragement to get these kids to handle their shiz and understand what it is that is definitely blocking them. Even Ga-eul now shares with others what she’s discovered from him: we develop when we’re at our weakest.
One of the occasions all through the trip is a bungee bounce, and prior to Mu-gyeol jumps, he screams out: “I like you, Ga-eul!” He’s been not-so-subtly hovering around her like an adoring pup, and wants to date her once more. I so appreciate this smitten model of our swim star! His kiss could not occur to fruition, but his selfless treatment for Ga-eul gets him into the drinking water yet again (yay!) when he rescue-dives to help save her.
Even though all this therapeutic is going on, while, the scheming is nevertheless likely sturdy, and Tae-man is at it once again with the unexciting blur of unions, committees, and ability-hungry males that are rubbing their palms jointly for a plan much better than the final. The extensive and brief of it is this: Coach Oh is back in cost of the shorter-monitor group (yet again)(for the 3rd time), and Tae-gentleman resigns his place at the Human Rights Committee only to also boomerang again as head of the skating union. Huh? I am not amused by any of this it is acquiring old, and I would rather these men get overwhelmed presently so we can aim on the therapeutic and all the other, much more attention-grabbing people.
Coach Oh, of study course, is again to his common crap. He sets up another selection race, torments the girls, pits them in opposition to every other, and attempts to repair the race yet yet again. But by this third time (although it feels like the 500th time!), the girls are lastly starting to stand up to him. They skate their race the way they want to — like authentic athletes — and we see the price of that in Ga-eul’s beaming smile afterwards. She may well have fallen and gotten disqualified, but she skated freely, and that is the reply to the concern which is been haunting her: what is it I really want?
But that’s not the conclude of Ga-eul’s jubilant moment. After standing up to the Mentor and having saved by nevertheless a different epic Gil slo-mo punch, she bursts out with: “I adore you, coach!” And I never know who is extra horrified: Mu-gyeol, standing down the corridor Dr. Park, standing beside him like she’s on the lookout at the wreck she noticed coming or Gil, who is just standing there in shock, only to grab his face in torment that’s comedic genius. Roll credits.
I certainly did not count on them to go this way with the Gil/Ga-eul rapport, but I should have — it is functioning so effectively and feels so clean because it is bringing hints and jabs from earlier in the drama complete circle. Our early episodes experienced those jokes about Gil’s age and the blind date misunderstanding, but additional current episodes (and this week’s in certain) leaned a lot on the similar, as if telling us what was going to transpire up coming.
We not only saw Mu-gyeol having a tiny jealous of Ga-eul’s apparent easiness when she’s with Gil, but balking at his welcoming physical affection, and mistaking the phrase “rapport” for “ppo ppo” (a brief kiss). Then, there was the scene where by Dr. Park solemnly warned Gil that she considered Ga-eul was acquiring a crush on him. Gil had laughed it off as absurd, but they agreed to observe out for any psychological transference going on. I wager that conversation was rolling through Gil’s horrified thoughts after Ga-eul’s hallway confession lol.
As significantly as I catch myself pondering why this drama desires 16 episodes if we’ve now been by means of 3 rounds with the exact villain, I genuinely did get pleasure from this week’s episodes. The drama is at its greatest when Gil is totally free to be sweet and encouraging, and I love his wacky methods and pep talks and improv songs live shows for the kids.
The drama is wealthy and attention-grabbing adequate without the need of the redundant villain plot arcs, so I’m hoping we can lean a tiny much less on Coach Oh’s whiny voice and Tae-man’s tantrums and/or threats and as an alternative devote a lot more time with our athletes and their coaches. Despite the fact that, I will say, the small dip into Tae-man’s crush on Dr. Park was unusually amusing. It does not feel to suit his character at all — all of a sudden he gets derpy and likeable — which is what manufactured it truly feel all the a lot more entertaining when the drama fully commited to it. (But continue to, Kwon Yul, why’d you decide on this purpose?)
