Members of the matchmaking service are ambitious and aspire to upgrade their social status by marrying into the ranks of the elite, in particular those listed under the “Black” tier, an elite group consisting only of 0.001 percent of the population.
Netflix Korea released the characters’ posters for the series, starring Kim Hee Sun, Park Hoon, and Cha Ji Yeon. The director, Jung Min, commented on the role of Kim Hee Sun.
“I was hoping an actress with eyes that could reveal Seo Hye Seung’s complicated inner side [would play the role], and Kim Hee Sun was the perfect one.”
Cha Ji Yeon will play Choi Yoo Seon, the CEO of Rex, which is a top matchmaking agency with its firm logic that “marriage is a business where supply and demand meet” and accurately identifies customers’ needs.

Kim Jung Min mentioned the actress’s overwhelming aura and added,
“I thought [Cha Ji Yeon] would fit well with the role of Choi Yoo Seon who hides her ambitious and controls the upper echelons in her hands.”
