Adapted from the novel with the same name, She and Her Perfect Husband revolves around single lawyer Qin Shi (Yang Mi) who has many aspirations for her career. However, she is constantly pressured by her parents to get married. A renowned law firm is looking to hire a family lawyer, but the job requires the candidate to be married. Her brother fills out her job application without her knowledge and indicates that she is already married. Qin Shi is stuck in a predicament where she is hired and finds herself married to Yang Hua (Xu Kai), who agrees to the arrangement because he does not want to be forced into another marriage by his parents. Their parents and Qin Shi’s ex-boyfriend suspect the marriage is not authentic, but living together in the same space causes Qin Shi and Yang Hua to fall in love and eventually become a real couple.
Despite their eight-year age gap, Yang Mi and Xu Kai look outwardly compatible. Working with Yang Mi for the first time, Xu Kai shares his excitement and hopes that he will be able to bring out a new character completely different from himself in She and Her Perfect Husband.
