On January 26, the production released the initial series of posters for the Korean-Chinese co-production through its official account on Sina Weibo.
"Mr. Right" marks the dramatic television comeback for Ji Chang Wook, following the overwhelming successful of his portrayal of Park Bong Soo, an intrepid investigative reporter by day and high-priced courier by night, in the KBS2 series, "Healer."

In "Mr. Right," a Chinese-language drama which is also referred to by the title "My Male God," Ji portrays Wang Wei An, the male protagonist who is impacted by both extreme poverty and the extraordinary circumstances surrounding a conglomerate.
According to a report published by Sports Seoul, Wei An is a character who conceals his true identity of a tycoon, while working in a part-time job, in a scenario that sounds like a gender-reversal on the 2015 series, "High Society."
Wang Xiao Chen (Good Time, Good Times) is Yang Hai Yi, his burgeoning love interest, who is the heiress to a major corporation. She becomes entangled with Wei An, following a bankruptcy scandal.
In accordance with the Chinese post-production model, "Mr. Right" began filming in November 2015 and is expected to wrap in February 2016. The series is slated to air in spring 2016 and will be broadcast in mainland China.
Ji Chang Wook also stars in the upcoming Korean film, "Fabricated City." Speculation continues to surround his projects in 2016, as the 28-year-old actor is expected to begin his mandatory military service, before the end of the year.
