My apologies for posting this late because my internet connection seems to disconnect whenever it’s time for me to watch/blog. How unlucky lol! Despite my unluckiness, good luck seems to keep showering on “My Best Ex-Boyfriend” as it has already earned 1.5 billion views for today’s episodes that I’ll be recapping yay! With this, let me share with you a photo that Viola Mi (whom we haven’t been seeing as Xiangnan) shared on her Weibo to celebrate this success!
Episode 31 started with the famous line that Fangsi said to Tang when the full trailer was first premiered! With two of our main leads out of the picture (Tang and Xiangnan), both of these episodes are centered on Fangsi, the heroine! Speaking of Fangsi, it’s Maggie Jiang’s 29th birthday today yay! She has already become my instant favorite by just watching this drama. Wish her all the best! 😀
Harsh words from our pretty female lead to her childish ex-boyfriend!
This has led to our male lead to be drunkenly upset because he thought she promised him that she’d stay with him until the end…
Fangsi has had enough of Li Tang and his immaturity.
We’ll see that Fangsi was lying, of course! Totally not buying it 😉
Pro-Tang momma is just telling her daughter to be more patient with him but if I were Fangsi, I would’ve had enough already too!
Fangsi and Haoran share a conversation which was suddenly interrupted by Da Luo’s delivery of bad news…
So Fangsi and Da Luo went to Tang’s house and they just saw traces of his things (phone, clothes, etc). She got mad at Da Luo for not being a responsible buddy but I actually agree with his reply to her.
Da Luo delegated the task of being the acting manager of Tang Huang while he leaves to find Tang. He gave her all the company’s passwords on a paper.
For the first time ever, our heroine cried!!! We can actually remember that she promised herself that she would never shed a tear for anyone but she actually did now 😦
Fangsi told everyone that Tang is out on a business trip in order to cover up for him. Haoran knows the truth though so he wants her to bail out on him because it’s not worth it anymore…
Our heroine’s voice was cracking and she was on the verge of shedding tears again 😥
You’re just hurting yourself, Haoran… 😦
If I’m not mistaken, Fangsi likened her feelings for Tang to a black coffee. She knows that it’s bitter and acidic but she still goes ahead and drinks it.
Fangsi’s literally doing everything for Tang Huang including the thing that she hates the most: attending parties/cocktails because she hates small talks. Haha!
Good thing she has Xiao Nai by her side and also Haoran who brought his own male version of Xiao Nai. And voila, Benjamin-Xiao Nai ship has been formed! I just love it 😉
Fangsi’s momma has so much faith in Tang being the pro-Tang that she is! She believes that he’s going to come back because he also came back even after 6 years so he better not disappoint her.
Haoran gives Fangsi a lesson on how to deal with clients after finding out that she’s just going to a meeting without any knowledge in handling one. Haoran’s method of teaching was just so funny and flirtatious haha! However, Fangsi hasn’t been succeeding in applying her lessons…
So she suddenly remembered what Tang taught her before about handling them! (aww)
Now that she remembered, she actually imagined Haoran was Tang. Trust me, my heart was just squealing because of joy. Bad news, Haoran, she didn’t really learn from you… haha!
Fangsi’s obviously missing Tang’s presence by just staring at their love token.
Fangsi told Haoran that she’s going to play basketball with a client in order to have a better partnership but Haoran couldn’t believe that she could actually play. So they did a one-on-one match but Fangsi’s head wasn’t really in the game because she was remembering another game…
Flashback scene: I actually found it strange as well that Fangsi was the only girl in the competition during their college days haha! No surprise that there was a basketball scene as most of Jerry’s works had him playing basketball. Although I’m not sure if it’s merely coincidental but he even starred in a basketball 2008 TW-drama “Hot Shot”. It’s also one of his favorite sports so trust him to do his own stunts when it’s basketball 😉 okay I’m spouting fangirling nonsense again haha!
Fangsi fell down but no one helped her but Tang did 😀
So they actually met in a basketball match?! That was totally unexpected!
Oh Li Tang, Fangsi’s begging you to stay out of her head please!
but if you could come back, then that would be much better!
I love that she said this statement so many times in this episode alone. It gave me so much feels! Really shows how much she believes in him when no else doesn’t anymore.
also known as more time = maybe 2 more episodes before he comes back? 😀
I should’ve started calling Xiao Nai, Du Niang, and Jiaxin as Gossip Girls earlier on but let me just use it starting now haha! So the Gossip Girls are celebrating because supermodel Su’s actually going to wear white for the first time ever and it’s for Tang Huang.
They congratulated Fangsi for turning an almost bad news to good news. Then she remembered that it was her beloved Tang who helped her in handling the Su-white clothing issues matter.
She said that she actually doesn’t know how she’ll be able to survive without Tang because he’s the one who’s been making her dreams come true (*my heart*).
So it turns out that Li Tang’s house password is not his birthday, not Xiangnan’s, and not even Fangsi’s! It’s actually the date when him and Fangsi broke up… I don’t even know why someone would use a break-up date as a password when it’s a reminder of a sad/heart-breaking past but ohwell, our Tang may have his own reasons.
Fangsi went inside Tang’s house and tidied up his things (which he usually does for her). She said that even if both Da Luo and Haoran don’t think that he’s coming back, she still thinks otherwise.
and this scene really touched me! Okay fine, you may say that anything that has to do with Tang-Fangsi touches my heart but it just really does… haha! She said that she would always think of Li Tang no matter how she feels, whether she’s happy or not.
then there we have the cliche I will talk to a picture of you since you’re not in front of me kind of drama scene… I have actually never seen anyone do this (or maybe you do?!) but all is forgiven because this is a rare Fangsi scene!
Fangsi wanted to tell Mr. Li that Tang has been missing even if she was quite hesitant too because it wouldn’t lead to a good outcome.
When she finally got to talk to him, all he did was to praise her and Tang for doing a good job in overcoming the problems regarding Cui Can.
Haoran tells Fangsi that he might be part of the board of directors of Qiao Ruisi. Yay!
Haoran told her that there would be a special celebration on the 10th but Fangsi’s the only guest. He did it on purpose so that they could celebrate after Cui Can’s 2nd series press conference. Fangsi was the one who made it on the 10th for the reason that…
Yesss, their break-up date! I can’t deal with my feelings anymore *tears*
We get a small scene of our newest ship on board, Xiao Nai and Benjamin! He gets mad at her for being snobbish and cold just like her boss Fangsi when he was actually willing to help her. Cuties!
Yes, Benjamin! Haoran definitely will…
I just had to screencap this because Jiaxin’s s’s such an adorable gossip girl! They were talking about the many rumors that the media has made up just to answer why Da Luo and Tang have been missing.
See, Benjamin! Haoran’s really going to speed things up with Fangsi 😉 He’s been preparing for tonight’s celebration with Fangsi.
The fact that Fangsi wore Tang’s love token for her already killed me… why would you do that?! 😥 it will definitely act as her lucky charm for today’s press conference!
but I spoke too soon because the people have gone wild… never imagined that the media invited to a presscon like this could be so immature and insensitive!
Good thing our heroine’s one tough cookie to break! And also…
Haoran to the rescue! He abruptly left his presentation when he saw the commotion in the news so now…
He just lost his chance to be the chairman of the board… Love can really make you act beyond crazy!
oh no! Fangsi’s badge/token/emblem (lots of names for it!) has gone missing 😮
Fangsi’s momma probably tried to tell Haoran that Fangsi still has feelings for Tang but Haoran didn’t want to hear that of course so he just left right away.
Just like my heart now… 😦 but at least she found it!
Our Fangsi’s definitely not in the mood to celebrate. This is all your fault, Tang!
Haoran wants to find where Fangsi is but Xiao Nai couldn’t help him so he tried to search all the possible places that Fangsi could go to.
Fangsi wanted Tang to see what she did today because she’s sure that he would be so happy and that the date today would give him better memories to remember now.
Fangsi goes to the place where she and Tang usually meet up for dates years ago. Flashback scene: our Tang was always late!
They are just too adorable for my life! I especially love their happier flashback scenes.
*more tears*. Thank you for disappearing, Li Tang! or Fangsi would’ve never realized these things.
It’s going to be a difficult task, Mr. Yin! We end this episode with a preview that I wish I didn’t watch because I still have so many things to do but now I’m going crazy because I want to watch the next episodes so badly already!
My thoughts in a nutshell:
- I love that they finally showed Fangsi crying! It would be too unrealistic if she actually never showed her weakness but portrayed her as a tough cookie all the way. Sometimes, a person can only handle too much but life must still go on.
- Even if I have said it explicitly that I love Tang and Fangsi so much, I just hate Tang for disappearing again when he clearly said before that he would never disappear again.
- Thank you Haoran for taking care of our girl! I’d love to have someone like you 😉
- However, Fangsi’s flashbacks/imagination of Tang just gave me so much feels. It just goes to show that she cares so much about him in which we’ve actually never seen in the previous episodes!
- “You don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone” is just so applicable for Fangsi about Tang!
- When she kept saying that she trusts and believes in him that he’ll come back, it just touched my heart so much! Okay I’ll stop spazzing about my ship now (it’s really hard, okay haha!).
- I’ll stop talking about my Tang-Fangsi ship because we have a new ship right here, Benjamin and Xiao Nai! I’m right on board, haha!
- So what did you think of today’s episodes?? 😀 Please tell me by commenting below!
Love reading your recaps & comments. Yup, a new ship is born! And like you, I’m boarding on it too!

You’re welcome and thank you so much for reading! 🙂 I’ll try if I can 😀
I’m watching this drama because of Jerry Yan. All the actors are good but i’m kinda disappointed with Maggi. Jerry is soooooooooo sweet with her but she’s not. kind of lousy. The second lead actress is really good even in her sweet scenes with Jerry Yan. But i still wish Jerry and Maggi to date in real life. She resembles Jerry’s ex girlfriend lol

You’re not the only one who thinks that Maggie doesn’t act well. Although I disagree with your opinion, I still respect it so thank you for sharing 😀 And yes, she actually resembles Lin Chi-Ling and they even worked in a movie before! I wouldn’t mind that Maggie and Jerry would end up together as well 😀
Most of them look alike due to their plastic surgery.
Btw, I’m waiting for this drama to be aired in the Philippines. And definitely it will be aired for 3-4 months just like The Loving Never Forgetting the aired this for almost 4 months. tsk tsk tsk
That’s true! They only air almost half of the episodes so that it would air longer 🙂
